Company Description:

Job Summary
The Martin lab is recruiting a postdoctoral research fellow interested in studying the underlying molecular, genetic, and epigenetic mechanisms of mammalian embryonic development.  The University of Michigan is a vibrant college town with a world-class research community.  Our highly collaborative group explores developmental mechanisms in CHARGE syndrome, a human genetic disorder and multiple anomaly condition that disrupts vision, hearing and balance, olfaction, reproduction, behavior/cognition, and overall growth and development.  Projects involve genomic and molecular analysis of developing neural tissues and organs in the mouse, and human iPS cells, with the goal of defining roles for the chromodomain protein CHD7 (mutated in CHARGE) in cellular proliferation, differentiation, and fate.  Next-generation sequencing approaches to comparative gene expression and regulation are also used to explore other neurodevelopmental disorders.  Desirable candidates will have a PhD in genetics, molecular biology, neuroscience, or a related biomedical science field.   
Principal Responsibilities:
To study function and development of neural stem cells in human and mouse tissues using a wide range of approaches including cell culture, expression analysis, genomics, and chromatin biology/biochemistry. 
Preferred Qualifications:
  • PhD in Genetics, Neuroscience, Developmental Biology, or related discipline
  • Strong background in mouse genetics is desirable but not necessary
  • Ability to think independently and work collaboratively
  • Ability to develop and adapt novel approaches
Additional Information:
To apply, please upload your CV and include three references. If you have specific salary requirements, please include them in your cover letter. All information is confidential.
