The lab of Dr. Lacra Bintu employs single-cell methods, synthetic biology, and mathematical modeling to understand chromatin and gene regulation in a quantitative manner. The lab is part of Stanford University’s Bioengineering Department, which is joint between the Schools of Engineering and Medicine. Postdocs will have access to considerable resources for cell biology, fluorescence imaging, epigenomics, and computation in the lab as well as participate in a stimulating, productive research community. Positions are funded and provide competitive salaries for living in the beautiful northern California area.
Postdoc positions are available in the following areas:
- single-cell, multiplexed detection of chromatin modifications
- high-throughput synthetic manipulations of chromatin
- the role of chromatin in the innate immune response, including natural killer cells
Projects are not restricted to these topics; if you are interested in chromatin and gene regulation and enjoy quantitative puzzles, apply to do fun science with us!
Postdoc candidates, please send a CV, including names and contact information for 3 references. Additionally, please provide a brief cover letter describing your previous experience, career goals, proposed start date, and an informal description of your general scientific interests. Please email all documents in PDF format to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
