We currently have a Postdoctoral Fellow position available for a chimeric (wet/dry) scientist to specialize in cis-regualtory genomics and epigenomics. This position is for an NIH-funded project through the 4D Nucleome consortium focused on investigating 2D gene regulation and 3D genome architecture, and the relationship to autoimmune diseases/disorders. We are studying disease-associated variants within cis-regulatory elements (CREs; such as enhancers) using massively parallel reporter assays and chromatin QTL mapping (ATAC-seq) from donor samples, and identifying CRE target genes using 3D genome architecture (Hi-C based methods), as well as CRISPR editing in primary T cells. The successful applicant will have the opportunity to lead on this project including wet lab data generation and help with integrative data analysis of these genome-wide datasets and collaborate with our colleagues using functional system immunology as validation.
Candidates should have experience in epigenomics, gene regulation and/or immunology. Demonstrable skills in biostatistics, bioinformatic and data visualization are a plus. Good written and verbal communication skills are required. Must be highly motivated, but can’t take yourself too seriously, and get along well with others.
