The Sheikh Lab within the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology seeks a motivated and talented Postdoctoral Research Associate to join our team. Our lab focuses on understanding the biological events responsible for dynamically regulating the selective expression of the mammalian genome in the context on immune responses in the intestine and other autoimmune diseases including lupus. The lab is positioned at the interface between immunology, molecular biology and utilizes new high throughput genome wide tools to visualize changes in chromatin structure and function in human cells and animal models.
Education and Experience:
Background in computational biology is preferred. Experience in basic RNA seq analysis will be an advantage to the applicant. However, our group can train a motivated candidate in computational analysis of sequencing data.
