Postdoctoral positions in cancer epigenetics are available in the laboratory of Dr. Rui Lu at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB). The lab is interested in understanding epigenetic mechanisms underlying cancer development and developing targeted treatment strategies, with an emphasize on blood cancers such as acute myeloid leukemia. Using cellular, molecular and genomic approaches, our research focus on (1) understanding the molecular basis of driver mutations in cancer; (2) discovery of novel targets for cancer epigenetic therapies; (3) development of new epigenome editing tools to study gene regulation in normal and cancer cells. Please visit our website www.lu-lag.org to learn more about our research.
We are looking for researchers passionate in epigenetics, genomics, and cancer biology to join our team. Priority will be given to candidates who have prior experience in deep sequencing data analysis and/or experience in animal models. Candidates should have an MD or PhD degree or should be close to obtaining their doctoral degree. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to establish multidisciplinary collaborations and develop state-of-the-art genetic (CRISPR/Cas9, genome-wide screening) and genomic (ChIP-seq, ATAC-seq, Hi-C, and WGBS) technologies. UAB offers a competitive salary with excellent benefits package.
UAB is currently ranked as the #1 Young U.S. University by Times Higher Education, and #1 U.S. University for Postdoctoral Fellows by The Scientist. It is ranked #20 of all U.S. institutions in annual NIH funding. UAB Comprehensive Cancer Center is one of the nation’s leading cancer research and treatment centers, ranked at #25 in the US by US News for 2020-2021. It is one of the original eight cancer centers in the country that earned the prestigious National Cancer Institute “comprehensive” cancer center designation in 1971. UAB’s cancer services are routinely recognized as being among the nation’s best.
Interested applicants should apply directly to firstname.lastname@example.org by sending (1) a cover letter summarizing research interests and accomplishments, (2) a complete CV with a publication list, and (3) contact information for three references.
