The Mills Lab has an exciting opportunity for a newly graduated PhD
student who seeks postdoctoral training in stem cells,
regeneration, and how they contribute to tumorigenesis. Graduating
students with experience in developmental biology or cell biology
are encouraged to apply for this position. The laboratory is
focused on studying conserved aspects of how stem cells are
recruited from differentiated cells via a process known as
paligenosis. We use a highly dynamic approach that includes: mouse
genetic models, cell culture models, 3D mouse and human organoid
cultures, and human gastrointestinal tissues. Further, we apply
transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics approaches to dissect the
role for autophagy, transcriptional regulation of gene expression,
organelle trafficking, and metabolic regulation of cell fate. The
successful candidate will join our exciting research team located
at the main campus of Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas.
This competitive research project is not only important for basic
science understanding of fundamental cell processes but also has
significant near-term translational potentials. Check out our work
