Positions Available

Postdoc: Molecular Biology/Genetics/Developmental Biology/Computational Biology

A position is available to study the function of endogenous retroviruses and KRAB-Zinc finger proteins in mammalian development and evolution at the National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD. The Section on Mammalian Epigenome Reprogramming headed by Todd Macfarlan was established under the Earl Stadtman investigator program, designed to facilitate high risk-high impact science. The laboratory uses a multi-disciplinary approach combining molecular, biochemical, genetic, and computational approaches.  Candidates will have access to outstanding core facilities, substantial mouse colony space, and outstanding stipend support.


Interested candidates must have a Ph.D. or M.D. within the past five years in molecular biology, biochemistry, genetics, computational biology or a related field. Experience with mouse genetics, mouse development, ES/iPS cell culture, and/or next generation sequencing approaches is a plus.

To apply:

Send a coverletter with desired start date, a CV with bibliography, a brief description of research experience and interests, and the names of 3 references with contact information (including phone numbers) to todd.macfarlan@nih.gov.
