Summary of the Fellowship:
The Hong Lab (www.thehonglab.org) is seeking a highly-motivated individual to study the genomes, epigenomes and transcriptomes of pediatric cancers. In the lab, we use computational biology (e.g., whole genome, ATAC-seq, RNA-seq and single cell) along with functional genomics (e.g., CRISPR-Cas9 or ORF). We study kidney and brain cancers such as Wilms Tumor and cancers involving the SWI/SNF chromatin modifying complex such as Renal Medullary Carcinoma, Rhabdoid Tumor and Atypical Teratoid/ Rhabdoid Tumor.
Our research laboratory is located within the Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders Center at Emory University and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta in the Health Science Research Building. Fellows will have access to resources within the Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders Center, the Winship Cancer Institute, the Pediatric Research Alliance along with collaborators at Georgia Institute of Technology.
Funding for positions has been secured and will come initially from grants and institutional funds (e.g., Department of Defense, American Cancer Society and Emory University) but grant writing will be expected.
