Postdoctoral Fellow Positions Available (Jan-2022)

Project Description: We have recently developed Seq-Scope, a new ultra-high-resolution spatial single cell technology (PMID: 34115981). Our team currently focuses on furthering and expanding the technology’s applicability into addressing important biomedical problems. These include (1) improving the throughput of the technique so that maximum transcriptome information could be obtained from a tissue section, (2) expanding the functional applications into spatial proteome, signalome, genome, epigenome, metabolome and microbiome, (3) working in a collaboratory setting to apply Seq-Scope for various spatial omics projects. In addition to Seq-Scope, we use a variety of tools, including animal models such as mouse and Drosophila, in vitro systems such as cell culture and enzymatic assays, and bioinformatic tools for analyzing transcriptome-level information. The successful applicant is expected to design and perform research and regularly interact with the PI and other researchers in the Department of Molecular & Integrative Physiology and the Institute of Gerontology of the University of Michigan.

Required Qualifications: In addition to a Ph.D., successful candidates are expected to have extensive experience in molecular, genetic, biochemical, cell biological, physiological and/or bioinformatic techniques. A record of publications commensurate with the level of training will be also expected. The applicant should have been fully dedicated to biomedical research and have a strong desire to make a major contribution. We expect that, after 3-5 years of training, the postdoctoral trainee will be highly successful with multiple publications and secure a permanent position in academia, industry or the government. Promoting trainee career development and success is one of the top priorities of our group. Salary and benefits will be commensurate with the candidate's experience and accomplishments.
