The Chuong lab at the University of Colorado Boulder is recruiting passionate scientists at all levels with interests in gene regulation and evolutionary genomics. Our lab is broadly interested in understanding how gene regulatory networks evolve at the molecular level. We combine ‘wet’ and ‘dry’ approaches, synthesizing large-scale analyses of (epi)genomic datasets with functional studies in mammalian cell culture. We are especially interested in deciphering an emerging role for endogenous retroviruses in shaping mammalian regulatory networks in health and disease.
Lab manager/technician: We are looking for 1-2 scientists to help get our wet lab up and running. In addition to standard molecular biology (cloning, PCR, etc.), this position involves cell culture, systematic CRISPR gene editing and screening, and generation of high-throughput sequencing datasets (e.g. ChIP-Seq, ATAC-Seq, GRO-Seq). At least 2 years of molecular biology/biochemistry lab experience required.
Graduate students: Our lab has great training opportunities for both computational and/or experimental biologists. Interested PhD students should apply through the BioFrontiers IQ biology program and/or the Department of Molecular Cellular and Developmental Biology.
Postdocs: We are looking to recruit talented postdocs interested in pushing the boundaries of genome exploration. Opportunities exist for pure experimental/computational positions or a mix of both.
Earliest start date is Summer 2018. For inquiries for positions at all levels (undergrad, technician, lab manager, postdoc, grad student) please e-mail Ed.
