Graduate Students

We are currently accepting Ph.D. students. Rotation positions are available. I can mentor students in the following programs:

Please see the Biological and Biomedical Sciences Program homepage for more information about the graduate program.

Postdoctoral Positions

The Phanstiel Lab at UNC is looking for a talented postdoctoral researcher to study the role of 3D chromatin structure in cellular differentiation and function. We are particularly interested in the role that enhancers and DNA loops play in regulating macrophage development and polarization. We study these processes both in healthy cells and in the context of the tumor microenvironment where unique extracellular signals promote the formation of a tumor promoting state known as tumor associated macrophages. Our lab employs a combination of genomic, bioinformatic, and genome editing techniques to dissect the molecular mechanisms of loop-based gene regulation in human cells. We encourage applicants looking to develop new skills in these exciting areas.
