Currently available positions

Live-cell super-resolution imaging

The Hodges lab is looking to recruit a graduate student or postdoctoral fellow interested in live-cell super-resolution imaging of chromatin regulators. An ideal postdoc candidate should have a PhD in the physical sciences, life sciences, engineering, computer science, or a related field. Those with experience in microscopy image analysis (especially TIRF or other single-molecule biophysics approaches) and coding are especially encouraged to apply.

Cancer epigenomics and computational analysis

The Hodges lab is looking to recruit a graduate student or postdoctoral fellow interested in the preparation and quantitative analysis of large epigenomic datasets. An ideal postdoc candidate should have a PhD in genetics, informatics, life sciences, bioengineering, or a related field, and have experience with high-throughput sequencing library preparation and analysis. Experience with RNA-seq, ChIP-seq, or ATAC-seq would be ideal. Previous experience with some coding is required.

Postdoc candidates, please send a CV, including names and contact information for at least 3 references, as well as a brief cover letter describing your previous experience, career goals, proposed start date, and an informal description of your general scientific interests. Applicants requesting a work visa should describe their needs and document English language proficiency. Please email all documents in PDF format to: hodgeslab-admin@bcm.edu.

Graduate students with interest or experiences in these areas are encouraged to contact Courtney Hodges via email describing their backgrounds and interests.

Staff Scientist
