Mechanisms of Oncogenic Transcription Factors in Prostate and Renal Carcinoma
Posted by: Postdoc positions by NIH
Posted date: 2018-May-09
Seeking to hire a postdoctoral fellow in Peter Hollenhorst's lab in the Medical Sciences Program at Indiana University. Our group focuses on specificity mechanisms that allow some transcription factors to be oncogenic, while other, similar transcription factors are not. The post-doctoral researcher would explore specific oncogenic mechanisms of transcription factors that promote prostate cancer and renal cell carcinoma. Primary techniques used will include molecular biology, genomics and bioinformatics (including execution and interpretation of RNA-seq, ChIP-seq, etc.), and functional assays in cell lines. We also utilize biochemical methods including protein purification to assay transcription factor functions.
Applicants should have a PhD and/or MD with strong laboratory and analytical skills. Experience with molecular and cellular biology techniques, genomics, and bioinformatics is desirable, but most important is the ability to work independently to produce high-quality data and being enthusiastic about gaining more expertise.
