Exploring Chromatin & Epigenetic Mechanisms in Cancer and Development

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

Position Description:

Postdoctoral fellowships are available in Trevor Archer’s laboratory at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), NIH in the Research Triangle Park, North Carolina. We are seeking enthusiastic fellows with an interest in: 1) The mechanisms by which ATP dependent chromatin remodelers function with transcription factors to regulate transcription in cancer cells; or 2) Understanding how chromatin and epigenetics work with master regulators in embryonic stem cells and induced pluripotency cells derived from diverse human populations.

Recent examples of our work in these areas can be found here: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=archer+tk

For additional information, please visit: http://www.niehs.nih.gov/research/atniehs/labs/escbl/pi/cge/index.cfm.

Successful candidates will have a choice of several exciting projects in the areas of Chromatin, Transcription, Epigenetics, and Stem Cell Biology. Successful candidates will be offered competitive stipend/salary commensurate with number of years of postdoctoral experience and accomplishments.

Qualifications:

Candidates should have obtained a PhD degree within the last 5 years in biological sciences and have extensive training in biochemistry and/or molecular biology and/or genetics/epigenetics; experience in stem cell biology and or bioinformatics, are also highly desirable but not essential. Excellent communications skills and a strong work ethic are essential.

To Apply:

Please send CV and the names of three references via email to Trevor Archer, Ph.D. at: archer1@niehs.nih.gov.
