Epigenomic Regulation of Enhancers

National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, Bethesda, MD and surrounding area

Position Description:

A postdoctoral position is available in Dr. Kai Ge’s lab at the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), National Institutes of Health (NIH), located in Washington DC area. We are seeking a motivated postdoctoral fellow to study epigenomic regulation of transcriptional enhancers. We use a combination of tools, including epigenomics (ChIP-Seq, RNA-Seq, ATAC-Seq), bioinformatics, live-cell imaging, proteomics, CRISPR gene editing and mouse genetics, to study how transcription factors, histone modifying enzymes and chromatin remodelers coordinate to regulate enhancer activation and gene expression in differentiation, development and cancer. Additional information can be found at:


Candidates should have a Ph.D. degree in biological sciences with less than 3 years postdoctoral experience. A strong background in molecular biology, cell biology, biochemistry or bioinformatics is desired. Stipend will be commensurate with experience.

To Apply:

Please send a brief description of research experience and interests, CV, and names of three references to:

Kai Ge, Ph.D.
Senior Investigator and Section Chief


This post will be available until December 11, 2020 or until filled.
