University of Michigan The Pitchiaya lab is seeking to fill multiple positions.

We study gene regulatory mechanisms and cellular heterogeneity in stress response and cancer, and our work spans both basic and translational biomedical research. To this end, we take an integrated approach that uniquely combines classical molecular and cell biology assays with contemporary spatial analysis (single-molecule microscopy, super-resolution imaging and high-throughput imaging) and omics (bulk, single-cell and spatial epigenomics, transcriptomics and proteomics). We are located at the vibrant North Campus Research Complex, which houses laboratories, research cores and scientists from various disciplines and also contains units promoting commercial advancements of ideas. To add to these perks, we have ample and accessible parking space!! We have open positions at multiple levels (posted in the UM careers portal), namely, a Lab manager (ID: 221619), a Research Assistant (ID: 221410) and a Computational Biologist (ID: 206110). Please contact Sethu Pitchiaya (email: sethu@umich.edu, direct message on twitter: @SethuPitchiaya or direct message on Linkedin: SethuPitchiaya) for more information about these positions.

We are committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive work environment, which supports individual development and collaborations. We encourage applications from under-represented minorities, including women, individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds, under-represented racial or ethnic groups, and individuals with disabilities. We will make every effort to remove any barriers to the success of the hired individual.

Post Doctoral Fellow  (Boston Medical) – Hematology and Medical Oncology under Dr. Ruben Dries 

The lab’s main focus is on breast cancer and associated cancer disparities that are observed in our underserved patient populations at Boston Medical Center (BMC). We also collaborate on projects that investigate other cancer types (e.g. osteosarcoma) or important organs in development (e.g. fetal liver). We offer a unique and inclusive environment and the opportunity to explore and work with new cutting-edge tools. Our approaches encompass a combination of both experimental and computational instruments and allow you to grow as a scientist and develop the skills necessary for interdisciplinary research. In this role the fellow can also directly interact with our excellent (under)graduate students and provide mentorship and support where needed. Each individual will be given the opportunity to carve out an individual growth trajectory that matches their previous expertise and future goals.
