The laboratory of Dr. Italo Tempera at the Fels Institute for Cancer Research and Molecular Biology at Temple University School of Medicine, Philadelphia, PA, USA has an opening for a postdoctoral position to study the role of 3D chromatin architecture in regulating Epstein-Barr Virus gene expression. This project combines ChIP-seq, RNA-seq and Hi-C experiments with bioinformatic data analysis to determine how viral chromatin architecture regulates EBV gene expression and EBV-induced cell transformation. (For more info visit the following link Lab Info).
The successful candidate will possess a background in bioinformatics and Hi-C data analysis and be highly motivated and collaborative. The postdoctoral fellow is expected to actively contribute to the research plan and to the preparation of publications and grants.
The candidate should have a Ph.D. in Virology, Biochemistry, Molecular or Cell Biology, or related fields. Candidates with an experience in EBV or other cancer-associated viruses, chromatin and epigenetics, ChIP-seq or genome-wide studies are strongly encouraged to apply. Additional preference will be given to applicants with strong communication skills and high level of written and spoken English. Salary follows NIH guidelines.
To apply please submit a CV, cover letter and three letters of recommendation to email@example.com and specify “Application for Postdoctoral Position”. Potential candidate will be contacted in November and the position start date will be between January 1 and February 28, 2020.
