Seeking postdocs to help establish a new field of spatio-genetic imaging at the University of Chicago

Our lab ( is active in both experiment and computation, with a home in both the Departments of Medicine and Molecular Engineering at the University of Chicago. We develop new DNA-based tools for the next generation of precision biology.

You can read some about our 2019 invention of DNA microscopy here:

Two of our recent papers:

Our lab has engineered chemical reactions that turn intact organism/tissue into massive networks of intercommunicating DNA molecules, encoding the entire organism/tissue's 3-dimensional geometry (and nucleotide-level genomic details) into a library of DNA sequences (that we can then read out). These advances set the stage for a new generation of imaging technologies for tissue biology and engineering.

We welcome candidates having a PhD in molecular biology, bioengineering, or a related field. Experience in Next Generation Sequencing protocol development and Python/Perl is helpful, but not required.
