We are looking for a bright, enthusiastic, organized, kind, and detail-oriented person to become a full-time professional research assistant in Dr. Stephen Santoro’s lab. The person who is offered this position will work as part of a team to investigate how the mammalian olfactory system develops and changes based on an individual’s experience, with the ultimate goal of better understanding human olfactory function and dysfunction. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to work on established projects and to develop new ones. Experimental approaches used in our research include RNA sequencing, lineage tracing, RNA fluorescent in situ hybridization, immunohistochemistry, quantitative PCR, translating ribosome affinity purification, and mouse gene manipulation. We also develop new experimental approaches.
The Developmental Biology Post-Doctoral Program intends to attract research-driven scientists from across the world and encourages those who want to pursue an academic scientific research to apply. This position reports directly to the Faculty in the Department of Pediatrics, Section of Developmental Biology. The research focus of the Section is to discover knowledge related to embryonic development, with a particular emphasis on development of the body axis, limbs, craniofacial structures, the cardiovascular system, the digestive system, the central nervous system and the meninges. This full-time position for a junior level PhD post-doctoral researcher will provide a mechanism for the hired individual to develop into a successful independent researcher in the field of developmental biology. Postdoc trainees are provided with a salary support in accordance with the NIH pay scale and a full benefits package from the University of Colorado. Successful applicants will be appointed as Gates Fellows with initial appointments made for one year and continued support contingent on satisfactory progress. The proposed training will be conducted at University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus.
We are looking for candidates with experience in developmental biology, neuroscience, or immunology, to join our team as we work to understand how dysregulated interferon signaling contributes to the pathophysiology of Down syndrome. We employ an integrated approach including functional genomics, mechanistic studies, and animal research, to make biological discoveries with clear translational potential. This is an NIH-funded position.
