PhD Fellowship

Postdoctoral fellowship to study crosstalk mechanisms between oncogenic signaling and epigenetic regulation within the context of tumor progression. The laboratory of Dr. Jennifer Isaacs at the Medical University of South Carolina is seeking highly motivated postdoctoral fellows committed to unraveling conserved mechanisms of tumor progression, particularly in breast and prostate cancers. Fellows will utilize multidisciplinary approaches (genetic/epigenetic, molecular, pharmacologic and proteomic) to define the mechanisms by which key epigenetic effectors transmit oncogenic signals to support cancer progression.
