Postdoctoral Position in Drosophila Epigenetics and siRNA Function

Postdoctoral positions to explore X chromosome recognition during Drosophila dosage compensation are available at Wayne State University in Detroit, MI. NIH-funded projects focus on siRNA-mediated regulation of chromosome architecture and the genetics of X recognition (see: PNAS, 111, 16460-65; Curr. Biol. 27, 1393-1402).

In addition to conducting research, successful candidates are expected to write manuscripts, attend meetings and mentor students of all levels. Priority will be given to candidates with strong communication skills. Highly motivated researchers with strong records of scientific accomplishment and a recent PhD in genetics, epigenetics, biochemistry, small RNA biology or nuclear structure are preferred. Competitive salary and benefits are available, and compensation will be commensurate with the NIH scale. Detroit offers a diverse community of fly researchers in a vibrant, international and affordable city.
