the Institute of Human Genetics, CNRS, Montpellier, France Postdoctoral Position

A postdoctoral position is open in our laboratory at the Institute of Human Genetics, CNRS, Montpellier, France.

Place of work
The Institute of Human Genetics (www.igh.cnrs.fr) is a modern large CNRS Institute located in the University and Hospital area in Montpellier. Fully endowed with state-of-the-art scientific equipment, the IGH generates a stimulating and international research environment, for high-quality and intensive scientific life. The working language is English. The city is one of the most lively and concentrated areas for research scientists in France.

The team
Our multinational team wishes to understand how DNA replication origins are recognized, and how their organization is coordinated with the cell fate. Our model systems include cell cultures from both mouse and human cells, as well as in-vitro DNA replication systems from Xenopus eggs. Recently, our laboratory unravelled how genetic and epigenetic features shape DNA replication origin recognition and organization. The project is focused on functional aspects of metazoan DNA replication origins, using in-vivo cell systems as well as in-vitro cell systems to analyse the regulation of DNA replication and its associated factors.

ペンシルバニア大学 ポスドク募集


Thomas LeungはDavid BaltimoreラボでPh.D.をとり、スタンフォード大学でポスドクを終えた新進気鋭の免疫学者・再生医療研究者・Dermatologistで、ペンシルバニア大学で研究室を立ち上げました。性格は明朗快活、頭脳は明晰、人格的にも優れた人物で、日本や日本文化にも好意的です。


The laboratory of Thomas Leung at the University of Pennsylvania (www.thomasleunglab.org) is inviting applications for a postdoctoral researcher.

Our group studies how injured tissues heal, and in some cases, how injured tissues regenerate without a scar. We have innovated new methods for studying these processes in mice and humans, and discovered cellular, molecular, and genetic mechanisms governing inflammation, wound healing, and tissue regeneration. Based on our findings, we have several active clinical trials testing our conclusions in the clinic. As a practicing dermatologist, I try to use clinical observations to drive basic science discovery. An overarching goal of our work is to identify novel therapeutic strategies to improve healing (with or without scars) in humans.

We are seeking a qualified postdoctoral fellow with an interest in stem cells, inflammation, tissue regeneration, and regenerative medicine. The fellow will design and perform experiments using a variety of model systems (mouse, tissue culture, 3D human tissue culture) and techniques (molecular, biochemistry, genetic, histology, and genomics). An MD and/or PhD in a science-related field, excellent written and verbal communication skills, and the ability to work interactively are required.

Postdoctoral research in the lab commonly involves close interactions both within the lab and with collaborating groups at the University of Pennsylvania. Postdoctoral training includes participation in seminars and retreats of the Department of Dermatology and Institute of Regenerative Medicine. A major goal of our lab is to mentor and train fellows for future careers in academics and industry.
To apply, please email a letter of interest and a CV that includes three references to Dr. Leung (thl@upenn.edu). Please include a statement about your interest in our lab and your career goals and objectives.

Baylor College of Medicineポスドク募集

Shinya Yamamoto's laboratory in the Department of Molecular and Human Genetics and the Jan and Dan Duncan Research Institute (NRI) at Baylor College of Medicine (BCM) is actively recruiting highly motivated and hard-working postdoctoral fellows.

The Yamamoto lab (http://goo.gl/OayxUp) uses the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster to study the function of genes that are linked to neurological and neuropsychiatric disorders in human. We integrate state-of-the-art human genomics and Drosophila genetics tools & techniques to perform detailed in vivo functional studies of genes and variants that are associated with pediatric neurological diseases such as Autism and Intellectual Disability, as well as adult-onset disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease. The lab is also engaged in active collaborations with clinicians and clinical researchers in human genetics at BCM and around the country by functioning as one of the Model Organisms Screening Centers for the Undiagnosed Diseases Network (UDN, http://undiagnosed.hms.harvard.edu/). We also use mammalian model systems (e.g. cell lines, cultured neurons, mouse) to translate our basic findings from flies to human. The lab is part of the NRI (http://www.nri.texaschildrens.org!
/) and is immersed in a highly collaborative and stimulating environment.
