NIDDK Postdoctoral Position - Gene Regulation and Development
A postdoctoral fellowship will be available in the laboratory of Dr. Ann Dean from the Laboratory of Cellular and Developmental Biology, NIDDK, NIH.

How complex organisms with diverse tissue and cell types can arise from the same genome is one of the most enduring and fascinating questions in biology. We study enhancers, which are cis-acting DNA sequences that increase the transcriptional output of genes and, in so doing, orchestrate the cell specific transcriptomes that underlie development and differentiation. We are interested in the mechanisms that underlie formation of long range interactions between distant enhancers and target genes, how they influence and are influenced by overall chromosome folding and how enhancers change gene expression programs. Our studies focus on the family of β-globin genes, and erythroid genes more broadly, as a model system.

We are defining a complex of proteins including Ldb1/Lmo2/Tal1/Gata1 that mediates long range enhancer activation of essentially all erythroid genes. We are investigating the proteins the Ldb1 complex partners with to function in chromatin looping. We are also interested in the functional impact on gene expression of overall chromosome folding in the nucleus, which is thought to depend on architectural factors such as CTCF and cohesin.

To study long range enhancer-gene interactions, epigenetic histone modification and transcription regulation in mammalian cells, we use biochemistry, molecular biology, genetics and genomics. We deploy ChIP, ChIP-seq, RNA-seq and Chromosome Conformation Capture (3C)-related approaches and bioinformatic analysis, as well as RNA and DNA fluorescent in situ hybridization. Our experimental systems include (1) human and mouse erythroid cell lines, primary cells and mouse ES cells, (2) human β-globin YAC transgenic mice, and (3) mice with alterations in endogenous loci that we have targeted through homologous recombination or CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing.

NIDDK Postdoctoral Position - Endocrine and Developmental Control by Thyroid Hormone
A postdoctoral fellowship is available in the Laboratory of Dr. Douglas Forrest.

The project investigates underlying mechanisms of control by thyroid hormone receptors and how defects arise in thyroid disorders. The project takes advantage of novel genetic models and advanced genomic and single cell approaches to study thyroid hormone action.

Experience in molecular biology, genetics, genomics or computational analysis is an advantage.

Postdoctoral Fellow in Pediatric Infectious Diseases studying Klebsiella pathogenesis
Washington University School of Medicine
Our NIH-funded laboratory is seeking an energetic, highly motivated postdoctoral fellow for full-time work. The Rosen lab studies Klebsiella pneumoniae pathogenesis, virulence, and immune response. This increasingly resistant pathogen frequently causes pneumonia, sepsis and urinary tract infection in hospitalized patients in the United States and is the leading cause of childhood death in Africa and Asia.

NIDDK Postdoctoral Position - Genetics & Biochemistry
In meiosis, the repair of programmed DNA double-strand breaks (DSBs) by homologous recombination facilitates crossover formation and the subsequent segregation of homologous chromosomes in the first meiotic division. The overall goal of the research program in our lab is to discover the determinants that govern the placement of both the double-strand breaks that initiate meiotic recombination and the subsequent meiotic crossovers in mice and humans. The repair of DSBs can be error-prone and an important challenge is to understand the mechanisms of this mutagenic recombination and understand how cells avoid these errors. We use a combination of computational biology, genomics, biochemistry, and cell biology to achieve these goals
