Postdoctoral Fellow, Craniofacial Anomalies and Regeneration Section, Division of Intramural Research

Position Description

A postdoctoral research position is currently available in the Craniofacial Anomalies and Regeneration Section directed by Dr. Janice Lee, DDS, MD, MS, at the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research. The successful candidate will work on clinical data and mouse models to study the pathogenesis of craniofacial anomalies in rare diseases. The animal models will further be used to elucidate the molecular and cellular mechanisms that lead to alterations in normal craniofacial development. The project involves various techniques that include micro-CT, histology, immunohistochemistry, confocal microscopy, bulk RNA-Seq analysis, scRNA-Seq analysis, among other techniques.


Candidates must hold a PhD, MD/PhD or DDS/PhD degree with expertise relevant to the research area. Prior experience with craniofacial research and bioinformatics is preferred. Excellent oral and written communication should be evidenced by a record of research publications and presentations.

To Apply

Send an email to Dr. Olivier Duverger  , Staff Scientist in the Craniofacial Anomalies and Regeneration Section.

  • The first correspondence should include a full CV and a cover letter.
  • If pre-selected, candidates will be contacted at a later time and asked to provide three letters of recommendation.

DHHS and NIH are Equal Opportunity Employers.
