Applications are invited for a NIH-funded postdoc position in the Park laboratory in the Department of Biochemistry at SUNY Buffalo (http://www.buffalo.edu/hunter-james-kelly-research-institute/laboratories/Park-lab.html). We focus on the transcriptional regulatory network governing oligodendrocyte development in an effort to develop novel therapeutics for brain disorders such as multiple sclerosis and autism. Toward this goal, we identify and characterize oligodendrocyte transcription factors and enhancers (Bioinformatics 27(21):3024; Nature Methods 9(12):1134; PLoS Biology 11(8):e1001624; Nucleic Acids Research 45(9):5112; Scientific Reports 8(1):13075; Human Molecular Genetics 28(21):3600; Journal of Biological Chemistry 2021 Mar 30:100612). We combine sophisticated computational analysis, cutting-edge epigenome editing techniques, traditional molecular and cell biology, and mouse genetics.

A PhD degree with strong background in molecular and cell biology and mouse handling is required. This position is immediately available and comes with a competitive salary and full fringe benefits. This postdoc position is suitable for those who are interested in becoming a principal investigator in the future. We are highly supportive of the career development of qualified and motivated postdocs.

Please send the following information to yungkipa@buffalo.edu: 1) your CV with a publication list, 2) a brief statement of previous research, and 3) contact information for three references. Reference letters will be requested later if necessary.
