GENERAL SUMMARY OF POSITION:
Our group studies how regulatory elements establish cell specific gene expression patterns. Our goal is to reliably estimate the impact of regulatory mutations on immune and autoimmune disease. To this end we combine innate immune murine and human in-vitro models and ongoing clinical collaborations. Our laboratory actively develops both computational and experimental methods to map and functional characterize 3-dimensional regulatory interactions, build models that incorporate these interaction maps to predict gene expression and applies these models to clinical data.
We seek a highly motivated individual to lead our experimental operation. In this role you will mentor graduate students and work together with computational biologists in the design, analysis and interpretation of methods to map and understand gene regulatory elements.
