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), NIH, located in Washington DC area. We are seeking a postdoctoral fellow to study epigenomic regulation of transcriptional enhancers. We use a combination of tools, including epigenomics, 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 cell type-specific gene induction in cell differentiation, tissue development and cell fate transition. 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 July 4, 2021 or until filled.
