Postdoctoral Associate Experimental Cell Biologist
Posted on Jul 15, 2022 by Scripps Research
The genomics-oriented cell biology laboratory of Dr. William E. Balch in the Department of Molecular Medicine at Scripps Research has openings for an individual with interest in understanding and treating mono and polygenic disease driven by genetic diversity in the population.
Key Responsibilities and Qualifications. Candidates with a Ph.D. in Cell Biology (or related field) and have strength in experimental technologies relevant to the application of precision medicine to the management of genetic disease.
Successful candidates will contribute to development and application of novel assays to assess impact of genetic diversity for different gene targets. Skill sets of interest include strong experience in tissue culture and the culture of human heterologous and primary cell lines including hiPSCs, familiarity with biochemical tools (SDS-PAGE, ELISA, etc.), knowledge and technical skills required for high-throughput/high content (imaging) screening (HTS/HCS) analyses. An interest in the genetic diversity driving the biology of human health and disease with experience in Systems Biology and computational approaches for analysis of large datasets to explore basic mechanism and therapeutics would be helpful.
Applicants should send CV and names and addresses of three references to
