Duke University School of Medicine Postdoctoral Positions

Open postdoc positions (genetic and epigenetic regulation of lung regeneration and tumorigenesis)

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 lung 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 onditions. 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 provide access to state-of-the-art facilities. Candidates with back ground knowledge and hands-on experience in transcriptional regulation and bioinformatics skills are particularly welcome.

- A PhD or MD/PhD (or equivalent) in biological sciences (biology, biochemistry, cell biology or a related field).
- Strong research background in transcriptional regulation, cell biology, molecular biology, mouse models of cancer, and/or biochemistry. Prior experience in stem cells, chromatin biology and bioinformatics is advantageous.
- 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@duke.edu)
Applications will be reviewed until positions are filled. The positions are available from February 1, 2017.

Department Cell Biology, Duke University School of Medicine の Tata Lab では現在2名の Postdoc を新たに募集しております。本 Lab は 2016年9月に立ち上がったばかりの新しい Lab ですが、機材のセットアップはほぼ終えており、postdoc候補者の方の2月以降の着任後すぐにバリバリ研究を進められる環境にあります。PIである Dr. Tata は前任地である Harvard Stem Cell Institute では肺・気道を主に扱っており、Dukeでも肺の研究をメインに進めていく予定ですが、彼は上皮組織全般に研究範囲を広げたいと考えており、アプライされる方の肺の知識の有無は問わないとのことです。また 3C assay or Bioinformatics に優れる人材を大歓迎するとのことでした。インド人の Dr. Tata を筆頭に、ポーランド人、中国人、日本人(私)、ドイツ人(予定)、オーストリア人(予定)等々のメンバーで構成される非常に国際色豊かな Lab ですので、外国人という身分としては非常にやりやすい環境なのではないかと思います。ご質問がある方は前もって私(yoshi.kobay!
ashi@duke.edu) に尋ねてくださっても結構です。アプライされる方は Dr. Tata (purushothamarao.tata@duke.edu) へ直接メールをお送りください。
