Postdoc, Laboratory of Dr. Chongyi Chen at the National Institutes of Health (NIH)

Posted 6/2/2021

A postdoc position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Chongyi Chen at the National Institutes of Health (NIH)

The lab develops novel genomic technologies and single-cell sequencing assays to characterize and study chromatin biology and gene expression regulation in human cells, with a focus on the dynamics and regulation of DNA topology and topoisomerases genome-wide in key biological processes. We are a relatively young lab that have recently invented new genomic technologies, which open doors to many exciting projects in chromatin biology.

We are located in the NIH main campus, together with 1000+ labs and 100+ National Academy of Sciences/Medicine members. NIH intramural postdocs have access to first-class research facilities, enjoy outstanding salary and benefits. We are stably and sufficiently funded without the pressure of securing grants from time to time, thus have the privilege to focus on producing high-quality science.

We are looking for candidates with strong backgrounds in molecular biology, cell biology, genomics, or related fields who are passionate and self-motivated in research. Candidates with prior experience in chromatin biology, genomics and single-cell biology are especially encouraged to apply.

Interested applicants should send a CV including publications and references to
