National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases, Bethesda, MD and surrounding area
About the position
The Laboratory of Muscle Stem Cells & Gene Regulation, NIAMS, NIH focuses on the cellular and molecular mechanisms regulating specification, differentiation, and regeneration of skeletal muscle cells. Specific areas of investigation are: 1) transcriptional control of the regulatory circuitries involved in different aspects of adult muscle stem cell biology, 2) functional relation of metabolites and epigenetic modifications impacting adult muscle stem cell biology, 3) role of non-coding RNAs in skeletal muscle biology.
Postdoctoral positions are immediately available in the Laboratory of Muscle Stem Cells and Gene Regulation (LMSCGR) at NIAMS of the National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD, USA. Ambitious and strongly motivated individuals with a solid background in molecular biology (bioinformatics is desirable but not required) are invited to apply. The main areas of investigations relate to:
- Intersection of metabolism and epigenetics in the regulation of skeletal muscle stem cell biology
- Role of chromatin- and histone-modifying protein complexes in embryonic and muscle stem cells
