Epigenetic and Genetic Modifications in CancerPosted by: National Institutes of Health (NIH)
Posted date: 2017-Mar-17
The Taylor Lab is interested in how inherited and acquired DNA modification affects health and disease. The group has generated extensive epigenome-wide DNA methylation data and genetic data to investigate how age, life course, and exposure interact to affect epigenetic changes that influence cancer risk. These studies make use of large existing collections of samples from epidemiologic studies of breast, prostate, lung, and bladder cancers. The position is in the Molecular and Genetic Epidemiology Section within the Epigenetic and Stem Cell Biology Laboratory and has close ties and opportunities for joint appointment within the Epidemiology Branch.
Candidates should have a Ph.D., M.D. or equivalent degree in molecular biology, cell biology, biochemistry, genetics, or related field. Applicant must have less than 5 years of postdoctoral research experience. Recent graduates are encouraged to apply. NIH offers excellent salary and health care packages to its trainees.
