This position is located in Kannapolis, NC (appx 2 hours from main campus, near Charlotte, NC). The Krupenko lab is located at the Nutrition Research Insitute (NRI) on the North Carolina Research Campus (NCRC) in Kannapolis, North Carolina. We are seeking an energetic and talented postdoctoral researcher to study the nuclear function of folate enzyme glycine N-methyltransferase (GNMT). This exciting project will utilize cell culture techniques and animal and human tissues to answer questions about the role of GNMT in nucleus-associated regulatory function in disease prevention.

As part of the NRI, the successful postdoctoral researcher will have access to numerous resources available through the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Gillings School of Global Public Health and through the Departments of Nutrition. Furthermore, the NCRC state of the art research facilities allow for collaborations with faculty from schools across North Carolina studying a range of topics from genetics, epigenetics and gene expression regulation to human cognition, brain development, nutritional biochemistry and nutrigenomics.

Qualified applicants must have a PhD in biochemistry, cell biology or related disciplines; strong communication and data analysis skills; experience with animal and tissue handling and wet lab research; the ability to work independently or collaboratively.

Applicants with experience in such techniques as chromatin immunoprecipitation, immunohistochemistry, protein mass-spectrometry and proteomics are preferred.
