Postdoctoral Scholar in epitranscriptomics and epigenetics in cancer
Postdoctoral position available in the laboratory of Yu-Ying He, PhD, at the University of Chicago. We seek to recruit a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to investigate the regulatory and functional mechanisms of epitranscriptomics and epigenetics in tumor development, progression, and therapeutic response (See our recent publications: https://www.nature.com/articles/s41467-019-10669-0; https://www.nature.com/articles/s41467-021-22469-6; https://www.pnas.org/node/998188.abstract?collection=). We are particularly interested in, but not limited to, the role of RNA/DNA modifications in genomic stability and inflammation in tumorigenesis and therapeutic response in cells and animal models.
Applicants must have a recent Ph.D. or equivalent degree in the biological sciences. Demonstrated expertise in molecular, cellular, and biochemical techniques, is preferred. Experience with mammalian cell culture, microscopy, immunoassays, molecular biology, animal models, and/or systems analysis of molecular interactions is desirable. Highly motivated individuals with excellent communication skills and the ability to work effectively within a research team are encouraged to apply.
Applicants should submit curriculum vitae, a cover letter stating research interests and career goals, and names and contact information (addresses, telephone numbers, email addresses) of three references to Yu-Ying He at firstname.lastname@example.org.
