We are always looking for talented, creative individuals at the postdoctoral or student levels to join our lab. If you are interested in studying some aspect of zebrafish head development or regeneration, please contact Gage Crump directly at gcrump@usc.edu.

Postdoctoral Researcher, Keck School of Medicine of USC

We are currently seeking creative and motivated postdoctoral candidates to work on a wide range of projects related to craniofacial development and regeneration in zebrafish. Our lab employs a combination of high-resolution imaging, gene editing, and next-generation sequencing to tackle the cellular and molecular basis of vertebrate head patterning, as well as to identify mechanisms of cartilage, bone, and joint regeneration in adults.

The applicant should hold a PhD degree and have a strong track record in research in fields including but not limited to genetics, development, cell biology, and stem cell biology. Prior experience working with zebrafish is not essential.

Candidates with recent PhD or within 1–2 years of post-doctoral experience are preferred. Applicants should also have a strong motivation for a career in science, outstanding bench and organizational skills, and excellent written and verbal English communication skills.

The position is open immediately. Candidates should send their CV, along with the names of at least three references to Gage Crump at gcrump@usc.edu.

The University of Southern California strongly values diversity and is committed to equal opportunity in employment. Women and men, and members of all racial and ethnic groups, people with disabilities, and veterans are encouraged to apply.
