The Indiana University School of Medicine, Department of Pediatrics, Herman B. Wells Center is seeking two postdoctoral positions in non-coding RNA and human cardiovascular research.
These positions will explore the mechanisms of early human heart formation and human inherited cardiovascular diseases using embryonic stem (ES) cell, patient-derived induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cell and heart tissue engineering approaches. The positions are for studying novel long non-coding RNAs in regulating early human heart development and heart disease. These projects are expected to reveal a new layer of regulators in controlling human heart formation, heart function and congenital heart disease.
The lab is well-equipped with Leica histological systems, Leica microscopes, 10X Genomics single cell sequencer, etc.
The successful candidate is expected to be self-motivated with a recent Ph.D. degree.
Candidates should have solid experience in molecular and cell biology with a good publication record.
Preference will be given to individuals with hands-on experience associated with RNA and/or epigenetic studies, such as RNA immunoprecipitation, chromatin immunoprecipitation assay (ChIP) and ChIP-seq. Bioinformatics or mouse experimental skills are a plus.
