Baylor University Medical Centerポスドク募集

以前の私の留学先であるBaylor University Medical Center, Center for Epigenetics, Cancer Prevention and Cancer Genomicsでポスドクを募集しています。ヒト消化器癌検体を使ったゲノム、エピゲノム解析を中心としたプロジェクトです。以下にPI (Dr. Ajay Goel) からの募集内容を添付致しますので、興味のある方は直接Dr. Goelにコンタクトをとって下さい。又は私の方のメール頂いても結構です。

Postdoctoral Fellow: Cancer Genetics and Epigenetics
Two postdoctoral positions are available for immediate recruitment for a highly motivated candidate to join a team of researchers at the Baylor Research Institute and Charles A Sammons Cancer Center, Baylor University Medical Center, Dallas, TX, USA. The laboratory headed by Dr. Ajay Goel, PhD and C. Richard Boland, MD, focuses on understanding the interplay between genetic, epigenetic and alterations in noncoding RNAs in gastrointestinal cancers.

This position involves studies surrounding work in the field of epigenetics and noncoding RNA research. More specifically, the projects will involve;

a) Exploration of the role of DNA methylation, histone modifications and non-coding RNAs (miRNA, lncRNAs, snoRNAs etc.) in gastrointestinal cancers.
b) Establishment of innovative methodologies for the development of epigenetic and non-coding RNAs-based biomarkers for the earlier diagnosis, prognosis and predictive responses to chemotherapy in gastrointestinal neoplasia.
c) A better understanding of the translational and clinical role of genetic and epigenetic signatures in gastrointestinal cancers.

An ideal candidate should have a strong background in molecular biology, and relevant experience in cancer genetics and epigenetics. The candidates with prior hands-on experience in NGS-based platforms (Ion Torrent PGM sequencer, MiSeq, HiSeq, RRBS, ChIP-Seq, MeDip and RNASeq etc.), and array-based platforms will be given preference. Knowledge and experience with various bioinformatics and biostatistical analysis tools will be highly preferred. Postdocs are expected to develop projects along their preferred interests and to collaborate with others internally and externally. Postdocs will be highly encouraged to obtain extramural funding as a cornerstone of professional growth.
Minimum Requirements: The candidate should possess the following criteria: 1) PhD, MD/PhD 2) Evidence of first author peer-reviewed publications, 3) Prior molecular and/or cancer biology experience and evidence of project development, 4) Excellent communication and writing skills. Prospective candidates should be highly motivated, enthusiastic about science, with an ability to think creatively and independently.
To Apply: The position is available for 2-3 years with potential for extension. Salary is commensurate with experience. Interested candidates should submit a CV and cover letter summarizing your Qualifications, Research Interests and Career Goals, and describe your specific interest in our lab. Include the names and contact information of 3 references and send via email to:
