Scholarship Description:

A postdoctoral fellow position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Chongyi Chen at the National Cancer Institute (NCI), National Institutes of Health (NIH). The Chen 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.  

The laboratory is located in the NIH main campus, together with >1000 labs, and >100 National Academy of Sciences/Medicine members. NIH postdocs have access to first-class research facilities, enjoy outstanding salary and benefits often better than their counterparts in universities. We are stably and sufficiently funded intramurally 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. 

Available Subjects:

Molecular biology, cell biology, genomics, or related fields.

Eligibility criteria:

  • Candidates with prior experience in chromatin biology, genomics and single-cell biology are especially encouraged to apply. 

Application Procedure:

Interested applicants should send a CV including a publication list and the contact information of references to [email protected]
