About the position: This position requires a scientist with expertise in genomics in general and epigenomics/chromatin biology in specific to support the JAX Center for 3D genome biology. This center is currently funded by two NIH center grants (4DN and ENCODE) and the Roux endowment, and its mission is to develop cutting-age technologies for comprehensive mapping of 3D genome organizations in human and mouse, and to uncover the topological mechanisms that control important genome functional modulation including gene transcription regulation. In this position within the JAX 3D genome center, the incumbent will provide scientific and programmatic leadership in the strategic discussion, technological development, experimental implementation, and data analysis/ interpretation, etc. The role will involve significant interaction and collaboration within the center, The Jackson Laboratory, and with external partners, particularly within the 4DN and ENCODE consortia. This position offers great growth opportunity to contribute both in novel technology development and advanced genomic discoveries that have immediate relevance in genetics and clinical significance in an innovative and fast-paced team environment.
