Deadline: The position may have been removed or expired!

A postdoctoral position is available in Dr. Efsun Arda’s Developmental Genomics Group within the Laboratory of Receptor Biology and Gene Expression (LRBGE) Branch at the National Cancer Institute (NCI), National Institutes of Health (NIH). Our research is focused on understanding the regulatory networks that govern pancreas cell identity and function in the context of diabetes and cancer. The lab is highly interdisciplinary and uses state-of-the-art technologies to address outstanding questions in human pancreas biology. Potential projects include single-cell analysis, chromatin structure and regulation, gene networks, stem cell differentiation, CRISPR gene editing and organoid systems. We are seeking to recruit both basic and translational research-oriented candidates with strong background in one or more of the following fields: Genomics, Chromatin, Developmental and Cell Biology, Biostatistics, Systems and Computational Biology. The candidate will be fully supported by the funds from Center for Cancer Research (CCR), a division of NCI. The appointment is renewed annually upon performance evaluation for a maximum of five years. Other fellowship opportunities outside NIH are also available and applications will be supported. CCR provides a highly collaborative, enabling environment for research fellows with more than 40 core facilities ranging from bioinformatics and computing, chemistry and structural biology, flow cytometry, genomics, imaging and microscopy, proteomics and single cell analysis. NCI also provides training opportunities to early-career scientists to develop valuable leadership and management skills through targeted career development programs.


Applicants must have a Ph.D. and/or an M.D. degree, and at least one first author peer-reviewed publication.
