The successful candidate will study the roles of epigenetic regulation and the p53 signaling pathway in mouse embryonic stem cells using CRISPR-Cas9 screening. The overarching goal of this project is to understand how the p53 signaling pathways maintains the genomic stability of embryonic stem cells.
Requirements include strong background in biochemistry, molecular biology, and cell biology. Candidates with experience in genome-wide screening (CRISPR-Cas9 based), embryonic stem cells, and/or mouse model are encouraged to apply. Successful candidate must be expected to obtain a PhD and/or MD degree within 3 months or have less than one-year postdoctoral experience prior to the deadline.
