Lee Laboratory Postdoctoral Fellow Position in Gene Regulation and Chromatin Biology

By msequeira

About the Opportunity

We have an exciting opportunity for a postdoctoral fellow to unravel the secrets of cancer biology. The candidate should have a PhD or MD/PhD, and a strong foundation in transcription, epigenetics, RNA biology and genomics with demonstrated publications. The candidate will work independently to generate hypothesis and conduct experiments. The fellow will also train and supervise graduate students, fellows, and research technicians. The fellow will be expected to write manuscripts/grants and prepare figures for publication.

Interested applicants should submit a cover letter, CV, and references to:

David Y. Lee, MD, PhD
Assistant Professor, Radiation Oncology

About the Lee Laboratory

Our laboratory is engaged in elucidating the mechanisms by which transcription factors and their cofactors interact with chromatin, lncRNAs and other unknown molecules or pathways. We have both broad and specific interests in making unexpected connections with any field to develop novel targets for cancer treatment. Recently, we have identified several novel cofactors involved in estrogen receptor signaling which harbor histone-modifying activities including histone methylation and ubiquitylation. In addition, some of the factors interact with long non-coding RNAs, further developing an intriguing connection with protein-RNA field. We are poised to make significant progress in several of our research directions. We are looking for people who wants to change the world with the incredible tools and technologies we have, and ultimately make contributions in both advancing our understanding of basic science, and develop new treatments and cures for cancer patients.
