Join Our Lab
The Tainer Laboratory at MD Anderson is actively recruiting motivated postdoctoral fellows and graduate students interested in advanced research in mechanistic structural biochemistry and biology, molecular and cellular oncology and cancer epigenetics and biology.
MD Anderson offers superb professional development opportunities and benefits. The Texas Medical Center 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). This unique and immense depth of collaborators/programs/cores/technologies/expertise ensures an unbeatable cutting-edge research environment. Houston boasts a diverse and vibrant culture near the Gulf Coast, and surprisingly affordable living with all the advantages that come from being our nation’s fourth largest city and without the disadvantages of the larger ones.
Postdoctoral fellow positions are available in the Tainer Laboratory to study DNA damage responses and their links to epigenetics, immune responses and oncology. Highly motivated individuals who have recently obtained a Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. and have a strong interest in mechanistic structural biology, molecular biology, cell biology or related fields, are encouraged to apply. As one PDF or word file, please email the following information to Prof. John Tainer at JTainer@mdanderson.org:
- Cover letter or email stating your general career objectives and research interests
- NIH-Biosketch or CV
- Names and contact information of three references
