Postdoctoral positions to study the histone code and gene regulation

The Strahl lab provides a unique opportunity for inquisitive researchers to study the role of histone post-translational modifications (e.g. acetylation, methylation and ubiquitylation) in chromatin structure and function. We are continually seeking enthusiastic and highly motivated individuals with a strong publication background to join us in this very exciting field of study. A Ph.D. with some molecular biology experience is required. Additional experience in proteomics, microarray and/or yeast manipulation is preferred but not necessary as we seek individuals with high training potential.


UNC offers an outstanding environment to carry out your studies in the Strahl lab. There are a wide number of core facilities, expert epigenetic faculty to consult and collaborate with, and an extremely friendly living environment here in Chapel Hill. In addition, UNC harbors two outstanding postdoctoral training programs for which you can gain independent funding. One is the Integrated Training in Cancer Model System (ITCMS), and the other the SPIRE training program (which is centered more so on teaching development). I encourage all of my trainee's to apply for these incredible training programs when joining the lab, which offer great career development opportunities and support. In all, UNC and my lab offer an outstanding place to train for a scientific career in the biomedical sciences.


If you are interested in pursuing research with our lab, please send your CV, along with the names of 2-3 references, to brian_strahl@med.unc.edu.
