Job Description

Postdoctoral Associate | Molecular Biology

Hinson Lab

Farmington, CT

The Hinson lab is seeking an independent, highly motivated PhD-level scientist (<2 years postdoc experience) to join our somatic cell genome-editing (SCGE) program funded by NIH U01 EB028898. The overarching goal of this project is to develop “one-and-done” genome editing therapeutics for inherited forms of heart failure, a condition with high morbidity and mortality. The ideal candidate would have a strong background in cell and molecular biology as well as next-generation sequencing methods and analyses. As part of the SCGE consortium, this talented individual would have access to a world-class consortium of experts in genome editing, delivery systems, and microphysiological human tissue and organoid models. 


The Hinson lab at the Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine and UConn Health studies human cardiovascular disorders especially heart failure using a combination of approaches including genome editing, pluripotent stem cell technology, genomics assays, and tissue engineering. 

QUALIFICATIONS

  • Ph.D. in cell biology, molecular biology, genetics, or related field of study.
  • Prior research experience in at least two of the following areas: pluripotent stem cell biology and differentiation, cellular physiology, next-generation genome sequencing assays especially single cell transcriptomics, and tissue engineering.
  • Experience in single cell technologies for transcriptomics, flow cytometry (or other forms of cytometric analyses), cellular histology and confocal microscopy especially live-cell imaging is particularly desirable.
  • Candidates should have a publication record in peer-reviewed journals.
  • Excellent writing and communication skills, able to work independently and effectively with other members in a productive team.
  • Experience with R, Python or similar statistical package is helpful, as well as experience with clustering, pathway, genetic and genomic data analyses and bioinformatics.

**Please submit your current CV, at least 2 letters of reference, and 1-page (maximum) statement of Research Interests and Career Goals at time of application. **

       

We are a diverse and inclusive research group, aspiring to produce top science and scientists through attentive and progressive mentoring and interdisciplinary teamwork.
