  The Munger Lab (mungerlab.com) is seeking a postdoctoral associate to join our growing interdisciplinary team in Bar Harbor, Maine. Our systems genetics research program explores the interface between genetics and the environment, and how complex interactions between the two can push gene regulatory networks that drive normal cell differentiation and organ development to an altered disease state. Specifically, we take advantage of powerful, genetically diverse mouse populations (Diversity Outbred and Collaborative Cross) and stem cell lines to study how genetic variation in the population impacts multiple layers of gene regulation genome-wide, with an emphasis on post-transcriptional processes that modulate protein levels independent from transcript abundance. Postdoctoral associates lead their own projects as well as participate in larger collaborative efforts involving multiple investigators, and given the current uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, postdocs may be expected to work remotely for a significant portion of their time. Consequently, being able to work independently and as part of a (remote) team will be essential to success in this role.    The successful candidate will integrate large genetic and multi-dimensional genomic datasets from bulk tissues down to individual cells to (1) infer the gene regulatory networks responsible for maintaining pluripotency and driving cell fate decisions; (2) identify key components of these systems that are particularly sensitive to genetic variation; and (3) define the genetic basis for cellular heterogeneity in these processes. The postdoc will take advantage of existing methods used by the lab, including quantitative trait locus mapping and mediation analysis, and will also be encouraged to develop novel computational approaches to achieve these goals. Candidates with experience at the bench will have the opportunity to validate their computational predictions with mice or cell lines in our wet lab.   The Munger Lab strives to be an open, collaborative, diverse, and supportive scientific environment, and all members of the lab are expected to do their part to achieve these goals. Dr. Munger is committed to providing post-doctoral associates and graduate students with the interdisciplinary training necessary to be successful independent scientists in the genomic era. Munger Lab members are encouraged to participate in outreach and education opportunities, and to be active citizens in their scientific and local communities.   The Jackson Laboratory (http://www.jax.org) is recognized internationally for its excellence in research, unparalleled mouse resources, outstanding training environment characterized by scientific collaboration, and exceptional core services - all within a spectacular setting adjacent to Acadia National Park.

The Munnamalai Lab (https://www.jax.org/research-and-faculty/research-labs/the-munnamalai-lab) at The Jackson Laboratory is seeking a postdoctoral researcher to study inner ear development. Our group identifies gene networks downstream of signaling pathways that are involved in the patterning and development of the inner ear. The inner ear is part of the peripheral nervous system. It is divided into the vestibular system that regulates balance and motion and the cochlea that regulates hearing. The cochlea has a very complex organization and we are interested in determining how a field of progenitors, under the influence of multiple signaling pathways, becomes a patterned organ with hair cells. The hair cells are mechanosensory cells of the inner ear.   The successful candidate will use molecular biology and genomic approaches to study gene regulation and cell fate determination. Applicants are not required to have experience working with mouse models; however, a strong command of molecular biology techniques is required. The postdoc will learn to use in vitro organotypic cultures, in utero electroporation, and mouse genetics to study signaling and gene regulation. The research projects involve the generation of transgenic mouse lines; generation and maintenance of mouse models of inner ear development; and characterization of molecular and cellular phenotypes of genetic mutants.   The Jackson Laboratory has a world class postdoctoral training program. Trainees are encouraged to develop an independent research program using a broad array of resources and expertise available at JAX (https://www.jax.org/research-and-faculty/tools/scientific-research-services).   Exceptional postdoctoral candidates will have the opportunity to apply to become a JAX Scholar, a selective award addressing the national need for research scientists who are accomplished in the broadly defined fields of genetics and genomics. The award includes an independent research budget, travel funds, and a salary above standard postdoctoral scale (https://www.jax.org/education-and-learning/pre-and-postdoctoral-program/jax-scholars).   Only complete applications will be considered.  Please see submission requirements below.

The Tarchini Lab at The Jackson Laboratory (http://tarchini-lab.org) is seeking a Postdoctoral Associate to complete a team currently composed of two postdocs, one research assistant and rotating students or shorter term trainees. The laboratory focuses on cell polarity mechanisms and their impact on the morphogenesis of sensory “hair” cells in the mouse auditory and vestibular organs, including hearing and balance ability. We are particularly interested in discovering new protein complexes organizing and elongating the stereocilia bundle, the apical hair cell compartment capturing sound or head movements. We are also interested in understanding how these proteins respond to damage, and more generally, to ask whether the molecular machinery assembling the stereocilia bundle during development could be leveraged to regenerate these structures after injury. We are independently funded with two R01 grants from NIH.   The Jackson Laboratory (http://www.jax.org) in Bar Harbor, Maine, USA, is recognized internationally for its excellence in research (e.g., The Nathan Shock Aging Center and Center for Novel Alzheimer’s Disease Models), unparalleled mouse resources, outstanding training environment characterized by scientific collaboration, and exceptional core services - all within a spectacular setting adjacent to Acadia National Park.
