Postdoctoral Position in T cell Epigenomics
The Barski Lab at Cincinnati Children’s has an opening for a Postdoctoral Fellow to study the epigenetic and transcriptional regulation of T cell activation. Candidates with a strong background in molecular biology, immunology, epigenetics and genomics are encouraged to apply. In particular, experience with human and mouse T cells and/or methods such as foot-printing, chromatin and transcription assays, DNA methylation, ChIP-Seq, RNA-Seq and NGS data analysis will be advantageous. An established track record (as evidenced by publications in peer-reviewed journals) is a significant plus. Salary is competitive with an attractive benefits package that includes family health and dental insurance. For consideration, please send your CV and the contact information for three references to Artem Barski, PhD (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center is an Affirmative Action / Equal Opportunity Institution. Women and Minorities are encouraged to apply.
The Barski Lab is focused on elucidating the mechanisms of epigenetic regulation involved in T helper cell activation, tolerance and memory. The goal of the research is to understand how the epigenome shapes immune responses and whether it is possible to modulate immune responses by targeting epigenetic mechanisms. The laboratory is using and developing cutting-edge wet-lab and computational methods based on next-generation sequencing (NGS). Please see: Barski et al. Cell, 2007; Kartashov and Barski. Genome Biology 2015; Barski et al. Scientific Reports, 2017.
