Postdoctoral Fellow

Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Department/ Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, Bethesda, Maryland

Position Description:

This position will be in support of Dr. Philip Jordan in the Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Department, Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences. The research to be conducted focuses on understanding the molecular mechanisms that are required for maintaining the genome from one generation to the next. Our lab focuses on the function of proteins that ensure DNA replication is completed accurately, and chromosomes are compacted normally and segregate equally during cell divisions. Our lab specializes in the assessment of genetic disorders that cause developmental defects and infertility.

Qualifications:

  • Knowledge of appropriate scientific area; ability to analyze and interpret data
  • Experience using and/or creating transgenic mice for cell and molecular biology research.
  • Experience with cell culture – preferably with embryonic stem cells.
  • Experience with genetic manipulation using gene targeting strategies using CRISPR-Cas9.
  • Additional skills in anything related to discovering protein-protein interactions, mapping post-translational modifications, or analyzing DNA repair mechanisms would be welcome.
