Two postdoctoral fellow positions are available in the Yildirim lab located at Department of Cell Biology, Duke University School of Medicine in Durham, North Carolina. We are looking for highly motivated and talented applicants who are interested in research involving noncoding RNA mediated epigenetic mechanisms and spatial organization of gene expression in mammalian systems, and the role of these processes in disease and cancer.

Qualifications The applicants should be recent recipients of a doctoral degree (PhD, MD/PhD or equivalent) and have strong training in genetics, molecular biology, cell biology, developmental biology or epigenetics. Expertise in stem cell biology (i.e. mouse embryonic stem cells, and/or hematopoietic stem cells) and ability to perform molecular and cellular protocols utilizing hematopoietic cells (including animal bone marrow transplantation models, flow cytometry, virus based assays) are required and background in mouse genetics and/or familiarity with genomics tools are strongly desired. It is also essential that the candidates have strong first author publication histories.

Application Applications should include a one-page cover letter, CV, publication list and names and contact information for three references. Review of applications will begin immediately, and the search will remain open until the positions are closed or filled.
