 Post-doctoral Fellow Position


Position Location: NIH Main Campus in Bethesda, Maryland

Post-doctoral fellowship positions are available in the Laboratory of Molecular Genetics at the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), NIH.

We are looking for curious and motivated individuals to join our lab to explore fundamental questions in mitochondria biology. The lab has been at the forefront in studying mitochondrial genetics and inheritance in fruit flies. Current and future projects are to understand the basic principles guiding the transmission of mitochondrial DNA, and to explore potential mito-nuclear communications that control mitochondrial biogenesis and mitochondrial genome maintenance. Beyond studies in Drosophila, our research horizon has expanded into mitochondrial and metabolic regulations in other model organisms including mouse and Dictyostelium.

The NHLBI provides an outstanding research environment, excellent fellowship support, and ample opportunities for young scientists to launch their own independent research careers.

For more information about our research and/or fellow application process, please contact me directly.
