The Martienssen laboratory at Cold Spring Harbor has an opening for a postdoctoral fellow to study the mechanisms of epigenetic inheritance in fission yeast and mammalian cells, recently funded by the National Institutes of Health. RNA interference impacts inheritance and genome stability by silencing of repeats, as well as by non-canonical means, and successful applicants will explore the role of epigenetic modifications, phase separation and transcription-replication conflict in different developmental and cell cycle contexts. State-of-the art equipment and facilities are available both within the lab and in outstanding shared facilities.
Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory is a world-renowned biomedical research institution in New York. It has shaped contemporary biomedical research and is the home of eight Nobel Prize laureates. Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory provides a highly dynamic and interactive research environment and also a unique opportunity of timely exposure to advances in various biomedical research fields and of interaction with a broad range of researchers from all over the world through its renowned Meetings and Courses program.

Since 1890, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) has been a global leader in research and education. The international scientific community at CSHL provides a unique and stimulating atmosphere for doctoral research?an environment where students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty work side-by-side. The Watson School of Biological Sciences (WSBS) was founded on the belief that with well thought-out mechanisms, enthusiastic involvement of faculty, and highly motivated students, an innovative curriculum could be provided that would allow students to earn a doctoral degree in a shorter time than in traditional programs without compromising the quality of their training. The curriculum is designed to train students to become scholars and independent thinkers.
