Postdoctoral position available at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) to study the molecular mechanisms of (1) lung development and regeneration and (2) lung cancer.
We have a long-standing interest in elucidating the molecular mechanisms of lung development, regeneration and disease (including lung cancer). We use the mouse as a model system to answer fundamental questions in lung branching morphogenesis and cell type specification, alveolar formation, the molecular process of lung injury/repair and the pathogenesis of lung cancer development. We combine mouse genetics, cell biology, genomic analysis, proteomics and lung organoids to address these central questions. This knowledge will be applied to studies of human diseases using human lung tissues. Our research program holds the promise of translating discovery from bench to bedside.
Candidates are expected to have a PhD or MD degree and research experience in molecular and cell biology and preferably experience using mouse models.
