A postdoctoral position is available at Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USU) to study epigenetic regulation of chromatin silencing that links to differentiation and degeneration. We combine innovative cell and mouse models as well as high throughput genomics and proteomics approaches to understand fundamental mechanisms regulating genome stability in development, carcinogenesis, and neurodegeneration.
USU is located in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area, on the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center campus across the street from the National Institutes of Health.
Salary will follow NIH guidelines commensurate with training and experience.
The position requires Ph. D. in a discipline related to Cell Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Genetics or Neurosciences; research background in cell molecular biology and biochemistry; skills in use of confocal and epifluorescent microscopes; and knowledge of mammalian genetics. Additional expertise in chromatin biology, stem cell biology, neurodegeneration, and strong publication record is preferred.
To apply, submit a CV, a brief research statement, and names and contact information of three references to: Yuanyi Feng, MD, PhD, Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, USUHS, 4301 Jones Bridge Rd, Bethesda, MD 20814; yuanyi.fengusuhs.edu.
