Positions of two postdoctoral scientists are open now in the Chen laboratory. Our group is interested in discovering novel genetic and epigenetic regulations and deciphering their underlying molecular mechanisms in normal developmental processes (e.g., hematopoiesis) and tumorigenesis (e.g., leukemogenesis). We cover research areas with relevance to Hematology, Immunology, and Cancer Biology, with an emphasis on RNA epigenetics (mainly focusing on the N6 methyladenosine (m6A) modification) and DNA epigenetics (mainly focusing on the TET1/2/3-mediated DNA demethylation) associated basic and translational research. Our research involves experiments with primary human cancer cells, cancer and stem cell transplantation models, mouse genetics, classic molecular, biochemistry and cell biology, functional genomics, signal transduction, and large-scale data analysis and computational biology.
Minimum Education and Skills Required for Consideration:
The candidates for the Postdoctoral scientist positions should have a Ph.D. and/or M.D. degree(s), and a solid background in biochemistry, mouse model studies, hematology, epigenetics, immunology, pathology, and/or stem cell research is preferred for. The candidates should not have more than three years of postdoc training experience. The candidates should be highly motivated individuals with the ability to work in a team environment and with good oral and written communication skills in English.
