Beck Lab

Postdoctoral Researcher

The Beck lab at MDI Biolab (PI: Sam Beck; sbeck@mdibl.org) is recruiting a motivated post-doctoral researcher with experience in genomics/computational biology or in cell/molecular biology.

Our research focuses on understanding the biological mechanisms underlying gene regulation at the transcriptional level and how the dysregulation of gene expression is associated with human aging and diseases.
