Epigenetics and Transcription Regulation

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

Position Description:
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 mechanisms of gene regulation using embryonic stem cells as a model system.
The Jothi Lab is interested in understanding how transcription regulators and chromatin modifications regulate gene expression programs during cellular development and differentiation. Successful candidates will undertake several exciting new projects in the general areas of Transcription, Epigenetics, and Stem Cell Biology. He/She will employ a combination of biochemical and genomics approaches (ChIP-Seq, RNA-Seq, etc) to elucidate mechanisms of gene regulation.


Candidates should have obtained a PhD degree within the last 5 years in Biological Sciences or a related discipline, and have a strong background in molecular biology and/or protein biochemistry. Excellent communications skills and the ability to work on a variety of projects are essential.

NIEHS main campus is located in the Research Triangle Park (RTP), North Carolina. The RTP is the largest research park in US located between Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill, and is ~15-minute drive from Duke University, University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, and North Carolina State University.
