Positions at NIH


Health and Human Services
National Institutes of Health
Program in Genomics of Differentiation
Postdoctoral Positions Available

Fully funded postdoctoral positions are available in the Program in Genomics of Differentiation (PGD), Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), National Institutes of Health, Health and Human Services (NIH), Bethesda, MD. The PGD is a diverse and highly interactive program in basic cellular, molecular, and developmental biology research at the NIH just outside of Washington, DC. The 19 laboratories making up the PGD encompass a wide variety of research areas, with strong emphasis on developmental patterning and differentiation, chromatin dynamics and epigenetics, the immune system, the viral life cycle, DNA replication, gene regulation, and RNA metabolism. Program investigators perform research using a wide variety of models including viruses, bacteria, mammalian cell culture, yeast, fruit flies, zebrafish, frogs, and mice. Environment, resources, and stipend support are excellent. For additional information on the PGD and its researchers, including contact information for individual researchers, see http://science.nichd.nih.gov/confluence/display/pgd/Home. Interested applicants with a M.D, or Ph.D., and less than 5 years' postdoctoral experience should email a CV, bibliography, cover letter with a brief description of research experience and interests, and the names of 3 references (with phone numbers) to individual investigators listed below.
