Status of Position: Open

The primary interest of the Raghavan lab is to elucidate how epithelial homeostasis is maintained in development and perturbed in disease states. We use the mammalian skin as a model system to address these questions.

Postdoctoral positions are immediately in the following areas

  1. Role of micro-RNA’s and other small RNA’s in maintenance of epithelial stem cell homeostasis.
  2. Role of RNA binding proteins in maintaining cell-substratum adhesion.

Specific areas of interest include cell biology, signal transduction, molecular biology and protein biochemistry. Applicants should have a Ph.D. with a strong background in cell biology and biochemistry and excellent written and oral communication skills. Experience working with mouse model systems and using retro/lenti viral vectors will be considered favorably.
