The National Institutes of Health is a world-leading biomedical research campus located in Bethesda, Maryland made up of 27 individual, mission-centered institutes. It also serves as the main funding agency for biomedical research throughout the United States. The National Human Genome Research Institute (https://www.genome.gov/about-nhgri) has a specific focus on understanding how the genome functions and how alterations in the genome impact human health.
The Burgess lab (https://www.genome.gov/staff/Shawn-Burgess-PhD ) is seeking a Postdoctoral Fellow for a fully funded position (international applications are possible). The lab has broad interests in identifying the genes and regulatory networks necessary for hearing and/or other tissue regeneration in zebrafish. There are also opportunities for developing new model systems, computational projects including genome assembly, and technology development to leverage zebrafish in high-throughput screening approaches such as drug screening or CRISPR/Cas. There are many projects available and preference is given for ideas generated by the applicant.
