The Gracz lab is hiring a postdoctoral researcher to join our lab in the Division of Digestive Diseases at Emory University. We are interested in understanding the genetic regulation of tissue regeneration in the intestine and liver. Our work focuses on the intersection of transcriptional regulation, chromatin, and cell biology.


This position will be instrumental in driving projects in liver injury, biliary epithelial biology, and ductular reaction. Key scientific questions will focus on understanding transcriptional and chromatin regulation of damage response in intrahepatic bile ducts.
The position will be supported by new R01 funding from NIH/NIDDK and internal funding from the Emory School of Medicine. There are ample opportunities and resources for developing new projects, taking creative and bold risks, and pursuing new lines of research. The training environment within the Division, as well as across Emory University provides ample opportunity for collaboration and co-mentorship.


Our lab has expertise in a wide range of techniques, including transgenic/knockout mouse models, mouse and patient-derived organoids, bulk and single-cell genomics, and computational biology. We believe in embracing and adopting new technologies and experimental approaches that allow us to better answer our core biological questions. Candidates with expertise in any area of cell biology and/or genetics, along with strong oral and written communication skills, are encouraged to apply.

The ideal candidate will bring enthusiasm and creativity to technically challenging benchwork. They will thrive in an environment that prioritizes experimentation to drive the intellectual advancement of the research program.
