Molecular Biologist Position Opening

RIKEN Brain Science Institute

The Laboratory for Genetic Control of Neuronal Architecture (Moore; RIKEN Brain Science Institute, Tokyo, Japan) is recruiting a skilled molecular biologist. The candidate will develop novel single cell profiling technologies, and apply them to study neuronal development. Additional neuronal development studies will also be carried out. The single cell profiling technology development part of this project will be carried out in close collaboration with the Genomics Miniaturization Technology Unit (Plessy; RIKEN Center for Life Science Technologies, Yokohama, Japan).

A demonstrated record of technical and intellectual molecular biology excellence is the primary criterion for this position. The candidate is expected to play a leading role in a collaborative team, and a proven ability to function effectively in a team will be also considered in the selection process. Interested postdoctoral researchers are encouraged to send an email containing 1) a curriculum vitae including publications and names of three references, 2) a short description of skills and experience to Adrian Moore ( Working level English is required. Japanese language skills are not a requirement.

Postdoc position. Heart development

University of North Carolina. Conton Lab.

Fully funded postdoctoral positions are presently available in the Conlon Lab whose studies focus on identifying the molecular networks that are essential for early heart development and how alterations in these networks lead to congenital heart disease. For these studies, we use a highly integrated approach that incorporates developmental, genetic, proteomic, biochemical and molecular based studies in mouse, Xenopus and stem cells. Recent advances and projects of interest in the Conlon lab include studies that define the cellular and molecular events that lead to cardiac septation, those that explore cardiac interaction networks as determinants of transcriptional specificity, the mechanism and function of cardiac transcriptional repression networks and, the regulatory networks of cardiac morphogenesis.

Job Requirements: Candidates should have recently obtained or be about to obtain a Ph.D. or M.D. in a field of biological science and should have a strong publication record. Outstanding and highly motivated candidates should apply by email to Dr. Frank L. Conlon and include a CV/resume, three references and description of your specific interest in our research programs.
