Postdoctoral associate positions available for highly motivated candidates with a fresh PHD training in molecular biology, cell biology or biochemistry to join the Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC) School of Medicine, USA.

Multiple on-going projects include (1) biochemical characterization of epigenetic factors/complexes that regulate gene expression in stem cells or cancer cells; (2) CRISPR/dCas9-based editing and screening of epigenetic pathways in gene expression; (3) knockout and knock-in mouse models with deficiency in histone methylation regulation in context of development and tumorigenesis, with a special focus on hematopoietic cancer and disease; (4) epigenomic and transcriptome analyses (ChIP-Seq and RNA-Seq) of normal versus cancer cells to delineate pathways essential for tumor growth.
