THE OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY COLLEGE OF PHARMACY
POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCHER IN PROSTATE CANCER GENOMICS 

An exciting opportunity is available immediately to work on the genomics and epigenomics of prostate cancer in the lab of Dr. Moray J Campbell at the Ohio State University, College of Pharmacy.

The major focus of the lab is to define how the epigenome is distorted in cancer progression and to dissect the consequences on transcription factor function and tumor outcome. Specifically, we aim to study the cancer epigenome from a translational perspective by leveraging understanding from wet and dry lab approaches. The goal of this research is to define prostate cancer with greater precision for therapeutic targeting. Strategic collaborations with population scientists, clinician scientists and computational biologists add translational impact to the research.

The successful applicant will have experience in standard cell and molecular biology techniques as well as chromatin biology experience, and also an ability to undertake ChIP-Seq and similar NGS approaches. The ideal candidate will also have some ability to undertake analyses of high dimensional biological data or an interest in the computational analyses of such data, and enthusiasm to begin to learn such approaches.

A Ph.D. in a relevant field is required. Interested individuals should email the following documents to Campbell.1933@osu.edu

  • a curriculum vitae,
  • contact names of three referees,
  • a 1 page personal statement of background and interests.  

Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.  The Ohio State University is an equal opportunity employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation or identity, national origin, disability status, or protected veteran status.
