About the lab and the position
We are seeking a highly motivated Postdoc Research Associate to join the laboratory of Dr. Jun J. Yang in the Pharmaceutical Sciences Department at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Successful candidates will work on projects related to pharmacogenomics of nucleobase and nucleoside analog (NNA) drugs, supported by our new NIH R35 grant. This project is aimed to identify genetic variants associated with the metabolism and activity of a wide array of NNA drugs, both as anti-cancer and antiviral agents. Expanding upon our discovery of NUDT15 polymorphism as a major pharmacogenetic driver of thiopurine toxicity (Nat Genet 2016 48:367, PNAS 2020 117:5394), these studies will combine computational biology analyses of large clinical datasets with mechanistic work especially in large-scale
function genomic screen.
About St. Jude and benefits
As one of the premier pediatric research institutions in the world, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital provides exceptional resources and a supportive environment for career development. As a postdoctoral fellow, you will interact with leaders in cancer and translational research within and outside the institution and at national/international meetings. Innovative research will be supported by the infrastructure in our labs with the goal of providing postdocs flexibility and freedom to develop their research programs.
St. Jude provides a highly interactive and supportive environment for researchers’ career development and has been named to Glassdoor’s Best Places to Work 2018. St. Jude is a top-ranked hospital (#1 for pediatric cancer specialty in the U.S. in 2017) and a world-class basic research institute with 260+ faculty members. St. Jude postdoctoral fellows are provided with a highly competitive salary in an affordable city, a professional development allowance ($1,875), and an array of benefits, including sign-on bonus, health, dental and vision coverage, and a retirement program.
About the candidates
The successful applicant will have opportunities to develop new skills and work in a world-class scientific environment with full access to cutting-edge tools and technologies. This is an ideal opportunity for an enthusiastic experimental biologist to ask innovative questions in pharmacogenomics and then translate laboratory findings to genomics-based precision medicine while working in a lab with a strong track record of success.
