Open Positions

Two postdoc positions are available in 3D genome engineering and neurodegenerative disease as of March 1, 2017.

The Cremins Lab in the Department of Bioengineering and the Epigenetics Program at the University of Pennsylvania is recruiting two postdoctoral research fellows with expertise in molecular biology and/or genomics. Projects available involve the integration of 3D genome engineering with high-resolution chromatin architecture analysis. Candidates will be part of an enthusiastic interdisciplinary team focused on analyzing 3-D organization of epigenomes in the developing mammalian central nervous system using genomics technologies and high-throughput sequencing. The laboratory space is located in Penn’s Department of Bioengineering and laboratory members have will have extensive involvement in the Epigenetics Program in Penn’s School of Medicine, thus providing a rich multi-disciplinary training environment in molecular biology, genomics, epigenetics, stem cells, bioinformatics and biostatistics.

Candidates are required to hold a PhD, MD, or both. Expertise in cell and molecular biology is required, including, but not limited to, cloning, qRT-PCR, virus packaging, mammalian cell transduction, chromatin immunoprecipitation, chromosome-conformation-capture, etc. Preference will be given to candidates with experience generating data sets for high-throughput sequencing and genomics analysis. Although these positions are for a wet-lab experimental scientist, candidates with some level of experience analyzing genome-wide epigenetic data sets will be considered favorably.

Applicants should submit a CV, a statement of research interests, and 3 or more references to jcremins@seas.upenn.edu.
