Postdocs to uncover the genetic code of human diseases

We are recruiting audacious postdocs to uncover the genetic code of human diseases. We aim at systematically characterize the genetic variants, coding and noncoding, underlying human visual disorders. We integrate next generation sequencing, single cell omics, patient derived iPSC and retinal organoid, mice and non-human primate models, and machine learning and deep learning technologies approach to iteratively improve our ability to identify, assess, and predict the function of genetic variants in the context of human diseases. Applicants with experiences in human genetics, genomics, molecular biology, bioinformatics, machine learning are most welcome.

Postdocs to develop novel treatment of retinal degenerative diseases

We are looking for postdocs who are motivated to develop new cures for retinal degenerative diseases using the emerging genome editing approach. The retina is an ideal system to test and optimize the genome editing technologies as novel therapeutic approaches. In collaboration with various groups, our aim is to bring these exciting new technologies to human trial.
