Job description:

Postdoctoral Opportunity in Transcriptional Regulation and Cancer Biology

A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Iván D'Orso in the Department of Microbiology at UT Southwestern Medical Center. The D'Orso laboratory works at the cutting-edge of gene regulation networks in the context of normal and disease states, investigating cell signaling and transcriptional regulatory programs to illuminate the function of novel tumor suppressor/oncogenic pathways. Our laboratory has made major contributions to our understanding of the regulation and functions of transcription elongation complexes and non-coding RNAs in normal physiology and in the context of disease states (viral infections and cancer). We employ a wide array of approaches to study this biomedical research problem including molecular, biochemical, pharmacological, and genomics. We are seeking for candidates
that can apply experimental and computational approaches to interrogate how malfunction of gene regulatory networks can induce loss of tumor suppressor potential and malignancy, and how these processes can be therapeutically manipulated. Dr. D'Orso has an excellent track of mentoring highly successful undergraduate, graduate and postdoctoral trainees and is committed to the career development of all laboratory members.

Education, training, experience:

The successful candidate must hold a Ph.D. degree and be recent graduate, not having held an earlier postdoctoral position for more than about two years. Experience in cell culture, molecular biology, chromatin biology and epigenetics leading to publication in peer-reviewed journals is recommended.

Interested individuals should send a CV, statement of interests, and a list of at least two references

UT Southwestern Medical Center is an Affirmative Action / Equal Opportunity Employer. Women, minorities, veterans, and individuals with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
