POSTDOC IN COMPUTATIONAL STEM CELL BIOLOGY AT UCSF
The Wagner lab at UCSF has an opening for postdoctoral fellow to develop and utilize computational / bioinformatic approaches to study the biology of embryonic and adult stem cell systems. This position will be partly supported by an NIH-funded Intestinal Stem Cell Consortium (ISCC), which aims to leverage integrated, large-scale genomic technologies (e.g. single-cell RNA-seq) to understand the behavior of stem cells in health and disease and to develop novel therapies targeting intestinal stem cells to regenerate the human intestine. We are seeking a postdoctoral fellow to undertake collaborative work with ISCC members, including the Klein and Boffelli labs at UCSF, as well as to pursue independent projects. Potential projects include cross-species comparisons of cell states and gene modules from large integrated single-cell RNA-seq datasets, construction of spatially-mapped reference atlases for biological tissues, and/or the development of novel computational methods for mapping cell state and lineage relationships. For more information see:
The laboratory space is located in the Ray & Dagmar Dolby Regeneration Medicine Building at the UCSF Parnassus Heights campus, in the center of San Francisco. UCSF offers a world-class developmental and stem cell biology scientific community and a supportive working environment.
The successful candidate should have a strong background in computational biology. Experience with developmental biology, stem cell, and/or intestinal systems is preferred. Interested candidates should submit a C.V. and names of at least 2 references to:
