Post-doc position at the University of Pennsylvania / development & regeneration


Postdoctoral position in skin appendage development and regeneration – Departments of Genetics and Dermatology, Perelman School of Medicine of the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA USA

The Kamberov lab is seeking a candidate to fill a post-doctoral position in skin appendage development and regeneration. The relevant project will focus on investigating the signaling networks that control mammary and sweat gland development, functionality and evolutionary variation. A major goal of this project is to regenerate these organs in vitro. Experimental approaches to be used include generation, analysis and validation of large-scale transcriptomic data from the skin, functional testing and modeling in mice and in vitro organoid culture. The position provides an exciting opportunity to work at the interface of basic and translational research in a highly collaborative environment and gain experience in approaches at the cutting edge of developmental and regenerative biology.

Interested applicants should send a CV, contact information of three references and a letter detailing your interest in the position and lab to Yana Kamberov (yana2@pennmedicine.upenn.edu). Applicants should hold a Ph.D. in biology or related field. Applicants with a strong background in molecular biology, mouse genetics, developmental biology and/or bioinformatics are encouraged to apply.
