The Hormoz Lab at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Harvard Medical School seeks highly motivated and dedicated postdoctoral fellows. The Hormoz Lab uses systems and synthetic biology to understand cellular state transitions during development, directed differentiation, and in disease. We also develop technologies to measure molecular states of individual cells with high throughput. For example, we have recently engineered mice with molecular recorders that write each cell's lineage history in its own genome.
We seek both theorists and experimentalists. If you have a background in machine learning, statistics, or physics and have a desire to learn biology, you would be a great candidate. Similarly, experimental biologists who are interested in learning quantitative skills and technology development are encouraged to apply. We particularly seek candidates who are interested in developmental biology and directed differentiation for medical applications, such as making blood stem cells in a dish. Related projects include recording and read out of lineage histories of individual stem cells in mice and that of cancer cells in patients. Successful candidates should have strong communication skills and be able to work independently and collaboratively on scientific and engineering problems and deliver solutions.

The Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania.- Postdoctoral positions available in Heller Laboratory of Neuroepigenetics
The Heller Lab studies the mechanisms by which epigenetic remodeling regulates gene function, 
in the context of neuropsychiatric diseases such as addiction and depression. To approach this problem, we directly manipulate histone and DNA modifications at specific genes in vivo, using viral delivery of novel epigenetic editing tools, such as CRISPR/dCas9-fusion proteins. This ‘bottom-up’ approach allows direct elucidation of the causal relevance of epigenetic remodeling in the brain. Because addiction and depression persist long after cessation of the harmful experience, epigenetic remodeling is an attractive underlying mechanism and presents an intriguing target for therapeutic intervention. For further information see http://www.med.upenn.edu/hellerlab/.
The Heller Lab has recently received funding to explore epigenetic regulation of SynGAP1. SynGAP1 codes for a synaptic protein required for proper development and synaptic function. 
Human mutations in SynGAP1 lead to pervasive developmental delay and epilepsy. However, there is little known about the regulatory mechanisms underlying its expression. The Heller Lab will pursue this new line of investigation with the hiring of a dedicated postdoctoral fellow.
There are currently 2 postdoctoral positions available. PhD, MD or MD/PhD required. Expertise in bioinformatics (including mathematics and computational biology), animal behavior, stereotaxic surgery, molecular biology, protein biochemistry, and chromatin biology are encouraged but not required.
Please send your application to eheller@mail.med.upenn.edu.

• CV with a list of publications
• a short summary of your present and future research interests

We have developed several ligands targeting bladder cancer cells and cancer stem cells. Nanoparticles coated with these cancer-targeting ligands can potentially be used for diagnosis, imaging and targeted therapy of cancer, and potentiate immunotherapy. Other projects in the lab include development of targeted therapy using patient-derived cancer models, identification and molecular dissection of chemoresistance and cancer in vivo imaging. The applicant must have a Ph.D. and/or M.D. in immunology, molecular biology, biochemistry, or related field, and experience in molecular and cell biology including cell culture and animal models.
The candidate must be a US citizen.
