The Kathrein lab in the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of South Carolina has an opening for a postdoctoral research fellow. Our research focuses on understanding how chromatin remodeling regulates stem cell function using the hematopoietic system. We use a multidisciplinary approach to understand stem cell biology, combining work in human progenitor blood cells for ChIP-seq and RNA-seq with mechanistic experiments in both the zebrafish and mouse model systems. Our overall goal is to improve stem cell function for hematopoietic stem cell transplants and developing novel therapeutic approaches for cancer treatment.
We seek a dynamic, responsible, collaborative individual to join our group. Candidates much have recently obtained a PhD in a related field. Experience in zebrafish or mouse models is strongly desired as both mouse and zebrafish work will be a key component to the position. Primary responsibilities include experimental design, execution, and analysis. Experience with NGS data analysis a plus. The candidate must be able to work independently and collaboratively. Compensation will be commensurate with qualifications and in accordance with University and NIH guidelines.
Applicants should email a cover letter, CV, and contact information for 3 references to Dr. Katie Kathrein (Kathreinlab@gmail.com).
