A Postdoctoral Research Fellow position is available immediately in the Division of Reproductive Sciences at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. We are seeking a highly motivated and enthusiastic individual with excellent interpersonal skills to join our research team. Our research focuses on elucidating the molecular mechanism of long non-coding RNA-mediated epigenetic gene regulation using X-chromosome inactivation as a model system.
(1) How is chromosome-wide silencing induced by long non-coding RNAs?
(2) How is long-range silencing maintained and organized?
