We strive to create an engaging and fun environment to do science. We value rigorous work, ingenuity, and creativity. We like to share ideas and technologies, collaborations, and preprint all our work as soon as we submit to peer-review journals. We are looking for people that like to work as a team and like to teach and learn. We also seek diversity of all backgrounds including scientific, cultural, and personal.

With its more than 1000 labs, the NIH offers unique collaborative opportunities and world-experts from all fields of biomedical science, combined with core facilities equipped with the most cutting-edge technology. The lab is in Bethesda, Maryland, which offers an affordable suburban lifestyle with access to excellent public schools. It is also just 15 minutes away by metro from downtown Washington DC, a vibrant and diverse city with vast cultural offerings such as international restaurants, museums, art galleries, concert venues and much more to explore.


We are looking for people that share our enthusiasm with gene regulation, nuclear organization, or mouse development. Postdocs will be able to start their own research program or lead ongoing projects. PhD-level experience in at least one of the following is required: mouse development, mouse genetics, epigenetics, massively parallel sequencing-based techniques, or computational biology. Postdoctoral positions at NIH are fully funded. Please write a 2-paragraph cover letter explaining your scientific trajectory and why you would like to join us. Send it, together with your CV and contacts for 3 references, to

Ph.D. Students

Get in contact if you would like to do your PhD research work with us. There are two alternatives for this:

  1. NIH-established partnerships with academic institutions.
  2. Individual partnerships can be established on a case-by-case basis.


We welcome students that have applied or are interested in the NIH postbac program and that want to learn about mouse development, epigenetics, gene regulation and learn cutting-edge laboratory techniques.
