Postdoctoral Position in Biochemistry and Gene Expression

A postdoctoral fellow position is available in the Eukaryotic Transcriptional Regulation group, Epigenetics and Stem Cell Biology Laboratory, National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences. Our research program studies regulation of gene expression through chromatin mediated mechanisms, focusing on histone modification and chromatin remodeling (see for example Takaku et al., 2016 Genome Biology 17: 36 doi: 10.1186/s13059-016-0897-0; Li et al., 2015 Cell Metabolism 19: 702-711).. Current work addresses gene regulatory paradigms focusing on the Mi-2/NuRD complex and on DNA methylation. Successful candidates will lead projects that incorporate state of the art technologies, including epigenomics and biochemistry in cellular and animal models.

The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) is located in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina.

The NIH is dedicated to building a diverse community in its training and employment programs.


We seek highly motivated individuals with an MD degree or a PhD degree in Biology, Molecular Biology, Biochemistry or a related discipline with less than 2 years postdoctoral experience. Experience in protein biochemistry or molecular biology is highly desirable. Recent graduates are encouraged to apply.
