Prostate Cancer Epigenetics and Genomics (368)

Two postdoctoral positions are currently available in the Research Group of Ram Mani, Ph.D., in the Pathology Department. We are seeking highly motivated candidates with a background in cancer biology, epigenetics, chromatin biology, DNA repair, and/or genomics. The research focus is in the area of prostate cancer epigenetics and genomics. We are interested in understanding the epigenetic signatures of prostate cancer development with an emphasis on mechanisms of treatment resistance. We are also interested in studying the molecules and pathways underlying the formation of genomic rearrangements in cancer, with a major focus on ETS gene fusions. We employ state-of-the-art molecular-biology and cell-biology tools, next-generation sequencing methods like ChIP-Seq, custom capture sequencing, in addition to in vivo experiments to address these scientific questions. For additional information on our research, see Science (2009 #PMID: 19933109), Cancer Cell (2010 #PMID:20478527), Nature Reviews Genetics (2010 #PMID:21045868), Cancer Research (2011 #PMID:21676887).

Applicants must hold a Ph.D., and/or M.D. in biological sciences or other related disciplines and have a strong publication record. Experience with bioinformatics is a plus.

Neuronal Cell Death Research (353)

The Pathology Department at UT Southwestern Medical Center is recruiting for two postdoctoral positions to be filled January 2015 in the laboratory of Yingfei Wang, Ph.D., to study neuronal cell death after acute brain injury. We will use a combination of tools, including epigenomics, bioinformatics, proteomics, and mouse genetics, to study the molecular mechanism of PARP-1-dependent cell death (parthanatos) by focusing on the newly identified parthanatos-dependent AIF-associated nuclease (PAAN1) in acute brain injury. The project is supported by NIH grant. UTSW offers an excellent working environment and competitive benefits package.

Requirements: Candidates must have a Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. degree in biological sciences or other related disciplines. A strong background in molecular biology, biochemistry, and animal models of global or focal ischemic stroke is desired.
