Postdoctoral position available in DNA repair and genome instability
The laboratory of Dr. Greg Ira in the Department of Molecular and Human Genetics at the Baylor College of Medicine seeks goal-oriented, collaborative, highly motivated postdocs to study the mechanisms of genome instability, DNA repair and recombination. Our research interests range from the fundamental basic molecular mechanisms of DNA repair, recombination and replication in model organisms and human to diverse clinical applications including cancer therapeutics. To decipher the mechanisms of DNA repair we develop and employ genetic, molecular, functional genomics, and next generation sequencing assays. We also maintain close collaborations with biochemists and cancer biologists to complement our genetic approaches.
Baylor College of Medicine located in Houston, Texas is among the largest biomedical research institutions in the nation and is part of the Texas Medical Center, the largest medical complex in the world. Our lab is a member of the highly interactive and collaborative Genome Instability Group comprised of an outstanding community of 20 laboratories across the medical campus with a shared interest in DNA repair. Our laboratory has a strong track record in training students and postdoctoral fellows to become highly successful independent group leaders in academia and industry.
We encourage applicants with relevant experience in microbiology, genetics, cell biology, molecular biology or relevant fields to join our team. We encourage applications from underrepresented minorities.
Interested candidates should submit a current CV, a cover letter describing research experience, interests, and motivation for joining the Ira lab, and contact information of three references.Job Duties
