Post-doctoral Position, Winkler Laboratory, NCI

A post-doctoral position is immediately available in Dr. Cheryl Winkler’s laboratory at the National Cancer Institute in Frederick, Maryland. The laboratory investigates genetic susceptibility to kidney disease and the functional consequence of genetic variants. We are particularly interested in the identification of genetic variants that affect penetrance of APOL1 renal risk variants using bioinformatics and admixture mapping approaches. A second project involves the identification of variants associated with primary steroid resistant FSGS and HIV-associated FSGS in pediatric patients from South Africa and East Africa.  Please see RFA for details.
