Postdoctoral Researcher to Develop Novel Single-Cell Genomics Technologies and Applications (Pachter Lab)

The Pachter Lab at Caltech is seeking a postdoctoral researcher to develop novel single-cell genomics technologies and applications. The postdoctoral researcher will interact on projects with other members of the Pachter Lab (http://pachterlab/github.io/group/) and will collaborate with other labs at Caltech. Specifically, the Pachter lab has been developing and deploying low-cost, high-throughput applications of single-cell RNA-sequencing including sample multiplexing, multi-modal scRNA-seq, and targeted sequencing. These are being applied to answer fundamental questions in neuroscience and cancer.

Preferred candidates will have a broad background in protein/nucleic acid biochemistry, fluorescence microscopy, flow cytometry genomics, microfluidics, bioinformatics experience, and demonstrate an interest in developing novel experimental systems. Candidates should send Curriculum Vitae, list of publications, a brief statement of research interests, and names and contact details for three references, to lsledd@caltech.edu.

We are an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to age, race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, or national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.

COVID-19 Vaccine Requirement
Caltech has implemented a mandatory vaccination policy effective October 15, 2021, requiring COVID-19 vaccinations for all employees (with Institute-approved exemptions for religious or medical contraindications only). At present, an individual is deemed "fully vaccinated" when that person has received, at least 14 days prior, either the second dose in a two-dose COVID-19 vaccine series (e.g., Pfizer or Moderna) or a single-dose COVID-19 vaccine (e.g., Johnson & Johnson). Upon eligibility, employees are required to receive the COVID-19 booster as part of the vaccine mandate. As a condition of employment, employees must submit official COVID-19 vaccine documentation.
