Postdoctoral Position in Cardiac Development
Children's National Research Institute
An NIH-funded postdoctoral fellow position is available to study the mechanisms underlying gene-environment interactions leading to Congenital Heart Defects. Many non-syndromic structural birth defects have complex causes where genetic and environmental factors interact to cause disease. To reduce risks, it is critical to understand how these interactions affect embryonic development. The Zohn laboratory has established a new mouse model to study the mechanisms underlying gene-environment interactions and congenital heart defects. This project aims to achieve two objectives: 1) to determine how gene-environment converges on cardiac progenitors to cause CHDs and 2) to elucidate how diverse genetic mutations interact differently with environmental factors. To address these questions, the project will utilize sophisticated mouse genetics, gene expression, bioinformatic and phenotypic analysis. While previous experience with these approaches is appreciated, it is unnecessary as my laboratory is equipped with the relevant expertise and can provide training to the suitable candidate. As a mentor, I aim to assist my trainees in their intellectual and professional growth and enable them to achieve their desired career objectives.

The Children's National Research Institute is part of the Children's National Hospital and aims to improve children's health through research and innovation. The laboratory is located at the historic Walter Reed Campus in Washington, D.C., near the NIH, FDA, and local universities.

Postdoctoral and postbac opportunities in the Chitnis lab at NIH to study Self-organization of Development using the zebrafish lateral line primordium as a model system
NICHD -NIH
We use a combination of genetic, molecular cellular and computational approaches coupled with image analysis to study self-organization of cell fate, morphogenesis and collective migration in development using the lateral line primordium as a model system. Experience and/or interest in using zebrafish, computational modeling, state of the art microscopy and image analysis would be welcome. Current studies explore how cell signaling and mechanics work together to determine the dynamics of cell shape, movement and behavior at multiple scales. We integrate what has been learnt through genetic, molecular and physical manipulation of the primordium to build computational models of the primordium and use simulations based on these models to develop testable hypotheses that become the motivations for our experiments. Interested candidates are welcome to directly contact Ajay Chitnis at chitnisa@nih.gov . A staff scientist position will also soon be advertised within a month.

Postdoctoral and postbaccalaureate positions (Limb patterning and morphogenesis)
National Cancer Institute, National Institutes of Health
The Mackem lab is recruiting for fully funded post-doc and post-bac positions in developmental morphogenesis to study the role of Shh and downstream signaling centers in vertebrate limb patterning (formation of different digit types and adaptations), using molecular-genetic and genomic approaches.

Our long-term focus is on understanding how regulatory networks instruct the formation of structures with distinct shapes, such as the varying bony segments and joint numbers in different digits arising from the same tissues/cell types, and consequently aren't based in cell fate changes.

Current interests include genome-wide approaches to identify key Shh relay signals and their relation to late signaling centers, comparative evolutionary analyses to reveal regulatory mechanisms underlying morphology-based adaptations, and combined genetic/genomic strategies to explore the dynamic nature and robustness of Shh-producing cells, which we think arise from a renewing progenitor population in the limb.

Applicants should have a strong background in developmental and/or evo-devo biology, and prior experience with cutting-edge genomic approaches is desirable. For more information, please contact Susan Mackem (mackems@mail.nih.gov) directly.

Postdoc: Decoding Developmental Signaling with Optogenetics in Zebrafish
National Institute of Child Health and Human Development
The Unit on Developmental Signaling (UDS) seeks candidates for a postdoc position at the NIH campus in Bethesda, MD, near Washington, D.C. The postdoc will investigate fundamental questions in developmental biology using cutting-edge molecular optogenetics and quantitative imaging approaches.

The UDS was established July 2021 at the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Childhood Health and Human Development (NICHD). We seek to understand how embryonic cells decode signaling to create the diverse cell types needed in healthy adults. We use zebrafish embryos as a vertebrate research model to study in vivo how cells respond to signaling levels, dynamics, and combinations. Toward this goal, we develop molecular optogenetics tools that allow us to manipulate biological processes, including signaling, using light. We apply these tools to the microscopy-friendly zebrafish embryo to investigate fundamental principles guiding embryogenesis. For more information see https://kwrogers-lab.org/.

Candidates with backgrounds in developmental biology, quantitative imaging, and molecular biology are encouraged to apply. Please send your CV and a cover letter describing your expertise and interest in the UDS to katherine.rogers@nih.gov.

Postdoc: Mechanics of vertebrate morphogenesis in the Nerurkar Lab
Columbia University
The Nerurkar Lab at Columbia University is looking for potential postdocs with an interest in the interplay between molecular and mechanical aspects of vertebrate morphogenesis. Using the chick embryo, we combine live in vivo imaging, embryology and molecular genetics with engineering and physics approaches to study how developmental signals modulate physical forces that shape the embryo – and how forces in turn feedback on tissue growth and stem cell differentiation. 

While there are many potential projects and the flexibility for trainees to develop their own as well, we are particularly keen to recruit someone to study a peculiar cell population we have discovered: endodermal cells that appear to undergo widespread EMT before ingressing into the neighboring tissue and ultimately contributing to ectodermal and mesodermal tissues...after conventional gastrulation is complete! Other project areas relate to mechanics of epithelial morphogenesis in the forming gut tube and neural tube, buckling and organogenesis of the small intestine, and evo-devo mechanobiology.

If your interested in learning more about the lab and would like to meet informally during SDB, email me at nln2113@columbia.edu, Whova me (?), or visit some of our current lab members at posters 392, 395, and 403.

Fellow to TT Faculty Transition Pathway
Washington University in St. Louis School of Medicine
The Department of Cell Biology and Physiology at Washington University in St. Louis School of Medicine would like to solicit applications for a new Retention and Inclusion of Scholars for Excellence (RISE) Fellows program in the department.

As we are all aware, the lack of historically excluded and underrepresented (HEU) faculty members in US medical schools cannot be explained by a lack of available HEU talent, but is driven by the failure of departments to transition HEU talent into faculty positions (Gibbs, eLife 2016). We have created the RISE program to help address this transition. This program seeks to hire outstanding senior graduate students or early-stage postdoctoral fellows from HEU backgrounds into a three-year mentored Faculty Fellow period followed by a direct transition into a WashU Assistant Professor position in the Department of Cell Biology and Physiology (see https://sites.wustl.edu/risefellows/ more information). Important features of the program will include immediate faculty status, advocates and mentors, generous salary, flexible funding/startup, and ongoing professional development (e.g., in grant writing and management).

We would love your help in identifying candidates for this program. At this stage, we are hoping to make candidates aware of the program, answer any questions, and encourage interested applicants to apply—now or in future years. Please feel free to contact Dave Pagliarini pagliarini@wustl.edu or Amber Stratman a.stratman@wustl.edu with any questions. Applications will be assessed on a rolling basis.
