A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Satrajit Sinha to study transcriptional and epigenomic control mechanisms that dictate epithelial development, differentiation and oncogenesis. The lab is located in the Department of Biochemistry in the downtown campus with access to cutting-edge resources and core facilities. The lab currently utilizes biochemical, genetic, and bioinformatics tools to investigate mechanisms of normal development and pathological conditions that afflict skin, oral cavity and the mammary glands.
The incumbent is expected to carry out advanced biomedical research using a variety of approaches and techniques that include wet-lab experiments as well as computational analysis. The selected candidate must be highly motivated, take initiative, and work well independently as well as with members of the research group. The postdoc will be provided opportunities and support for independent grant writing and career improvement.
The candidate must hold a PhD, DDS or MD degree.
Experience in molecular biology and bioinformatics is highly desirable.
