Job Description

Title:  Postdoctoral Associate - Cancer Epigenetics
Division:  Molecular and Human Genetics
Schedule:  Monday - Friday; 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

A Postdoctoral Associate position is available in the lab of Dr. Tao Wu in the Department of Molecular and Human Genetics at Baylor College of Medicine (https://www.bcm.edu/research/labs/tao-wu). The Wu lab focuses on the dynamic epigenetic regulation and the mechanisms underlying cancer progression and therapeutic resistance; in particular, the functional mechanisms of RNA and DNA methylation. We seek to decipher the epigenetic driving force of the therapeutic drug resistance, define new biomarkers, and develop new approaches to overcome the resistance in cancer. We apply multiple wet lab techniques, such as single-cell multi-omics profiling, single-molecule sequencing, as well as dry lab genomics and bioinformatics approaches in cancer model systems.

We are seeking a Postdoctoral Associate whose research will study the epigenetic mechanisms underlying cancer acquired drug-resistance, and the epigenetic mechanisms in the cell stress response regulation (aging related). Training background should be on molecular biology, cell biology, cancer biology, and genomics.
