University of Pennsylvania Recruiting Postdoctoral Fellow

Scholarship:  Fully-funded
Degree:   PhD
Nationality: International Students
Location: USA
Application deadlines: Open

Scholarship Description:

We are looking for an exceptionally creative and self-motivated postdoctoral fellow to join us in developing new technologies for spatial omics profiling at the cellular level. The successful candidate will collaborate with internal and external groups to solve challenging biological problems. The work will be multi-disciplinary, combining microchip, microscopy, genomics, and computational analysis to profile genome, epigenome, transcriptome, and proteome within the spatial context of tissues and cells. These novel technologies will greatly improve our ability to study tissue complexity and reveal the salient features of tissue architecture in physiology and disease.
