Graduate Student Positions:
Our lab is accepting rotation students. Please contact Yana to set up a time to meet.
Mammary gland biology and evolution
We are seeking a post-doc to lead a project on the developmental and evolutionary significance of positively selected human variants affecting gene expression in mammary tissues. Experimental approaches to be used include analysis and validation of large-scale transcriptomic data from the skin, and the generation and analysis of genetically modified mice.
Skin appendage development and regeneration
We are seeking a post-doc to lead a project in the field of skin development and regeneration. The relevant project will investigate genetic networks controlling the development, patterning, and evolutionary variation of eccrine sweat glands, which are essential for thermoregulation in humans. A long-term goal of this project is to apply these findings to the regeneration of sweat glands in vitro. Experimental approaches to be used include analysis and validation of large-scale transcriptomic data from the skin, functional testing and modeling in mice and in vitro organoid culture.
Interested applicants should send a CV, contact information of three references and a letter detailing your interest in the position to Yana Kamberov. Applicants should hold a Ph.D. in biology or related field. Applicants with a background in mouse genetics, developmental and evolutionary genetics are especially encouraged to apply.
Research Specialist A/B Position:
Application materials and any questions regarding the position should be sent to Yana.
