The Department of Pediatrics, Section of Developmental Biology at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus invites applications for tenure track faculty positions (Assistant/Associate/Full) in the areas of stem cell biology, development, and regeneration. Areas of particular research interest include but are not limited to 1) gene regulatory networks and systems biology, 2) iPSC and organoid models of development, developmental disorders, and regeneration, 3) maternal health and development 4) animal models of stem cell biology and organogenesis, and 5) tissue reprogramming and remodeling. Current research emphases in the section are cell fate specification, tissue and organ morphogenesis, cardiovascular lineage formation, neuro-glial biology, and organoid models of development and disease. We seek a new colleague with a visionary research program that synergizes with existing section research and brings new ideas and research directions. We provide state-of-the-art facilities within our section and on the CU Anschutz Medical Campus and a vibrant, highly supportive, collaborative and interactive community.
We seek a highly motivated, enthusiastic, curious, organized, detail-oriented, and considerate person to become a full-time professional research assistant (PRA) in the Santoro lab, which is part of the Section of Developmental Biology within the Department of Pediatrics. We use mice to investigate how the mammalian olfactory system develops and how it changes based on an individual’s experience, with a long-term goal of better understanding human olfactory function and dysfunction. Current projects in the lab focus on how the life-long birth and survival of olfactory sensory neurons are regulated, and the roles of these processes in experience-dependent adaptation. It is anticipated that the successful candidate will spend approximately 2/3 of their time working as part of a team to experimentally investigate these questions and present and publish their findings, and 1/3 managing the lab’s mouse colony and other aspects of the lab. Experimental approaches to be learned and performed may include mouse genotyping, bulk and single-cell RNA sequencing, lineage tracing, RNA fluorescent in situ hybridization, immunohistochemistry, quantitative PCR, and quantitative microscopy. New experimental approaches may also be developed as part of this position.
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.
