Postdoctoral Fellowship in Molecular Structure and Functional Genomics

Updated: 5 days ago
Location: Bethesda, MARYLAND

We focus on diseases of the aging eye, particularly age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and cataract. We use a wide range of techniques from cell biology and animal models to biophysics and structural biology. Recent work has discovered a new mechanism in AMD and a new model for crystallin aggregation.


Qualifications:

Applicants should have experience in cellular or structural biology and an interest in systems biology approaches. Experience in eye research is advantageous but not essential. Candidates must hold a Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. with less than 4 years postdoctoral experience. The position provides generous scientific resources, stipend support, and health benefits. U.S. citizens, U.S. permanent residents, and non-U.S. citizens are eligible to apply.


To Apply:

Interested candidates should send an email with curriculum vitae, bibliography, a paragraph of research goals and interests and contact information of three references to: Dr. Graeme Wistow (graeme@helix.nih.gov ).

The NIH is dedicated to building a community in its training and employment programs and encourages the application and nomination of qualified women, minorities, and individuals with disabilities.
