Post-Doctoral Fellow

A Postdoctoral Fellow position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Ramji Bhandari to study molecular mechanisms underlying transgenerational inheritance of environmentally induced developmental origins of adverse health outcomes in medaka fish, a biomedical model. The project will focus on epigenetic changes (DNA methylation, histone modifications, and miRNAs) in germ cells and soma across many generations caused by developmental exposure to environmental estrogens.

The candidate will lead efforts to link epigenetic changes to transgenerational phenotypes, combining in vivo studies with cell-based molecular analyses. The candidate should be enthusiastic, scientifically rigorous, and able to drive an individual project. A track record of publications in developmental biology and epigenetics and experience with advanced molecular research techniques is required. A part of the project is next generation sequencing of epigenome and transcriptome. Prior experience in next generation sequencing data analysis (RNAseq and RRBS/WGBS) is not required, but is preferred.

The applicant should have a PhD in developmental biology, environmental epigenetics, or closely related biological sciences. Interests in environmental epigenetics and fish models is preferred. Preference will be given to the applicant with at least 1 year of working experience in environmental toxicology, developmental biology, R package, and fish model.

Please visit UNCG’s JobSearch website, https://jobsearch.uncg.edu, to submit a cover letter, a CV with a list of publications, and email contacts for three references for position #1474.

The evaluation of applications will begin November 15, 2016, and will continue until the position is filled. The position starts in December 2016.
