Chromosome/ Chromatin BiologyPosted by: National Institutes of Health (NIH)
Posted date: 2019-Aug-09
We are recruiting talented, skilled, mature and dedicated postdoctoral fellows to undertake ambitious and challenging projects in the area of chromosome/chromatin biology. The Dalal lab is at the National Cancer Institute within the exceptionally rated, integrative, and
Our lab focuses on the interactions between histone variants, lncRNAs, chromatin structure, and their involvement in normal epigenetic processes such as mitosis, as well as misregulation of epigenetic processes implicated in human cancer progression. Past members of our laboratory have published a number of papers on these topics and have successfully transitioned into independent positions (please see our lab website for our alumni). Consequently, we are now excited to recruit talented postdoctoral fellows to pursue projects arising from our previous work, with a focus on using single molecule microscopy to analyze chromatin dynamics. Salary is indicated on the NIH postdoctoral fellowship website.
Underprivileged members of the scientific community are strongly encouraged to apply. The Washington DC Metro area is a diverse, multicultural region, with plenty of outdoor and indoor activities, a vibrant restaurant and music scene, home to national museums and the national capital area. DC/MD/VA area schools are widely reputed to be excellent.
