Gene Regulation of Innate and Adaptive Lymphocytes in NeuroinflammationPosted by: National Institutes of Health (NIH)
Posted date: 2020-Apr-20
A postdoctoral position is available in the the Shih lab in Neuro-Immune Regulome Unit at National Eye Institute and National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke in Bethesda, MD. Recently, emerging evidence indicates a role of inflammation in aging and neurodegenerative diseases; however, how pro-inflammatory molecules and immune cells are involved in disease onset and pathogenesis remains largely unknown. Our lab aims to understand the transcriptional networks in gene regulation of lymphocytes and cytokines in diseases of the eye and CNS. Using unbiased genomic approaches including single cell RNA-seq, single cell ATAC-seq, ChIP-seq or Cut&Run, Hi-C and CRISPR-screening, we seek to identify novel regulatory pathways for therapeutic targets.
This position offers exposure to multidisciplinary and cutting-edge genomic researches and opportunities to collaborate closely with experts in immunology, neurobiology and bioinformatics. The candidates will be leading/co-leading projects, designing experiments for generating high-dimensional data while working closely with collaborators and lab members. Opportunities for training in bioinformatics as well as mentoring postbacs or summer students will be available based on interest.Qualifications:
Interested candidates should send a cover letter, curriculum vitae, bibliography, a paragraph of research statement and contact information of three references to: Han-Yu Shih (han-yu.shihnih.gov).
This post will be available until July 20, 2020 or until filled.
