Post-doctoral Position (Developmental and Stem Cell Biology)

A full-time postdoctoral position is available immediately to study how cellular organization and tissue forces regulate epithelial stem cells. This is an NIH-funded project, and the candidate will have the opportunity to spearhead a multidisciplinary and collaborative research that combines mouse genetics, live imaging, biomechanical approaches, and single cell technology to investigate the tissue mechanical and epigenetic regulation of adult stem cells, using the mouse tooth epithelium as a model system.

Candidates should have a strong background in stem cell or developmental biology, molecular biology, and microscopy. Experience with imaging analyses using imageJ, Imaris, or Napari is a plus. Salary is commensurate with NIH guidelines and based on the postdoctoral scholar’s experience level. The candidate will have access to the rich resources for biological research at UCLA and be a part of the vibrant stem cell community on campus. Potential for career development is very high.

To apply, please email your (1) CV, (2) a brief statement of research interests (no more than a page), and (3) the names and email addresses of three references to:
