The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center Postdoctral Position

New postdoctoral positions are open in a cancer research laboratory located within The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. The lab currently studies energy sensing and metabolism in cancer (see our publications, Nature Cell Biology 2016; Nature Cell Biology 2015; Cancer Research. 2014; Oncogene. 2014; Nature. 2011; Cancer Cell. 2010; PNAS. 2008). The lab is well funded to support various projects related to the research topics described above. The new postdoc will be supported by a recently funded NCI R01 grant (for the list of funded grants, see the lab website at http://faculty.mdanderson.org/Boyi_Gan/Default.asp).

The putative postdoc researcher will be working on the role of long intergenic non-coding RNAs (for example, see “Liu X, et al, Gan B. lncRNA NBR2 engages a metabolic checkpoint by regulating AMPK under energy stress. Nature Cell Biology. 2016, http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26999735) and other novel tumor suppressors in cancer metabolism with a particular emphasis of using emerging metabolic technologies to study cancer metabolism. Qualified candidates should have strong background in one or more of the following areas: molecular/cell biology, biochemistry, metabolism, cancer genetics. Experience in using Mass Spectrometry-related technologies to study metabolism is highly desirable. We prefer candidates who are about to graduate with PhD or MD/PhD degree, or have graduated within the last 12 months. A track record of excellent first author publication during PhD training is essential. The pay scale follows NIH guidelines ($47,484 for fresh PhD with adjustment fo!
r more senior candidates).

MD Anderson is the number one cancer center in cancer care in the United States by the U.S.News and World Report’s “America’s Best Hospitals” survey. It ranks 1st in the number of awarded grants from National Cancer Institute. It offers active graduate and postdoctoral training programs and the unmatched scientific environment of the Texas Medical Center, the world’s largest biomedical center. MD Anderson is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer. Houston is the 4th largest city in the United States with relatively low living cost and no state or city income tax.

The interested candidates should send a CV to bgan@mdanderson.org.

Thomas Jefferson University ポスドク募集

Postdoctoral Researcher Positions on Small RNA Biology at Thomas Jefferson University

Postdoctoral researcher positions are available in the lab of Dr. Yohei Kirino at Computational Medicine Center (CMC)/Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology in Thomas Jefferson University (TJU). We study the biogenesis pathway and function of small non-coding RNAs in the pathogenesis of various human diseases such as breast/prostate cancers and asthma (e.g., hormone-dependent tRNA-derived RNAs: PNAS 2015) by utilizing originally-developed RNA sequencing/quantification methods (e.g., YAMAT-seq: NAR in press; cP-RNA-seq: Nat Protoc 2016; Dumbbell-PCR: NAR 2015; FL-PCR: RNA Biol 2015). For more information about the Kirino lab, please see the websites at http://www.jefferson.edu/university/research/researcher/researcher-faculty/kirino-laboratory.html and https://cm.jefferson.edu/staff-members/yohei-kirino/.

Highly-motivated individuals with strong background in RNA biology and/or molecular/cell biology are awaited. Applicants should have a Ph. D. degree, a productive track record, and a high writing and communication skills. The successful applicant will have a unique opportunity to work in close collaboration within CMC (https://cm.jefferson.edu/) and with other research groups in TJU and UPENN.

Applicants should send 1) a cover letter with a description of past research experience, 2) CV, 3) a statement of research interests and career goals, and 4) contact information of 3 references to Dr. Yohei Kirino at Yohei.Kirino@jefferson.edu.
