A postdoctoral fellowship is available immediately at the National Institute on Aging, NIH, from a two-year intramural NIH project with a potential for renewal in the third year. We aim to develop new high throughput sequencing methods to analyze patient plasma samples. The successful applicant will work with Drs. Myong-Hee Sung and Ranjan Sen in the Laboratory of Molecular Biology and Immunology located in NIH/NIA Baltimore, Maryland.
We are seeking a highly motivated recent Ph.D. scientist who has a solid background in biochemistry and molecular biology and is interested in mastering the latest epigenomic tools. An ideal candidate would have some experience with construction and QC of sequencing libraries for Illumina GA/HiSeq/NextSeq platforms (RNA-seq, ChIP-seq, or DNase/ATAC-seq). Familiarity with commonly used computational genomics tools would be preferred but not
