Transcriptional Regulation in Single Live Cells

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

Position Description:

Multiple postdoc positions are available in the laboratory of Dr. Rodriguez in the Epigenetics and Stem Cell Branch, National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, NIH in Research Triangle Park, NC.  We are interested in understanding eukaryotic gene regulation in single cells and the factors that contribute to disease. We are currently investigating how transcriptional regulators and nuclear architecture elicit highly dynamic and heterogenous transcriptional responses to environmental stimuli.  The lab uses live and fixed cell single-molecule microscopy, deep sequencing, and biochemistry to gain a mechanistic and functional understanding of cellular processes.

Qualifications:

PhD in molecular/cell biology, genomics, biophysics, biochemistry or relevant field.  We are looking for postdoc candidates with experience in epigenetics, transcription, RNA, or single cell biology. We welcome applications from candidates with backgrounds in computational modeling.  No prior experience in microscopy is necessary.

To Apply:

Interested candidates should send a short statement of how your interests and research accomplishments fit with interests in the lab, CV and contact information for 3 references to Joseph.Rodriguez@nih.gov.
