Transcriptional Regulation of the Hormone Response

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

Position Description:

A postdoc position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Rodriguez in the Single Cell Dynamics group, Epigenetics and Stem Cell Biology Laboratory, National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, NIH in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina. We are interested in eukaryotic gene regulation and how environmental stimuli regulate the single cell estrogen response. Our long-term goal is to understand how heterogeneity in the hormone response contributes to disease. The lab uses a variety of imaging and sequencing approaches including live cell single-molecule microscopy. Projects include understanding how enhancers and promoters regulate estrogen activated transcriptional activity in breast cancer cell lines, organoids and mice.


PhD in biophysics, molecular/cell biology, biochemistry or relevant field with less than three years of postdoctoral research. Experience in epigenetics, RNA, transcription is a plus.

To Apply:

Interested candidates should send a short statement of how their interests and research accomplishments fit with interests in the lab, CV and contact information for 3 references to
