The Gracz lab is hiring a postdoctoral researcher to join our lab in the Division of Digestive Diseases at Emory University. We are interested in understanding the genetic regulation of stem and progenitor cells in the intestine and liver. Our work focuses on the intersection of transcriptional regulation, chromatin, and cell biology.
The “big questions” we are pursuing include:
1. What defines “stemness” at the genomic level?
2. Is “stemness” restricted to specific cell types, or does it exist as a transient “state”?
3. How do different adult tissues utilize stem cells and “stemness” to maintain homeostasis and respond to injury?
Projects that address these questions are available in the areas of intestinal stem cell chromatin regulation, and liver/biliary injury and regeneration. Specific projects will be tailored to the interests of the postdoctoral candidate and research goals of the lab. The training environment within the Division, as well as across Emory University and the Children’s Hospital of Atlanta provides ample opportunity for collaboration and co-mentorship.
Our lab has expertise in a wide range of techniques, including transgenic/knockout mouse models, mouse and patient-derived organoids, genomics, and computational biology. We believe in embracing and adopting new technologies and experimental approaches that allow us to better answer our core biological questions. Candidates with expertise in any area of cell biology and/or genetics, along with strong oral and written communication skills, are encouraged to apply. Experience in computational biology is desirable, but not required.
The ideal candidate will bring enthusiasm and creativity to technically challenging benchwork. They will thrive in an environment that prioritizes experimentation to drive the intellectual advancement of the research program. An interest in joining a new/growing lab and helping mentor/train junior members is desired. We prioritize a diverse, kind, and collaborative environment that facilitates independence and career growth.
Start date is flexible within early-mid 2021.
