Postdoctoral Position in Cancer Biology and Epigenetics

Postdoctoral Research Associate position is available immediately to study mechanisms of epigenetic regulation in cancer. The goal of this research is to build upon our recent findings demonstrating endogenously produced free radicals can function as epigenetic regulators (Journal of Biological Chemistry 2013, PMID:23546878). The project will investigate how dysregulation of posttranslational histone modifications result in tumor-associated phenotypic changes. The project will utilize novel in vivo and in vitro models along with biochemical, imaging, molecular biological, and gene array techniques. Qualifications: Ph.D. in Biology/Biochemistry or a related field and experience in cell and molecular biology. The ability to write and edit manuscripts/grants, execute and analyze an independent research project and exceptional verbal and written communication skills will be required. Protein biochemistry, animal experience, and knowledge of bioinformatics along with a background in cancer biology are preferred.
