One Postdoctoral Associate position is available in the lab of Dr. Tao Wu in the Department of Molecular & Human Genetics at Baylor College of Medicine ( ). The Wu lab focuses on the epigenetic mechanisms of cancer therapeutic resistance; in particular, the functional mechanisms of novel DNA and RNA modifications (such as 6mA). We seek to decipher the epigenetic driver mechanisms underlying cancer treatment resistance, to define new biomarkers, and to develop new approaches to bypass the therapeutic resistance. We apply multiple wet lab techniques, as well as dry lab genomic profiling and bioinformatics approaches in cancer research.

We are seeking a Postdoctoral Associate whose research will focus on cancer biology.  This position will study the epigenetic mechanisms underlying cancer acquired drug-resistance and the epigenetic functional mechanisms in the cancer-immunity cross-talk. Training background should be on molecular biology, cell biology, cancer biology.
