Postdoctoral Fellow (Non-coding RNAs and nuclear condensates in cancer), Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center, Georgetown University, Washington, D.C, USA.
We are inviting applications for a Postdoctoral Fellow position to study the role of non-coding RNAs and nuclear bodies (condensates) in gene regulation and cancer. The projects in the lab employ an array of experimental tools, including NGS-based chromatin analyses, high-resolution live-cell imaging, and proteomic approaches. Experience in live-cell microscopy, genomics methods, and molecular biology is preferred. Two potential research areas include;(1) the interaction between nuclear condensates and transcriptional enhancers in signal-activated gene programs and chromatin architecture using in vivo model systems (2) the Role of RNA-protein complexes in anti-cancer drug action and the development of chemoresistance.
Interested applicants should have a Ph.D. degree in biological sciences. Scientists with a background in applying cellular and molecular biology techniques to study cancer and aging are most preferred. Individuals will have opportunities to obtain training on computational tools to analyze imaging and genomics data. Applicants must have good quality, peer-reviewed publications as the first author in internationally recognized journals. Candidates will get dedicated mentorship and opportunities for scientific and professional growth. D.C, Maryland, Virginia triangle offers an outstanding scientific environment with a perfect blend of vibrant city life, great neighborhoods, and several top-ranked school districts. Georgetown University offers excellent benefits packages for individuals and families. The position is available immediately.
This is a full-time appointment. Salary commensurate with experience. Interested applicants should send (i) A brief statement of previous research experience and future research/career plans (ii) a Curriculum vitae with contact information of three referees by email to Dr. Sreejith Nair (firstname.lastname@example.org), Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center, Georgetown University.
