Experimental and Computational Biology Positions in Stem Cell Epigenomics

Postdoctoral and Research Assistant Positions are available in the laboratory of Dr. Benjamin Kidder at Wayne State University in the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute, an NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center. Our lab focuses on epigenetic mechanisms of stem cell fate, genome stability, and reprogramming/transdifferentiation, using experimental, genomics, and bioinformatics approaches. We integrate functional studies and computational analysis of epigenomic and transcriptomic data. More information can be found on our website:

Experimental biologists with broad expertise in stem cell or cancer biology, mammalian tissue culture, next-generation sequencing, molecular biology, biochemistry, mouse models, bioinformatics or an equivalent field are encouraged to apply.
