Postdoctoral position in single-cell lineage tracing and cell fate reprogramming

The Morris Lab is a Stem Cell and Developmental Biology lab located in the Departments of Developmental Biology, Genetics, and Center of Regenerative Medicine at the Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, USA. We are developing novel experimental and computational genomic technologies┬áto enable the simultaneous mapping of lineage and identity during development and reprogramming (See Biddy et al., Nature, 2018; Guo et al., Genome Biology, 2019, Kong et al., Nature Protocols, 2020). Our central aim is to dissect the molecular regulation of cellular identity and to apply this knowledge to engineer clinically-relevant cell types. We seek highly motivated trainees to join our interdisciplinary and collaborative team focused on single-cell assay development and its application to engineering cell identity, in addition to several developmental and in vitro differentiation systems. This position will be funded with a competitive salary. The lab is supported by grants from the National Institutes of Health, The Paul G. Allen Frontiers Group, the New York Stem Cell Foundation, Sloan Foundation, Vallee Foundation, and Children’s Discovery Institute. At the time of appointment, candidates must hold an advanced degree (e.g. Ph.D.).

To apply, please send a curriculum vitae and cover letter, which includes: a brief statement of interest; qualifications; the names of three professional referees to Dr. Morris at
