The Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) is recruiting for a Supervisory Health Science Administrator to serve as a Branch Chief of the NICHD Developmental Biology and Structural Variation Branch (DBSVB) in the Division of Extramural Research (DER https://www.nichd.nih.gov/about/org/der). DBSVB provides a research focus to understand the biological processes that control normal embryonic development, as well as mechanisms that underlie molecular susceptibility and etiology of structural birth defects. The Branch supports studies to elucidate effects of genetic and epigenetic factors on fundamental developmental processes and mechanisms controlling the flow of genetic information and other factors during normal and abnormal development. The DBSVB seeks a candidate with a strong background in developmental biology; developmental genetics with an emphasis on the gene organization, regulation of gene action, gene regulatory networks, and the genetic basis of variation and birth defects; systems developmental biology; developmental neurobiology; processes directing the differentiation of embryonic stem cells; and/or regeneration and regenerative medicine. More information about DBSVB is available at https://www.nichd.nih.gov/about/org/der/branches/dbsvb.
