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. https://doi.org/10.1101/gr.275868.121). 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
