Post-doctoral research fellow or post-doctoral associate in genetics at Yale University, School of Medicine, New Haven, CT

Scholarship: Fully funded
Degree: Ph.D
Nationality: International Students
Location: USA
Application deadlines: Open

Scholarship Description:

The Lek Laboratory is located in the Department of Genetics at Yale University. Our lab studies all aspects of rare disease genetics: (1) novel gene discovery in large cohorts (2) development of methods to analyse genomic data (3) study of genetic disease mechanisms (4) design and translation of genetic therapies. We are a young and growing laboratory seeking candidates who are self-motivated, independent, quick learners with a team-first attitude.

You will be responsible for leading projects involving gene editing of muscle disease genes in patient cells and relevant mouse models. This will involve the design of gene correction and delivery strategies using a range of cell biology, molecular biology and muscle tissue histology approaches. You will be required to communicate results to collaborators and manage correspondence. Finally, you will be expected to mentor junior scientists and contribute to team projects.
