NIH NIA PostdocPosted: 06 19, 2017
Postdoctoral opportunity in chromatin mechanisms of inflammation and aging at the National Institutes of Health, USA
A postdoctoral fellowship is available immediately at the National Institute on Aging, NIH, from a two-year collaborative project at intramural NIH with a potential for renewal in the third year. We will use high throughput sequencing methods to analyze chromatin of primary mouse macrophages and identify chromatin changes during inflammation and aging relevant for Parkinson’s disease. The fellow will work primarily in Baltimore and coordinate efforts in the laboratories of Myong-Hee “Mia” Sung (NIA Baltimore), Michael Bustin (NCI Bethesda), and Mark Cookson (NIA Bethesda).
We are seeking a recent Ph.D. scientist in biochemistry and molecular biology who can act as a bridge between the three collaborating laboratories in Bethesda and Baltimore. The following are important factors for evaluating the suitability of candidates:
Familiarity or experience with ChIP-seq or ATAC-seq
Experience with isolation of primary cells from mice
Familiarity with mouse colony management
Willingness to travel between Bethesda and Baltimore labs whenever necessary
Strong communication skills, both orally and in writing
Good organizational skills
Familiarity with known mechanisms of inflammation and/or aging
To apply, please send a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and contact information for 3 references to: firstname.lastname@example.org . Evaluation of candidates will begin immediately and the fellowship will start before September 30, 2017.
