The project utilizes transgenic mice with cell-type specific labeling that allows for advanced sequencing and bioinformatic techniques to examine genome regulation at the single cell-type and single-cell level. These projects also integrate animal behavior, biochemical assessments, and state-of-the-art cytometry and imaging. The lab environments is highly supportive of learning new including techniques for molecular biology, proteomics, epigenetics, and bioinformatics. The ideal candidate will be innovative, collaborative, and highly motivated who can work independently but also with other investigators of varied training experience.
