Ideal candidates will have recently obtained their Ph.D or M.D./Ph.D degrees in the field of Regenerative Biology, Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Ophthalmology or an equivalent field. In addition, we welcome applications from diverse backgrounds and encourage candidates with expertise in signal transduction, immunology, or genetics to apply. The project will require mastery of state-of-the-art molecular, cellular, and imaging techniques, including CRISPR/Cas-based knock in gene targeting. Candidates should have prior experience with targeted transgenesis. The successful applicant should be self-motivated with a proven record of independent research. Project leaders will be given the opportunity to participate in ongoing related research in the lab and to develop their own independent research program.
