Two Postdoctoral Fellows in Skin BiologyPosted by: China Medical University, Taiwan
Posted date: Aug-29-2018
Location: Taichung, Taiwan; Los Angeles, CA, USA
Academician Cheng-Ming Chuong is the Honorary Director of Integrative Stem Cell Center at the China Medical University (CMU), Taichung, Taiwan. His lab is located at the University of Southern California (USC) in Los Angeles, USA. Two postdoctoral positions are available in his USC/CMU laboratory. Starting time is flexible, but within one year. Position info:
1. Understand molecular basis of regional specificity and epigenetic memory using skin appendages as a model. This is also important after wounding and during regeneration.
Technologies involved: single-cell RNA-seq, spatial transcriptomics, Omni-ATAC, and high order chromatin organization, etc.
Work location: USC.
2. Tissue engineering / wound regeneration using intravital imaging.
Technologies involved: single-cell RNA-seq to characterize endogeneous reprogramming processes, use of lentiviral reporter and induced gene expression to reprogram cell fates and enhance regeneration.
Phase 1: About 6-month training in USC to learn the basics,
Phase 2: Back and forth between USC / CMU, Note CMU Integrative Stem Cell Center has top-down two-photon microscope which allows intravital image of wound regeneration process in living mouse. When travel internationally for work or international meetings, traveling expenses are covered.
