The Department of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) has an opening for a motivated and collegial Postdoctoral fellow in the laboratory of Dr. Tim Barnoud, which will join MUSC on November 1st. The Barnoud lab focuses on the p53 tumor suppressor, the most frequently mutated gene in human cancer. Specifically, the lab is seeking to understand the impact of genetic variants of p53 on cancer risk and response to therapy. A second goal of the Barnoud lab is to identify novel therapeutic strategies in gastrointestinal (GI) cancers, including pancreatic and liver cancer. The candidate should be highly motivated with a recent Ph.D. degree, or a Graduate Student about to receive a Ph.D. degree, with a solid background in molecular/cell biology and biochemistry. Experience with genetically engineered mouse models (GEMMs) is desirable but not necessary.
To apply, please use the application link provided, or send a cover letter outlining your research interests and career goals, CV with a list of publications, and the contact information of three references to firstname.lastname@example.org.
30% – Collaborates with the PI and other lab members involved to design and execute experiments using state-of-the-art genetically engineered mouse models, and cells prepared form these models, to study the role of p53 variants in cancer risk, with a focus on gastrointestinal (GI) cancers. These duties include genotyping of genetically-engineered mice and animal husbandry, in vivo experiments, including treatment studies, monitoring for development of disease, necropsies of experimental mice and in vitro studies, including preparing cells from the models, cell culture, molecular and functional genomic evaluation of gene expression and transcription factor binding to target genes, including, RNA-Seq, ChIP-Seq, and proteomics. – (Essential)
30% – Collaborates in collecting and analyzing data generated from the experiments. Duties include keeping accurate records on a daily basis, using appropriate software for analysis of data, and collaborating with Biostatistics and Bioinformatics Research Shared Resources to ensure quality of the results, interpreting results, and planning new experiments. – (Essential)
30% – Collaborates in preparing manuscripts and grants based on the experimental data generated. Duties include keeping current with the literature, preparing figures based on data collected, writing manuscripts and sections of grants with the PI and senior team members, presenting current work in research in progress seminars, attending departmental seminars and participating in journal clubs. – (Essential)
10% – Helps with laboratory maintenance and regulatory compliance, i.e., ordering, cleanup of lab areas, maintenance of equipment, helping to prepare IACUC protocols and amendments when appropriate. – (Essential)
