Postdoctoral Fellows in Cancer Epigenetics

The Whetstine Laboratory at the Fox Chase Cancer Center is hiring highly ambitious and self-motivated Postdoctoral Fellows in Cancer Epigenetics.  The laboratory uses state-of-the-art technologies and collaborations with leading scientists and clinicians to address the following areas: (1) the identification and characterization of epigenetic mechanisms driving DNA amplification and chromosomal rearrangement, therapeutic resistance and tumor heterogeneity; (2) the impact of cancer-associated epigenetic factor variants (mutations and germline) on drug responses; (3) the direct role of chromatin factors in regulating cell division, especially DNA replication; and (4) the impact epigenetic mechanisms have on immune therapy response and resistance. Some example publications addressing these areas of interest and laboratory approaches are: Black et al. (2010) Mol Cell; Black et al. (2013) Cell; Van Rechem et al. (2015) Cancer Discovery; Mishra et al. (2018) Cell; Clarke et al. (2020) Cancer Discovery; Van Rechem et al.
