Career Opportunities


We are interested in both basic and translational aspects of human development, diabetes, stem cell and regenerative biology, and pancreatic cancer. We strive to create an environment that is interactive, intellectually stimulating, productive and fun. We welcome self-motivated individuals to join us.

Areas of special interest

Interested in applying large-scale CRISPR-Cas9 and CRISPRi screens in hPSCs to uncover new aspects of human development and disease? Interested in human genomic variants and their impact on human health? Interested in 3D genome architecture and its rewiring in diabetes? We are looking for motivated individuals to join exciting projects in these areas. Below are examples of some recently funded grants from NIH.

We are also looking for motivated individuals to work on pancreatic cancer models. A new area involves modeling neuroendocrine cancer progression, a collaboration between the Huangfu and Ziv Labs.

Research Technician

This position involves lab maintenance and participation in research projects under close supervision. Practical laboratory experience in molecular biology is required. Experience with tissue culture and/or mouse genetics is a plus but not necessary.

Postdoctoral Fellows

Motivated individuals interested in fundamental or applied aspects of stem cell and developmental biology are encouraged to apply. Specific projects will be discussed and tailored towards individual interests and training background. Innovative, bold ideas are highly encouraged. Expertise in one or more of the following areas is preferred: cell biology, stem cell and regenerative biology, mouse genetics and cancer biology.

Project Manager 

We are looking for a PhD scientist interested in taking on the responsibility of planning and overseeing large consortium projects.

Application Requirements

Please include the following:

  1. Cover letter indicating research interest and expected availability date
  2. Curriculum Vitae including research experience and a list of publications
  3. Contact information for three references
