A post-doctoral position is available in the Cell & Molecular Biology Section to study mechanisms of epigenetic dysregulation in pediatric neuroectodermal tumors. The broad goal of the laboratory is to study mechanisms of differentiation and how they are dysregulated in embryonal cancers with an eye towards developing novel therapeutic strategies based on an understanding of tumor biology. Current projects are mechanisms of regulation of EZH2 in neuroblastoma and mESC reprogramming by tumor suppressors.
Candidates must have a PhD or equivalent and no more than 5 years of post-doctoral experience. Individuals with a strong background in molecular biology and experience in chromatin biology are encouraged to apply.
