Several postdoctoral fellowship positions are available to exceptional candidates for translational research projects utilizing Homology Medicine's non-nuclease gene editing technology platform. Revolutionary approach and innovative projects will focus on studying mechanisms of action, methods for defining genomic, structural and functional characteristics of novel genetic vectors, novel therapeutic strategies and validation in in vivo models of human disease.
Experience with homologous recombination, DNA repair pathways, chromatin immunoprecipitation, protein-protein and protein-DNA interactions, next generation sequencing, computational analyses and in vivo models is desirable. Strong background in molecular virology and biology is preferred.
Highly motivated, industrious, rigorous, independent yet collaborative individuals with outstanding communication skills and who thrive in an exciting, fast-paced environment will be ideally suited for these positions.
Positions available in the laboratory of Dr. Saswati Chatterjee at the Beckman Research Institute of the City of Hope, in the greater Los Angeles area. Dr. Chatterjee is a scientific co-founder of Homology Medicines and led the first adeno-associated virus (AAV) vector gene transfer studies into human hematopoietic stem cells and discovered a series of naturally-occurring AAVs from human cells.
