The Bauer lab at Boston Children's Hospital is looking for candidates excited about computational challenges in CRISPR genome editing, chromatin biology and single-cell analysis. The Bauer lab develops and applies functional genomics methods to investigate gene regulatory mechanisms and networks that contribute to health and disease and to develop innovative therapeutics. The lab has identified favorable targets for therapeutic genome editing for the b-hemoglobinopathies, now being investigated in clinical trials; elucidated molecular mechanisms of hemoglobin switching; advanced high-throughput gene editing approaches to associate genetic variants with phenotypes; and developed methods for highly efficient and specific gene editing in human hematopoietic stem cells.
