Postdoctoral Position in Gene Regulation and Genomics

Job Summary: A fully-funded postdoctoral position is available in the NCI-Designated Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The incumbent will perform high impact research, funded by the National Cancer Institute, related to a broad array of topics, including signaling, gene regulation, and genome function, especially in the areas of chromatin, transcription, epigenetics and RNA biology. We are particularly interested in studying the formation and function of transcriptional enhancers and the non-coding RNAs that are actively produced at enhancers, known as enhancer RNAs, that are involved in modulating several aspects of gene regulation. In addition, we aim to understand how transcriptional enhancers help orchestrate responses to external stimuli found in the tumor microenvironment. The research goals will be addressed in an interdisciplinary way by combining using state-of-the-art molecular and cellular techniques with powerful proteomic, genomic and computational approaches.

Required Qualifications: Candidates must have a Ph.D. degree with a strong background in cellular biology, molecular biology, genetics and/or genomics and must have first author publications in internationally recognized journals. We especially value motivated, creative, and collaborative team members. For more information visit thefrancolab.org
