The Hynes lab, (Stanford University), is looking for a post-doc to start Spring 2022 to work at the intersection of developmental and neuro- biology and RNA biology. Our lab made the surprising discovery that many (or all) genes show differential expression of their 3’UTR and cognate coding region, with expression highly correlated with developmental and cell-fate transitional states. Various open projects in the laboratory focus on the role of such isolated 3’UTRs or their isolated CDS’ in human stem cell organization and quiescence, tumor proliferation and metastasis, or early cell fate decisions of developing mouse dopaminergic neurons. The work incorporates both wet and dry methods, and all applicants should have experience or willingness to learn both. We are small group that shares space, equipment and meetings with the Tessier-Lavigne lab, providing a large, vibrant working-group. 
Our physical space is in the new, state of the art Bass Biology building, situated among the biological, computer and medical sciences at Stanford.

Required Qualifications: 
  • Experience in cell biology and or organismal biology with strong skills in molecular biology and cell culture (cell lines and primary cells).
  • Histological experience is a bonus.
  • Must be willing to use animal models and have  a firm grounding or interest in learning bioinformatics (formal coding not necessary).
