Postdoctoral Position at NIH

The National Institute on Aging, a major research component of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) is recruiting one post-doctoral fellow to join the Laboratory of Genetics and Genomics, Intramural Research Program (IRP), with a background in any of the following areas: Neuroscience, RNA biology, genomics, epigenetics, chromatin, mouse models, transcription, and DNA repair. The main project is to study a newly identified dual-activity topoisomerase complex that can solve topological stress for both DNA and RNA; and is crucial for regulating gene expression and maintaining genome stability in neurodevelopment and prevention of mental disorders, including schizophrenia, autism, and Fragile X mental retardation syndrome (Nat. Neuroscience, 2013, Aug 4; highlighted in Nature). Other projects include purification of multi-protein complexes, and analysis of their structures and functions in DNA damage response and genome instability diseases (Mol. Cell 37: 865-878; Mol. Cell 47: 61-75; Genes & Dev. 22: 2843-55; Nat. Genet. 35:165-70; 37: 958-63) (http://www.grc.nia.nih.gov/branches/lg/trru/trru.htm).  Successful applicants will possess a Ph.D. degree in neuroscience, biochemistry, molecular genetics, genomics, or a related field, with no more than five years of postdoctoral research experience.  Salary is commensurate with research experience and accomplishments. Applicants should send the curriculum vitae, via email to Dr. Weidong Wang, wangw@grc.nia.nih.gov.
