Postdoctoral Associate positions (Bioinformatics and Cancer Cell Biology) are available to study the role of non-coding RNAs (long noncoding RNA and microRNAs) in our laboratory at Sanford-Burnham Medical Discovery Institute, Orlando FL USA. Several putative oncogenic and tumor suppressor non-coding RNAs have been identified ( Lee et al Science Advances 2017 3(5): e1602505, Mazar et al Mol. Cell. Biol. 2016, Wei et al., JID 2016) and will characterize these through in-vitro and in-vivo functional and analytical genomics and single cell sequencing assays to connect them to cancer metabolism and epigenome.
The Ph.D. and/or M.D. Cancer Cell Biology candidate must have a strong background in at least one of the following areas: tumor biology, cell biology, molecular biology, transcriptional/post-transcriptional gene regulation, and experience in in vivo mouse studies. Interested and qualified candidates should submit their CV, cover letter and list of references to Ms. Debbie McFadden at email@example.com.
