Job Title:

Postdoctoral Fellowship in Mammalian Epigenetics, Chromatin Structure and Function

Job Description:

A postdoctoral position is available at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the laboratory of Dr. Arthur Skoultchi, Professor and Chair of Cell Biology.

The goal is to understand the roles of H1 linker histones in chromatin structure and function and gene regulation.  We have prepared a unique series of knock-out mice and ES cell lines lacking specific H1 histones.  Our studies have revealed roles for H1 histones in DNA damage repair, gene regulation, including DNA methylation and imprinting, and nuclear organization (Fan et al. 2005, Cell 123, 1199-1212; Murga et al. 2007, J. Cell Biol. 178, 1101-1108; Yang et al. 2013, PNAS 110, 1708-1713; Geeven et al. 2015, Genome Biol. 16, 289).

Seeking an accomplished applicant with a strong background in cell and molecular biology.  Experience working with embryonic stem cells and mice is a plus.  However, in the selection of candidates we will emphasize overall scientific abilities and potential rather than specific experience or technical expertise.  Candidates must have a Ph.D. degree or equivalent and possess strong independent research abilities with ambitious scientific interests, self-motivation and the ability to work effectively with a team.

Successful candidates will be offered generous salary and benefits, including College-owned postdoctoral housing in a pleasant residential neighborhood near the medical school.  To apply, please send a CV, with a brief description of research experience and career goals, plus contact information for three references to:
