2 NIH-Funded Postdoctoral Positions Available in Epigenetic Research

Scholarship: Fully-Funded
Degree: PhD (and/or MD)
Nationality: International Students
Location: USA
Application deadlines: Rolling basis until the position is filled or the search is closed

Scholarship Description:

The Liang lab in the Chemistry Department at Case Western Research University (CWRU) is seeking two highly motivated postdoctoral fellows who share the interests and have research experiences in epigenetic research. These positions will focus on developing inducible CIRSPR-based technologies to enable the multiplex editing of epigenetic modifications on chromatin or RNAs, and applying these tools to investigate epigenetic memory and mitigate pathological conditions. 

Available Subjects:

  • Epigenetic Research

Eligibility criteria:

Successful candidates will have a PhD (and/or MD) with extensive experience in related epigenetics or RNA fields and a solid publication record demonstrating independence. Also desirable are skills in basic molecular biology and biochemistry techniques (e.g., cloning), ChIP/CLIP-qPCR analysis, cell culture, lentiviral production/transduction, producing stable cell line, CRISPR-based genome editing/modifying. 

Application Procedure:

Any inquiries and application materials – a brief introduction/cover letter, current CV, and names and contact information for three references – should be sent to Dr. Fu-Sen Liang via email: [email protected]. Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue on a rolling basis until the position is filled or the search is closed. The positions are open immediately but the start date can be negotiated based upon mutual agreement.
