A postdoctoral fellow position is available after September, 2021 in the laboratory of Dr. Jia-Ray Yu, located at the Virginia Tech research facilities in the newly established Research & Innovation Campus of Children’s National Medical Center in Washington DC. We are interested in the fundamental mechanisms of how epigenetic and chromatin dysregulation contribute to the oncogenic states in cancer (Lee and Yu et al, Mol Cell; Lee and Yu et al, G&D; Yu et al, G&D; Yu et al, Sci Adv). Our approach integrates biochemical & reconstituted systems, mass-spectrometry, next-generation sequencing, and molecular/cell biology tools.
Postdoctoral trainees will have opportunities to work with interdisciplinary research groups with expertise in chemical biology, structural biology, single-molecule imaging, or preclinical animal models from Virginia Tech, Children’s National, and institutions within the metro Washington DC area, such as the NIH. The lab supports postdoctoral trainees for having a healthy work and life balance in the culturally vibrant metro Washington, DC area.
A PhD in biochemistry, biophysics, bioengineering, genetics, molecular biology, cell biology, cancer biology or broadly related fields.
Proficiency in basic laboratory techniques such as cloning, basic molecular/cell biology and tissue culture techniques.
Experience in protein purification, biochemical assays, or human pluripotent/neural stem cell culture is preferred but not required.
To express interest in applying: please email the following materials in a single PDF file to Dr. Yu (firstname.lastname@example.org)
A 1-2 page cover letter explaining your previous research experience, the questions that interest you for future postdoctoral studies, and why you feel our lab can be a fit for you.
A detailed C.V.
Names and contact information of three references.
