We are seeking highly motivated postdoctoral fellows who are interested in developing and applying novel molecular technologies to systematically reverse-engineer cellular processes through rapid and precise perturbations (Hsu Cell 2014). We recently described the discovery and the development of new CRISPR systems for transcriptome engineering (Konermann Cell 2018, Zhang Cell 2018). This position is part of an R01-funded team to develop RNA-targeting CRISPR technologies to understand and control dynamic cell states, enable new modes of functional genomics, and develop synthetic biology solutions for cell therapy.Candidates should have a Ph.D. or M.D. degree and experience in molecular/cellular biology and genomics. Biological background or interest in neurobiology or immunology preferred.Please submit your CV, statement of research interests and experience, and references to Dr. Patrick Hsu (firstname.lastname@example.org )
