A postdoctoral position is available immediately in the Department of Oncology, University of Wisconsin-Madison to study transcriptional regulation and epigenetic mechanisms in breast cancer (Wang L., Cancer Cell, 2014; Shishkova E, Nature Comm., 2017; Liu F. NCB, 2017; Liu F., EMBO J, 2021; Kim E., Nucleic Acids Res, 2021). The candidate is expected to have expertise in transcription, signaling, or cancer epigenetics and familiar with standard molecular assays, cell culture, biochemistry, and flow cytometry. The project will involve taking genomic approaches (e.g. ChIP-Seq and scRNA-Seq) and proteomic approaches to dissect epigenetic mechanisms using cell-based models and/or animal models. Experience with computational genomic tools and breast cancer rodent model is preferred but not required. The applicant must have at least one first-author publication in major cancer related journal to be considered. Exciting research environment, state-of-the-art equipment and facilities are available. The applicant will be paid at NIH standard salary with health benefits. To apply, submit a statement of research interests, curriculum vitae, and three references (name, e-mail address, and telephone number) to: Dr. Wei Xu ([email protected]
