Postdoc in Chromatin Biology at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, United States (Tennessee)


Location: Nashville, TN

Deadline: June 09 2016

Description:New assistant professor at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine in the Departments of Medicine, Biochemistry and Pharmacology seeks an enthusiastic “soon-to-be PhD” interested in studying novel mechanisms of genomic regulation using chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP). The successful candidate will have outstanding letters of recommendation, will have published papers using ChIP assays, analyzed seq data, and above all else have an intense desire to endlessly learn and explore.

Our Group is interested in understanding how nuclear lipid signaling enzymes regulate genomic biology in mammalian cells. Phosphoinositide phospholipids exist within the nucleoplasm of eukaryotic cells, but no function has been ascribed to these non-membrane phospholipids. Your project will be to reveal that function using the tools of modern genomics, in light of exciting unpublished data the PI has developed.

We are very lucky to have a vibrant and diverse lab, and you will be expected to help maintain that atmosphere. Please visit our website to learn more about our group:
