Postdoctoral position open in Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (Bethesda, USA)
Position Title: Retrotransposon L1 and regulation of genomic repeats
Position Description: A postdoctoral position is available to study how human
retrotransposon L1 is restricted by factors that cause 5’ truncation. Projects also include
study of copy number regulation of rDNA repeat sequences.
Having a long-standing interest in how repeat sequences impact the biology of the host,
we study retrotransposons in fission yeast, HIV-1 integration in cell culture, 5’ truncation
of L1 insertions and copy number control of rDNA repeats. Further details and a list of
publications can be found at:
Interested candidates must have a Ph.D. and/or an M.D. and have a strong background in
molecular genetics. Skills in bioinformatics and nanopore sequencing are desirable. To
apply submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, bibliography, and names of three references
