Genome Stability and Bioinformatics

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

Position Description:

A postdoctoral position is available in the Mechanisms of Genome Dynamics Group to investigate DNA repair and genome instability using advanced yeast models, genomics of human somatic cells, and bioinformatics analysis of human genomics large data.

There are several related research projects using genetics, biochemical and bioinformatics approaches (including recently developed in this Group) to understand fundamental mechanisms of genome instability, and their impact on human health.

Along with exceptional facilities and resources, we provide a highly interactive and unique scientific environment and advanced training to develop synergistic set of top level expertise in molecular genetics and in bioinformatics. For more information about the Group see: The Group is a part of the Genome Integrity & Structural Biology Laboratory (i.e., department) with PIs renowned for their contributions to the area of genome stability.


A successful applicant would have:

  • A doctoral level degree with less than five years of postdoctoral research;
  • Experience in molecular biology and genetics;
  • Experience in bioinformatics is highly recommended.

Competitive stipends are determined by educational degree(s) and number of years of relevant postdoctoral experience.

NIEHS is surrounded by prominent research institutions, and it provides a stimulating environment and excellent opportunities for young scientists to develop their research careers. The Scientist and other scientific media consistently list NIEHS among the top places for postdoctoral training.
