Cancer Biology - Neuro-Oncology BranchPosted by: National Institutes of Health (NIH)
Posted date: 2020-Mar-04
A postdoctoral position is available in the Molecular and Cell Biology Section (https://ccr.cancer.gov/neuro-oncology-branch/chunzhang-yang) in Neuro-Oncology Branch (NOB), National Cancer Institute (NCI) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
The position is offered to explore the role of oncometabolite and molecular signaling in brain tumors. The research will involve a systematic investigation of the epigenetic changes in oncometabolite-driven cancers. Genetic and biochemical approaches will be employed to characterize the critical epigenetic targets among pathways of DNA repair, metabolism, and therapy resistance. The mechanistic findings will be verified through proof-of-concept investigation with the latest in vitro and in vivo models, as well as patient-derived specimens for validation. Experimental therapeutics are designed based on our preliminary findings, which provide strong justifications for future clinical translation and application.
Besides being a unique research opportunity in an emerging field with important basic/translational implications, our laboratory will support initiatives to strengthen the scientific career of postdoctoral trainees per the level and achievements demonstrated.Qualifications:
