The Korstanje Lab at The Jackson Laboratory (www.jax.org/korstanje-lab) is seeking a postdoctoral researcher in molecular kidney genetics. Our group identifies novel genes involved in various forms of kidney disease and subsequently develops models to study the role of these genes in the kidney.
The postdoctoral associate will be working on projects using in vitro cell culture and mouse models to study renal function and related diseases. The research projects involve the generation of transgenic cell lines using the CRISPR Cas9 system, generation and maintenance of mouse models of kidney diseases, characterization of molecular and cellular phenotypes of cultured cells and various animal models, and testing pharmacological agents on kidney disease models.
The postdoctoral fellow will receive training in skills for performing lab research, developing an independent research program, and writing scientific research articles and proposals.
Candidates must have excellent research skills in molecular and cell biology and be interested in developing new research techniques and ideas.
