Postdoctoral Fellowship (Ismagilov and Guttman labs)

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral position in the Ismagilov group at the California Institute of Technology.  Appointees will work on an NIH funded collaborative project between the Ismagilov and Guttman labs to study the 3-dimensional structure of nuclei in single cells across time using a combination of microfluidic technologies and molecular biology techniques. The appointee will develop methods to comprehensively map DNA-DNA, DNA-RNA, and RNA-RNA interactions within the nucleus, as well as help implement those methods in microfluidic devices for the study of single cells.   Required skills include: molecular biology and biochemistry and familiarity with sequencing and bioinformatics. Applicants must have demonstrated a published record of  creativity, depth, and accomplishment.  Experience with single cell methodologies and associated challenges is considered a plus. Candidates should send to a CV and a brief statement of research interests
