Postdoctoral Fellow - Cancer biology, Epigenetics, Tumor microenvironment

The laboratory of Dr. Jennifer Isaacs at the Medical University of South Carolina is seeking highly motivated and enthusiastic postdoctoral fellows interested in cancer biology. Our group is focused on elucidating conserved mechanisms contributing to prostate tumor progression. We investigate how specific tumorigenic signaling pathways regulate cellular polarity, chromatin remodeling and the tumor microenvironment. Fellows will be engaged in translational projects and utilize multidisciplinary approaches (genetic/epigenetic, molecular, pharmacologic and in vivo modeling) to unravel key drivers of indolent to aggressive tumor growth.

Our lab is housed within a supportive and interactive well-equipped NCI-designated Cancer Center located minutes from downtown Charleston and nearby beaches. Prospective trainees can expect to experience a temperate climate with a reasonable cost of living.

Candidates should have a PhD in Biochemistry, Cell Biology, or a related field, with relevant first authored publications in peer reviewed journals. Preference will be given to recent graduates eligible for NIH funding opportunities. Salary will be commensurate with experience. Qualified candidates should send a CV and cover letter outlining research interests, career goals, lab skills, and contact information for three referees to isaacsj@musc.edu.
