Job Title: Post-doc in developmental and evolutionary biology at the University of Pen
Job Number: 65004
Location: Philadelphia, US
The Kamberov Lab at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine in Philadelphia, USA is recruiting to fill a post-doctoral position in human developmental and evolutionary biology.
Human skin harbors some of the most striking and physiologically important evolutionary adaptations of our species. Among these are adaptive changes to the distribution and density of sweat glands that populate human skin and are the bedrock of the human thermoregulatory system. A major focus of research in the Kamberov lab is to identify the genetic and cellular drivers of sweat gland formation and patterning, to discover how and when these were modified to generate adaptive changes on the human lineage, and to apply this knowledge in the development of therapeutic strategies to regenerate sweat glands for wound repair.
The lab is currently recruiting to fill a post-doctoral position in this space. Interested applicants should send a CV, contact information of references and a letter detailing your interest in the position to Yana Kamberov. Applicants should hold a Ph.D. in biology or a related field. Applicants with a background in developmental biology, model system genetics (especially mouse), regenerative biology, or evolutionary genetics/genomics are especially encouraged to apply.
