Structural Bioinformatics and [Onco]GenomicsPosted by: National Institutes of Health (NIH)
Posted date: 2020-Jan-16
A postdoctoral (or research fellow) position in the Laboratory of Cell Biology (NCI) is available to study molecular mechanisms of chromatin organization and gene regulation. Our research focuses on regulatory information present on both DNA (Dr. Victor Zhurkin) and RNA (Dr. Pedro Batista) that goes beyond the genetic code: sequence-dependent DNA mechanics and topological polymorphism of chromatin fibers; genome-wide analyses of protein-DNA/RNA interactions in the context of chromatin and mechanisms of RNA post-transcriptional regulation dependent on RNA modifications – e.g., tumor suppressor protein p53 interaction with DNA wrapped in nucleosome; development-induced changes in global chromatin organization (TADs and CTCF sites); the impact of m6A on mRNA half-life and translation in cancer.
