Postdoctoral fellowships are available in Trevor Archer's laboratory at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), National Institutes of Health (NIH) in North Carolina. http://www.niehs.nih.gov/research/atniehs/labs/escbl/pi/cge/index.cfm. The intramural program of the NIEHS is dynamic and highly collaborative, offering an outstanding postdoctoral training experience. We are seeking fellows with an interest in the mechanisms by which chromatin remodelers, (e.g. SWI/SNF complex), function with transcription factors to regulate signal transduction by nuclear receptors, (e.g. Glucocorticoid and Progesterone Receptors), in cancer cells and with primary regulators (e.g. Oct4, mir302,) in embryonic stem cells. Examples of our work are found within the attached link; http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=archer+tk
Candidates should have obtained a PhD degree within the last 5 years in the biological sciences and have extensive training in chromatin biochemistry and/or molecular biology and/or genetics; 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.
NIEHS main campus is located in the Research Triangle Park (RTP), North Carolina. The RTP is the largest research park in US located between Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill.
Successful candidates will be offered competitive stipend/salary commensurate with number of years of postdoctoral experience and accomplishments.
