A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Jian Xu, in the Children’s Research Institute of UT Southwestern Medical Center to study the epigenetic regulation of normal and malignant blood stem cell development. Our laboratory focuses on the intersection of transcriptional control with stem cell biology, hematopoiesis and cancer. We employ epigenetics, functional genomics, genome editing, and mouse genetics to define epigenetic and genetic programs controlling blood stem cell development, and how these processes go awry in cancer progression. The Xu lab at UTSW brings together enthusiastic scientists with diverse backgrounds, and provides a wide range of perspectives in a multi-disciplinary and collaborative team setting.
The successful candidate must hold a Ph.D. and/or M.D. degree with a strong background in mouse genetics, blood cell development and disorders, molecular biology, or a related field. The ideal candidate will exhibit independence, flexibility and creativity with a record of scientific productivity. Previous experience in generating and analyzing mouse models, epigenetics, genomic engineering, and/or hematology-oncology is strongly preferred.
To apply please submit CV, a short summary of research interest and experience, and a list of three references to:
