Postdoctoral Fellow Position in Radiation Oncology

Postdoctoral fellow position available in the Yu Lab in the Department of Radiation Oncology, Emory University School of Medicine and Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University for a highly motivated recent or soon to be graduate interested in obtaining postdoctoral training in basic/translational research in genome maintenance. The postdoctoral fellow will be involved in a project(s) involved in understanding how cells respond to DNA replication stress and more generally DNA damage, how this deregulation leads to development of disease, including cancer, and how this knowledge may be utilized for improvements in cancer prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. The Yu lab is well-funded with NIH/NCI, DOD, and foundation grants, has a strong track record of publishing in high impact journals, and is strongly committed to the career development of our trainees, including recent postdoctoral fellows who have transitioned to independent tenure-track faculty positions in academia. 

Candidates must have a PhD or MD/PhD degree. Competitive applicants will have experience in molecular biology, cell biology, biochemistry, and/or genetic methodologies and first author publications in well regarded scientific journals. 

Candidates who are eligible for NIH training grants are highly desired. A description of the lab is provided at: http://radiationoncology.emory.edu/research/lab/yu/. Emory University School of Medicine and The Winship Cancer Institute (WCI), a National Cancer Institute (NCI) designated comprehensive cancer center, provide an outstanding scientific environment for postdoctoral training. The Department of Radiation Oncology is currently ranked #5 in NIH funding amongst all radiation oncology departments nationally. Atlanta, GA offers arguably the highest quality living of any major US city with every big city amenity yet with affordability, culture and diversity, and warm weather.
