Postdoctoral Fellow, Plant and Cellular Molecular Biology Laboratory, Dr. Julie Law

Job Details

The Law lab uses a combination of genetic, genomic, and biochemical techniques to understand how epigenetic modifications, like DNA and histone methylation, are established and modulated to properly regulate gene expression and promote genome stability using the plant model Arabidopsis thaliana. We are seeking highly motivated and independent postdoctoral fellows with experience in both computational and experimental aspects of chromatin biology to join our team and address questions of relevance to both agriculture and human health. Areas of particular interest include, but are not limited to, tissue and cell-type specific regulation of chromatin modifications, epigenetic engineering, and the regulation of chromatin dynamics during DNA repair.  

Education:

Ph.D. in Biological Sciences or related fields

Application Instructions:

Applicants should submit a current resume, names of three references, and an indication of how their expertise and academic accomplishments make them a good fit for the position.
