The Department of Bioengineering and Therapeutic Sciences at the University of California, San Francisco is offering a postdoctoral position in functional genomics with the Ahituv Lab. The lab uses genomic technologies (RNA-seq, ChIP-seq, ATAC-seq and others) to identify gene regulatory elements and link them to various phenotypes, including human disease and morphological differences between species. In addition, it is developing massively parallel reporter assays (MPRAs) and CRISPR-based screens to functionally characterize thousands of gene regulatory elements in a high-throughput manner as part of the ENCODE project.

Candidates must have an advanced degree in biology or a related area. Preference will be given to individuals who have a mouse genetic background though this is not a necessity. UC San Francisco strongly encourages applications from those candidates who can contribute to our commitment to diversity and excellence.The University of California is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, age or protected veteran status.
