Postdoctoral Fellow in DNA Adducts and Repair

A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Natalie R. Gassman at the University of South Alabama Mitchell Cancer Institute (USA-MCI) in Mobile, AL, USA.

The laboratory is focused on examining how environmental exposures modulate DNA repair and has developed novel fluorescent methods for the detection and mapping of DNA adducts and epigenetic marks in cells. We are now applying this method to understanding how DNA adducts and repair influence the development and progression of cancer and are seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to spearhead this effort.  The approaches we use require experience with DNA repair enzymatic reaction, mammalian cell culture, cytotoxicity assays, immunofluorescence and immunohistochemistry techniques, and familiarity with fluorescent labeling chemistry, confocal microscopy, and enzymatic detection assays, such as TUNEL and ISEL.

To apply, please send your curriculum vitae to: environmentalexposures@gmail.com, with relevant publications demonstrating experience with the noted approaches, particularly immunohistochemistry, highlighted.

The Mitchell Cancer Institute is a highly interactive and collaborative research environment where interdisciplinary research approaches are utilized to help improve our understanding of cancer, its treatment, and its prevention.

Applications will be reviewed and evaluated on an ongoing basis.
