A postdoctoral fellow position is available immediately in the Lien Lab (Heart Regeneration Laboratory) at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles/University of Southern California. We are looking for a hard-working and passionate candidate interested in using zebrafish, and/or stem cell/organ culture to study molecular mechanisms of heart development, disease, and regeneration. The candidate will be involved in studying coronary and lymphatic vessel development and determine their roles in heart regeneration using various techniques including scRNAseq, generating and characterizing CRISPR mutants and molecular imaging.
A strong background in molecular biology, confocal imaging, and/or cell culture is required. Previous experience with generating transgenic and CRISPR mutant zebrafish is preferred but not required. Experience in (micro) surgery/dissection in mouse or zebrafish and in situ hybridization is also preferred but not required. A Ph.D. degree is required.
We offer competitive salary and excellent benefits. Interested candidates should submit their CV and names of 3 references to firstname.lastname@example.org.
