The Wistar Institute has an opening for an ambitious and productive Post-Doctoral Fellow to join the laboratory of Dr. Italo Tempera. We seek to recruit a highly motivated candidate to study how chromatin architecture regulates gene expression in the context of cancer. The successful candidate will use cutting-edge technologies, including Hi-C, ChIA-PET, and single-cell sequencing, to explore the function of epigenetic factors in chromatin architecture and how chromatin architecture changes contribute to human viral oncogenesis.

The successful candidate will work in a dynamic scientific environment with ample opportunities for interactions with leading investigators in virology, epigenetics, or cancer biology through programmatic funding mechanisms. 

Applicants must have a strong background in one or more of the following disciplines: virology, biochemistry, molecular and cellular biology, genome-wide approaches to cancer, or bioinformatics. Applicants with experience in tumor viruses, epigenetics, or genome-wide studies are strongly encouraged to apply.
