We are seeking candidates interested in exploring how non-coding pathways centered on Argonaute proteins are regulated in vivo, and how they shape gene expression programs to impact cell fate decisions and ultimately animal health. Our lab combines mouse genetics with state-of-the-art biochemical, imaging, and high-throughput approaches including CLIP and CRISPR screens (visit our lab’s webpage to learn more!).

Requirements: The ideal candidates will have:

  • PhD in biology or related field
  • strong research interest in RNA
  • strong expertise in Molecular and Cell biology
  • expertise in Immunology and/or Cell cycle regulation are a plus but not essential


We offer: Candidates would be joining a dynamic multi-disciplinary team, have access to state-of-the-art facilities, and the opportunity to develop their own ideas in a highly stimulating scientific environment. We offer fully funded positions with competitive salaries (0-1 year experience ~$60k) and benefits. The NIH campus provides an opportunity for living in a vibrant, diverse city (Washington DC) or in a suburban community with some of the best public schools in the country (Bethesda).
