Washington University School of Medicine Postdoctoral Position

Postdoctoral Position in Stem Cell Biology and Neural Development

A postdoctoral position is available to study transcriptional and epigenetic regulation of vertebrate neural development in the laboratory of Kristen L. Kroll at Washington University School of Medicine. We are defining how cells of the early embryo and embryonic stem cells control neural fate acquisition, neural stem and precursor cell maintenance, and neuronal differentiation. We are using genome-wide approaches to define the transcriptional regulatory networks that control neural development and are characterizing how epigenetic regulation modulates these neural gene regulatory networks. We are also assessing how dysregulation of epigenetic activities contributes to malignancy in medulloblastoma and glioblastoma. Biochemical and molecular characterization of essential regulatory molecules is complemented by work in mouse animal models and in mouse and/or human embryonic stem cell, neural stem cell, and other cell-based models.

Our laboratory is in an academic setting in the Department of Developmental Biology at Washington University School of Medicine (St. Louis), an internationally recognized research institution with a dynamic research environment and extensive infrastructural and core facility support. Postdoctoral appointees at Washington University receive a starting salary based on the NIH NRSA guidelines and a generous benefit package. Complete information on the benefit package is located on the WUSM Human Resources Benefits Website (http://medschoolhr.wustl.edu). The St. Louis area combines the attractions of a major city with family-friendly and affordable lifestyle opportunities (http://www.stlouis.com/).

Candidates should hold a recent PhD with less than 2 years of prior post-doctoral experience. Preference will be given to applicants with a strong interest in and research training relevant to the areas of vertebrate neural development, stem cell biology, and transcriptional or epigenetic regulation. US citizens are preferred. Interested candidates should send a CV/names of references by email to kkroll@wustl.edu or by regular mail to Kristen L. Kroll, Washington University School of Medicine, Campus Box 8103, 660 S. Euclid Ave, St. Louis, MO 63110.

Oregon Health & Science University Postdoctoral Position

This mentored position will empower the candidate to analyze complex conditional genetic mouse models of pediatric cancers for the purpose of developing novel molecular therapies. The primary goal for this fellowship is to understand the role of growth factors & kinases in the progression of the childhood muscle cancer, rhabdomyosarcoma. Employing molecular biology, biochemistry and multiscale imaging (whole animal to confocal microscopy), the candidate will have the opportunity to identify critical factors in tumor maintenance and tumor progression from which new therapies can be developed. Rapid translation to the clinic is the underlying goal. Candidates with experience in developmental biology or muscle biology are especially encouraged to apply.

Applicants will be able to find the position by entering IRC39103 into the search field on www.ohsujobs.com. For question, you can contact Charles via email, keller@ohsu.edu.
