    Opportunity: Biologist Postdoctoral Scholar (#91215) @ Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory -- Berkeley, CA (US)
    Submitted by Bill Cannan; posted on Tuesday, October 06, 2020

    Lawrence Berkeley National Lab's (LBNL, Environmental Genomics & Systems Biology Division ( has an opening for a Biologist Postdoctoral Scholar to join the team.


    In this exciting role, you will be involved in on-going gene enhancer studies in the joint Mammalian Functional Genomics Laboratory of Axel Visel, Len Pennacchio, and Diane Dickel. You will develop and apply methods to experimentally examine the role of enhancers and other noncoding functional elements in human biology and disease. You will contribute to the design and execution of in vitro and mouse studies aimed at the identification and functional characterization of enhancers in the human genome.

    What You Will Do:
    • Perform laboratory experiments including molecular biology and mouse experiments.
    • Perform computational analysis of complex datasets in collaboration with computational biologists.
    • Provide regular progress report presentations at lab meetings.
    • Summarize results in reports and papers submitted for publication and present analysis results at national and international scientific meetings.
    • Interact with other postdocs to develop and guide projects.
    • Contribute specialized skills to ongoing projects led by other investigators as appropriate.
    • Keep an accurate and detailed laboratory notebook.
    Additional Responsibilities as Needed:
    • Participate in professional scientific activities, e.g., reviews of papers, research proposals, etc.
    • Support and contribute to the development of research project ideas and proposals.
    • Participate in relevant professional societies with relevance to the program and group activities.


    What Is Required:
    • Ph.D. degree in molecular biology, genetics, genomics, developmental biology, or a related field.
    • Experimental skills in standard methods of molecular biology and genomics (e.g., PCR, sequencing, qPCR, RT-PCR, cloning, CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing, ChIP-seq/RNA-seq) and experience in genetics and biochemistry.
    • Basic skills in bioinformatics and computational genome analysis.
    • Demonstrated capability to design, execute, and analyze experimental studies.
    • Ability to organize and present reports to collaborators, management, and sponsors.
    • Ability to work independently and as a team member in a diverse team environment.
    • Ability to interact with workgroups and collaborators outside of the laboratory.
    • Experience and skill in preparing research publications with a proven record of publications demonstrating independent research.
    Additional Desired Qualifications:
    • Prior experience with experimental rodent work, including husbandry and phenotyping.
    • Familiarity and/or demonstrated experience with single-cell transcriptomics and epigenomics methods.


    • This is a full-time, 2 year, postdoctoral appointment exempt (monthly paid) from overtime pay with the possibility of renewal based upon satisfactory job performance, continuing availability of funds, and ongoing operational needs. You must have less than 3 years of paid postdoctoral experience. Salary for Postdoctoral positions depends on years of experience post-degree.
    • This position is represented by a union for collective bargaining purposes.
    • This position may be subject to a background check. Any convictions will be evaluated to determine if they directly relate to the responsibilities and requirements of the position. Having a conviction history will not automatically disqualify an applicant from being considered for employment.


    • Salary will be predetermined based on postdoctoral step rates.
    • Working at Berkeley Lab has many rewards including a competitive compensation program, excellent health and welfare programs, a retirement program that is second to none, and outstanding development opportunities.
