Postdoctoral Research Scholar at Boston University
Research Position in Cancer Biology
A postdoctoral position is available in cancer biology in the Department of Dermatology at Boston University School of Medicine. The postdoctoral associate will lead multidisciplinary projects aimed at understanding the epigenetic basis for skin cancer and other skin diseases.
Our research group uses chemical/genetic approaches, genetically engineered mouse models, patient samples, and computational biology to study the epigenetic/genetic mechanisms by which human melanomas acquire plasticity, develop resistant to therapy, and ultimately contribute to cancer mortality.
We seek qualified individuals who are highly motivated, flexible, collaborative, detail-oriented, and possess a strong commitment to research excellence. The successful candidate should have a PhD with a strong background in molecular biology, cell biology, chromatin biology, genomics, and/or biochemistry. Research experience in bioinformatics skills and animal models would be advantageous. The postdoctoral associate is expected to have a strong work ethic, critical thinking abilities, and excellent organization and communication skills.
Please forward a cover letter, CV, and the names/addresses of 3 references to: firstname.lastname@example.org
