Postdoctoral Fellow:

An opening for a postdoctoral fellowship position is available in the Gersbach Lab at Duke University, Pratt School of Engineering, Department of Biomedical Engineering (http://gersbach.bme.duke.edu). Your main responsibilities will include designing and performing experimental studies to understand the role of the epigenome and non-coding genome in facilitating cellular response to microenvironmental cues, including biomaterials, mechanical properties, cell-cell interactions, and three-dimensional context. This will include developing in vitro systems to study these phenomena, epigenetic profiling of chromatin states and gene expression, and CRISPR-based screens to find perturbations necessary and sufficient for mediating cellular functions, as well as connecting regulatory elements to target genes. You are expected to manage projects and laboratory staff, contribute to grant writing and reporting, publish research findings in peer-reviewed journals, engage in existing and new collaborations within and outside Duke University, and assist with training of undergraduate and graduate students. It is expected that you will also be involved in collaborating on other ongoing projects.
