The Wang Lab at MD Anderson Cancer Center is recruiting postdoctoral fellows to investigate how chromatin modifications at DNA double strand breaks regulate DNA repair and transcription and how chromosome instability promotes tumor development. We use functional and molecular approaches that involve imaging, CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing, genetics screens, high throughput sequencing, mass spectrometry, mouse models, etc. Highly motivated individuals are encouraged to apply. Please email the following application packet to Dr. Wang.
- Curriculum Vitae
- A brief description of your research interests
- Three letters of reference
The Texas Medical Center in Houston houses MD Anderson and multiple other top-flight scientific institutions within walking distance (Baylor College of Medicine; UT Health Science Center; Rice University; Methodist Research Institute; TX A&M Institute of Biosciences and Technology), or within bicycling distance (U Houston). This immense depth of collaborators/ programs/ cores insures a cutting-edge research/ ideas environment. Houston boasts a diverse culture near the Gulf Coast, and affordable living in our nation’s fourth largest city. MD Anderson offers well-regarded professional development opportunities and benefits. This is an NIH pay-scale position.
The Wang Lab is actively recruiting graduate students interested in genetics, epigenetics and DNA damage signaling. Students are always welcome to join us for a rotation in the lab, and are encouraged to contact Dr. Wang to discuss the current active projects in the laboratory.
