Postdoctoral Postdoc Position at University of North Carolina Chapel Hill

University of North Carolina Chapel Hill has an opening postdoctoral fellowship position in biochemistry. Applications should be sumbmitted as soon as possible.

The Integrative Program for Biological & Genome Sciences (iBGS) operates at the interface between the UNC-CH School of Medicine and the College of Arts & Sciences to support research that works towards a mechanistic understanding of basic biological processes, thereby generating discoveries that fuel the translational research pipeline. iBGS is uniquely well situated to support and promote the integration of fundamental new discoveries with etiological and therapeutic efforts by clinician-scientists to combat human disease.

The McKay lab is seeking a postdoctoral research scientist to pursue the role of histone post-translational modifications (PTMs) in epigenetic gene regulation. The successful candidate will combine biochemistry and genomics approaches with Drosophila genetics and a novel method for engineering histone gene mutations. One objective is to describe the histone PTM landscape by mass spectrometry in wild type and mutant animals, looking for evidence of histone PTM cross-talk. A second objective is to define the impact of histone mutation on epigenetic complex binding across the genome. Prior experience in at least one relevant area is highly preferred. The McKay lab is located in the new Genome Sciences Building and is affiliated with the UNC Biology and Genetics Departments, as well as the Integrative Program for Biological and Genome Sciences.
