The Department of Pharmacology at the University of Virginia seeks a motivated postdoctoral Research Associate to conduct research in the laboratory of Dr. Irina Bochkis. The Bochkis lab is utilizing experimental and computational methods to understand genetics and epigenetic mechanisms that regulate metabolism. We utilize functional genomics, chromatin biology, physiology, and transcriptional regulation in a comprehensive approach to decipher molecular mechanisms in mammalian models of human metabolic disease. We are looking for a postdoctoral researcher interested in epigenetic regulation and/or metabolism with experience in genomics and next-generation sequencing. Individuals with experimental background and/or computational background are encouraged to apply.
The successful candidate will work in a joint experimental and computational environment with excellent resources for experimental validation of hypotheses generated by genomic analysis. UVA offers a rich collaborative environment for postdoctoral associates.
Interested candidates must have a PhD or MD/PhD in genetics, molecular biology, genomics, computational biology, or a related field in hand by the start date. Experience with next-generation mammalian genomes (library preparation and sequence analysis) is preferred.
To apply, visit https://jobs.virginia.edu and search on Posting Number 0622296. Complete a Candidate Profile on-line; attach a CV, cover letter, and contact information for three references. The position will remain open until filled.
For information about the position, please contact Dr. Bochkis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
