Postdoctoral Fellow

We have an opening for a postdoctoral fellow. We recently developed a bioinformatic pipeline for Nanopore sequencing of telomeres and found, surprisingly, that specific chromosomes maintain unique, stable telomere length equilibria (Sholes et al, 2021, Genome Res. The mechanism by which these chromosome end-specific telomere lengths are maintained is not known, and will be critical to understanding telomere length dynamics. We are looking for a recent PhDs with backgrounds in computational biology/computer science or in yeast biology with computational skills who are interested in pursuing bioinformatics, modeling and lab experiments to test models of telomere length regulation. Interested applicants should e-mail their CV and 1 paragraph statement of interest to Dr. Carol Greider at

Graduate Students

We welcome rotation students within UCSC; e-mail the PI if interested. Prospective graduate students should apply to a bio-related program through UCSC here.
