Job DescriptionA postdoctoral fellow position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Chongyi Chen at the National Cancer Institute (NCI), National Institutes of Health (NIH). The potential projects are to investigate the dynamics and regulation of DNA topology upon mitotic chromosome condensation, and to investigate the role of DNA topology in gene expression regulation in human cells. The Chen lab study chromatin structure, DNA topology, and gene expression regulation in human cells, by various genomic technologies and single-cell sequencing assays newly invented in the lab.
