Job DescriptionA NIH funded postdoc position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Chen Chen at Michigan State University. The Chen lab studies the molecular mechanisms underlying germ cell biology using molecular, biochemical, genomic and proteomic approaches as well as CRISPR/Cas9 knockout mouse models. The lab is broadly interested in genes and pathways influencing genome defense, germline stem cell, spermatogenesis and fertility. Current projects focus on small non-coding RNA pathways in genome regulation and signal transduction in germ cells. Recent publications: Ding D et al. Nature Communications 2017; Ding D et al. Nature Communications 2018; Ding D et al. Nucleic Acids Research 2018.
The successful candidate should hold a recent Ph.D. in biological sciences with a research background in cell and molecular biology, biochemistry, developmental biology, or genetics and genomics. Preference will be given to applicants with strong research experience in one or more areas in cell and molecular biology, biochemistry, RNA biology, piRNAs and miRNAs, vesicle trafficking, membrane protein, or knockout mouse models.
