Two postdoctoral positions are available immediately for highly motivated candidates to join a dynamic research team studying the molecular biology and biochemistry of hormone-dependent tumors in the laboratory of Dr. Thomas G. Boyer in Department of Molecular Medicine at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio (San Antonio, Texas). One position will focus on the pathogenesis of uterine leiomyomas (uterine fibroids), with an emphasis on the genetic and epigenetic factors that drive myometrial stem cell transformation leading to uterine fibroid formation. We are also interested in the development of new pharmacological therapies for the treatment of uterine fibroids. Another position will focus on the genetic and epigenetic basis of advanced prostate cancer, with an emphasis on castration resistant disease. These postdoctoral positions offer a unique opportunity to conduct research in a vibrant scientific environment.

Requirements include a Doctoral degree in the biological sciences or related scientific disciplines with relevant lab experience in molecular cell biology/biochemistry. A background in cancer biology and epigenetics is preferred but not essential. These positions are open and available immediately with a flexible start date. Note that these postdoctoral positions will not have a faculty title. All Postdoctoral appointments are designated as security sensitive positions. The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio is an Equal Employment Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer including protected veterans and persons with disabilities.

Please submit a cover letter, CV, brief description of scientific accomplishments, and three reference letters to Dr. Thomas G. Boyer at boyer@uthscsa.edu.
