Duke University School of Medicine Postdoctoral Positions

Postdoctoral research fellow positions:
The Tata lab at the Department of Cell Biology, Duke University School of Medicine has two openings for postdoctoral researchers to study cellular plasticity mechanisms in injury repair and tumorigenesis. We seek to understand the genetic and epigenetic basis of organ regeneration and tumorigenesis. We study the properties of stem/progenitor cells in diverse epithelial tissues (with a primary focus on lung epithelium) and their relationships with neighboring tissues in physiopathological conditions. Some of the specific projects include:

1) To study the role of a novel epithelial stem/progenitor cell population in lung injury repair process.
2) To study the genetic and epigenetic basis of cellular plasticity in organ regeneration and lung tumorigenesis
3) Single cell RNA sequencing approaches to identify novel cell types in lung
4) Intra vital live imaging to visualize tissue regeneration

We utilize genetic, live imaging, cell biological and next generation sequencing technologies to study the behavior of tissues at single cell level. We offer an inspiring intellectual, collaborative and multidisciplinary research environment to support your career goals and will have access to state-of-the-art facilities.

- A PhD or MD/PhD (or equivalent) in biological sciences (biology, biochemistry, cell biology or a related field).
- Strong research background in cell biology, molecular biology, mouse models of cancer, and/or biochemistry. Prior experience in stem cells, chromatin biology is advantageous (but not necessary).
- Evidence of successful completion of a research project (publications)
- An ability to work independently, interpret, present and discuss experimental data
- Excellent communications skills

To apply, please submit a cover letter (less than a page) that includes a short summary of interests, a CV, and the contact information of 3 professional references to Dr. Purushothama Rao Tata purushothamarao.tata@mgh.harvard.edu (and/or) purushhcu@gmail.com

Applications will be reviewed until positions are filled. The positions are available from October 1, 2016.
