Postdoctoral position available at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) to study the molecular mechanisms of (1) lung development and repair/regeneration and (2) lung cancer.
We have a long-standing interest in elucidating the molecular mechanisms of lung development, repair/regeneration, and tumorigenesis. These studies aim to establish the foundation for treating human diseases such as chronic obstructive lung disease (COPD) and lung cancer. To this end, we use the mouse as a model system and also take advantage of normal and diseased human lung tissues. We combine mouse genetics, cell biology, genomic analysis, CRISPR technology, proteomics, and lung organoids to address central questions in alveolar formation and repair, and the pathogenesis of lung cancer development. Our research program holds the promise of translating discovery from bench to bedside.
Candidates are expected to have a PhD or MD degree and research experience in molecular and cell biology and preferably experience using mouse models.
