Postdoctoral Fellow - Epigenetics & Stem Cell Biology Laboratory

National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, Research Triangle Park, NC

About the position

Postdoctoral Fellowships are immediately available in the Jothi Lab at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), National Institutes of Health (NIH) to study transcriptional and epigenetic control of cell fate decisions.

The Jothi Lab use embryonic stem cell (ESC) and its differentiated derivatives as a model system to understand how transcription regulators and chromatin modifications regulate gene expression programs during cellular development and differentiation. For additional information, please visit the group’s website.

Successful candidates will undertake several exciting new projects in the general areas of chromatin biology, epigenetics, and transcription. They will employ a combination of molecular biology, biochemistry, and functional genomics (ChIP-Seq, RNA-Seq, etc.) to elucidate mechanisms of gene regulation.
