The laboratory of Christina Theodoris, MD, PhD, is seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow with background in experimental genomics and gene regulatory networks to join her research program in the Gladstone Institute of Cardiovascular Disease and Gladstone Institute of Data Science and Biotechnology. Our lab is focused on leveraging cutting-edge experimental genomics and machine learning to map the gene networks driving cardiovascular disease and develop network-correcting therapies.Â
The successful applicant will have the unique opportunity to work in a highly collaborative environment with experimental and computational biologists, synergizing the strengths of both domains to advance discoveries in gene regulation, network inference, and cardiovascular development and disease. The postdoctoral fellow will develop their own research questions and have opportunities for methods development and advancement of computational skills. The postdoctoral fellow will also have opportunities for career development including writing grant applications and manuscripts and presenting their work at conferences. Overall, the fellow will join a highly collaborative team united in the common goal of impacting the lives of patients with cardiovascular disease.
PhD and/or MD with experience in experimental genomics such as single cell transcriptomics, chromatin accessibility, and/or multiomics technologies; genome occupancy techniques (e.g. ChIP-seq); and/or 3D chromatin conformation techniques
Bioinformatics experience including analysis of genomics datasets using Python, Bash, R, or equivalent would be beneficial
Experience with induced pluripotent stem cell-based model systems and/or cardiovascular-relevant cell culture/functional profiling would be beneficial
Required Application Materials:Â
