Molecular Biology & Biochemistry Postdoctoral Job Opportunity @ Indiana University USA

Molecular Biology & Biochemistry Postdoctoral Job Opportunity @ Indiana University USA: The Gary campus of IU School of Medicine is located on the IU Northwest campus in a highly populated urban region, south of Lake Michigan and just 25 miles from downtown Chicago. Students at this campus benefit from the IU School of Medicine’s high-quality statewide MD curriculum with an added benefit of studying in an urban location near Chicago. A wide variety of choices for third- and fourth-year clerkships provide access to a diverse patient population and a close relationship with attending physicians for challenging, real-world clinical experiences. Molecular Biology & Biochemistry Postdoctoral Job Opportunity @ Indiana University USA

Molecular Biology & Biochemistry Postdoctoral Job Opportunity @ Indiana University USA

Description

The project is designed to identify and target “epigenetic vulnerabilities” found in the pool of ovarian cancer stem cells that remains after chemotherapy. We will identify how key pathways are epigenetically maintained and regulated in ovarian cancer stem cells. These “epigenetic vulnerabilities” can then be targeted to switch off paths responsible for ovarian cancer stem cell survival after chemotherapy, eradicate the disease and improve the outcome for recurrent ovarian cancer patients. We will provide a dynamic cancer research environment with interactions and core resources available through the IU Bloomington campus (http://www.iub.edu/), the IU School of Medicine (http://medicine.iu.edu/) and the IU Simon Cancer Center (http://www.cancer.iu.edu/).
Bloomington, Indiana is an affordable city with urban amenities, including theatre productions, live music, art exhibits and a wide-range of culinary options, while still being located in the hilly, forested landscape of south-central Indiana (http://www.visitbloomington.com/).

Requirements

  • A PhD degree in Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Cellular Biology, Genomics, or a related field and a strong publication record are required.
  • Candidates must have a passion for cancer research and a strong interest and/or experience in epigenetics, cancer stem cells and drug resistance.
  • Expertise in in vivo studies using mouse models of cancer and flow cytometry is preferred.
  • The successful candidate will be expected to work independently on projects, generate and analyze data, help graduate students, and write manuscripts and grants.

Application Instructions

Applicants should send their CV, a brief (one page) statement of research interests and the contact information of three references to:
