Job DescriptionPostdoctoral position immediately available in the Gruber Laboratory at the Yale University School of Medicine. The Gruber lab (NIH funded through U01) utilizes a multi-disciplinary approach to investigate the molecular and genetic basis of human congenital heart disease. Through deep sequencing (WES and WGS) of both large cohorts and informative families, we have a identified several novel genetic associations that require mechanistic investigation. Recent work (Dev Cell, Stem Cells) has uncovered a series of progenitor cell populations whose single cell transcriptional signal is enriched with damaging mutations identified in human cohorts. Our lab employs mouse modeling, tissue culture, human ES and iPSC targeting, biochemical assays, and a variety of informatic approaches to understand the mechanisms that guide tissue movements in the developing heart. The applicant should be highly motivated with an MD, PhD, or MD/PhD and be prepared to perform self-directed research in a close-knit laboratory environment at Yale University. Prior experience in molecular biological techniques, mouse modeling, and R is preferred
PhD or MD/PhD
Experience in mouse modeling and colony management is preferred.
