Post doctoral position studying senescence in development and regeneration


A position for a Postdoctoral Fellow is available in the lab of Bill Keyes. The lab studies the processes of cellular senescence in development, regeneration and cancer. Previously, the group discovered roles for cellular senescence during embryonic development, and instructing cell plasticity and stemness in tissue regeneration and cancer. We are seeking a postdoctoral candidate to continue and develop these projects. As such, preference will be given to candidates with a proven record in developmental biology or with animal models of regeneration. These projects will involve the use of tissue culture and animal models coupled with high-throughput genomic analysis and molecular biology approaches. 


For further information on the project and the work from the lab in general, see recent publications: Keyes et al, Cell Stem Cell, 2011, 8(2) 164-176; Doles et al, Genes & Development, 2012 26(19): 2144-53; Storer et al, Cell, 155(5), 1119–1130; Ritschka et al, Genes & Development, 2017 31(2):172-183


Ph.D or M.D./Ph.D. (already obtained or soon-to-be), with at least one first author publication.
Highly motivated person with strong interest in science research
Interactive person, with ability to work independently
Good communication skills, and fluency in English is required.
Previous experience in developmental biology will be heavily favored. Experience in molecular biology is desirable.
