Postdoctoral Position at UC San Diego Regenerative Medicine: Cancer Stem Cells and Epitranscriptomics

A postdoctoral researcher opportunity is available for a highly motivated individual to investigate the malignant reprogramming of hematopoietic stem cells into cancer stem cells (CSCs). Our lab focuses on the epitranscriptome diversity driven by RNA modifications in CSCs. The goal of the lab is to elucidate molecular mechanisms, identify biomarkers, and translate the findings into targeted therapeutics to eliminate CSCs (Choi, et al. Cell Stem Cell. 2018; Jamieson, et al. Cell Stem Cell. 2018; Lazzari, et al, Nat Commun. 2017; Jiang, et al. Nat Rev Cancer. 2017; Crews, et al. Cell Stem Cell. 2016). We are seeking an energetic and passionate researcher with experience in molecular and cell biology to join our team to do bench-to-bedside research. UC San Diego provides an exceptionally rich academic environment for trainees. The successful candidate will have expertise in molecular biology, cell culture, protein chemistry, flow cytometry, and in vivo leukemia mouse models. Applicants should send a cover letter containing statement of motivation and research interests, CV, name and contact details of three referees to Dr. Catriona Jamieson c/o alidstrom@ucsd.edu
