Laboratory investigates genetic variation effects on gene regulation using a various functional genomic toolbox. Standard molecular, cell biological and biochemical analyses used. Bioinformatics skills are needed. Procedures are performed in cell culture, cell isolation, viral transduction, single cell genomics, RNA-seq, Hi-C, and ATAC-seq.
The individual will investigate (1) cell-type specific gene regulatory architecture, and (2) how cell-type specific gene regulation is associated with psychiatric disorders. The individual will work on single cell genomics and mouse viral transduction to prepare genomic libraries. The individual will analyze the data using bioinformatic skills.
Education and Experience:
Postdoctoral experience in the field of investigation (e.g. neuroscience, genetics, genomics) is expected. Bioinformatics skills are advantageous. Publications in the field of investigation is also expected.
