Postdoctoral position

The Bakel lab is looking for a Postdoctoral Fellow with a strong background in bioinformatics to join ongoing projects that are focused on the embryonic development of craniofacial, limb, and/or neural tube structures. The projects involve integrated and network analyses of an array of cutting-edge genomic datasets, such as single-cell RNA-Seq and spatial transcriptomics profiles of developing tissues in normal and mutant mouse models, of organoid models, and during differentiation of different cell types from human iPSCs. See our ad on Nature Jobs for more details.
