Lab Opportunities

Graduate Studies

First year graduate students interested in a lab rotation during 2017 - 2018 are encouraged to directly sandeep.burma@utsouthwestern.edu.

Postdoctoral Training

Two postdoctoral positions are available starting in Fall 2016.

Potential projects include:

  • Elucidating the role of EXO1 in DNA damage signaling and repair
  • Understanding how specific DNA repair pathways act as barriers to brain tumor development
  • Developing strategies to target DNA repair pathways in order to potentiate glioblastoma therapy

Studies will be carried out using well-established in vitro and in vivo models, including genetically engineered mouse models of glioblastoma. These projects are supported by funding from NCI and NASA.

The appropriate candidate should be a recent Ph.D. with a strong background in cell and molecular biology. Prior experience in the field of DNA repair or extensive experience with mouse cancer models would be highly desirable.

Please sandeep.burma@utsouthwestern.edu a cover letter detailing career goals along with a CV and names of three referees to the PI.
