The Intramural Research Program of the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) at the National Institutes of Health is seeking a postdoc to join the Systems Biology and Genome Engineering Section (SBGE), in Bethesda, Maryland.
The Sadhu lab’s focus is on genome functionalization: understanding how genetic differences across the genome affects phenotypes. To tackle this question, we are developing and applying new high-throughput methods. This includes harnessing the strengths of CRISPR, large scale oligo synthesis, and yeast genetics. Research in the Sadhu lab involves both wet lab and dry lab components, giving postdocs the opportunity to develop and sharpen skills in either.
Postdocs in the Sadhu lab will be joining the unique scientific environment at the NIH, with thousands of highly collaborative researchers working on topics spanning basic biology to clinical research. In addition, the Washington, D.C. metro area is an exciting, cosmopolitan place to live, with excellent transit, schools, and attractions.
The successful candidate will have completed or be nearing the completion of their Ph.D., and have interests in genetics, evolution, or systems biology. It is important that the successful candidate be able to work semi-independently at developing and troubleshooting novel techniques, reading current scientific literature and applying it to their project, and presenting data and ideas through lab meetings, seminars, conferences, and written publications.
Interested applicants should send a detailed letter of interest to Dr. Meru Sadhu at email@example.com. In your letter, describe your motivation for joining the Sadhu lab. If you have specific ideas of what you would like to work on that would be a good fit for the Sadhu lab, please include them. In addition, please list three potential references.
For more information, please visit Dr. Sadhu's research group.
The NIH and SBGE are dedicated to building a diverse community in its training and employment programs.
