Post-Doctoral Fellow: Epigenetic control of erythropoiesis

An NIH funded position is available in the Steiner laboratory, a collaborative laboratory that studies epigenetics in the context of erythropoiesis.  The average adult makes 2-3 million red blood cells per second to maintain steady state and avoid anemia.  The Steiner lab combines cell culture and mouse models with high throughput genomics assays to study this essential process.

Post-Doctoral Fellow:  Epigenetic control of erythropoiesis

Supervised by:  Laurie Steiner

Position Summary

An NIH-funded position for a postdoctoral fellow is available in the Steiner lab.  The goal of the project is to understand how chromatin modifiers regulate erythropoiesis. The project utilizes both animal and cell culture models, as well as FACS analyses and high throughput genomics assays. A successful candidate will likely have some experience with cell culture and animal work, and be willing to learn new techniques, including imaging flow cytometry and high throughput genomics assays, such as ATAC-seq.  

Required Education and Technical Competences

Doctoral degree with major course work, thesis, and prior peer-reviewed publication(s) in biology, biochemistry, or related field.  Experience and competence in design, performance, and interpretation of molecular and cellular biological studies required. Experience with flow cytometry and mouse models encouraged.
