Epigenetic Mechanism in Childhood Brain DisordersPosted by: Postdoc positions by NIH
Posted date: 2020-Jan-27
The Laboratory of Dr. Bhatnagar in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics seeks a postdoctoral Research Associate to work on a project focusing on epigenetic mechanism in childhood brain disorders and testing cutting-edge gene therapy approaches in preclinical models of Rett syndrome and DDX3X syndrome. Dr. Bhatnagar’s research has broad interest in identification of targetable epigenetic readers, writers and erasers for which we use large-scale and focused loss-of-function shRNA and CRISPR/Cas9 genetic screens. The lab routinely utilizes small molecule inhibitors, RNAi, immunotherapies, AAV9 vectors, and nanoparticle to generate effective cancer therapies.
This position is for a one-year appointment with the possibility to extend for an additional year based on productivity. This is a restricted position; continuation is dependent on funding and satisfactory performance. For additional information about the project, please contact Dr. Bhatnagar directly via email at sb5fkvirginia.edu.Responsibilities:
