Job Description: A new group studying stem cell homeostasis in gut development and disease invites applications for postdoctoral fellows at The Hospital for Sick Children / University of Toronto (http://www.sickkids.ca/AboutSickKids/Directory/People/K/tae-hee-kim.html). Our group investigates signaling and transcriptional mechanisms of stomach and intestinal stem cells by applying mouse genetics, stem cell and organoid cultures, and epigenomic analyses. Candidates should have a PhD, MD, or equivalent degree, good communication skills, and should be self-motivated, with a clear career goal. Research experience in mouse genetics, stem cell research, and/or epigenomic analyses is desirable but not required.
Work environment: Toronto is one of the most culturally diverse and livable cities in the world, providing access to many excellent museums, authentic international cuisines, and great schools. Located in our new 21-storey state-of-the-art research facility in the Discovery District of downtown Toronto, a unique, resource rich environment that includes seven hospital-based research institutes and the University of Toronto, we are well positioned to pursue creative and highly collaborative research programs, particularly in the fields of developmental and stem cell biology.
Application Requirements: Please send a cover letter, CV, and contact information for three references as a single PDF file to Tae-Hee Kim at firstname.lastname@example.org.
