- Posting Date: Aug 11, 2022
- Application Deadline: Open Until Filled
The Harris lab has deep interests in understanding the molecular mechanisms of tumor and virus evolution with strong emphasis on the APOBEC family of DNA/RNA editing enzymes. Important problems in cancer biology and virology are addressed using approaches from multiple disciplines including molecular biology, biochemistry, bioinformatics, cell biology, structural biology, and molecular virology. Collaborations are also key to success, and every lab member has multiple opportunities to be involved in working with other groups. Dr. Harris is dedicated to training, mentoring, and promoting diversity as evidenced by over 40 PhD and postdoctoral trainees who have transition successfully to careers in academia and industry.
New postdoctoral trainees will have multiple opportunities to develop their own independent research program, each of which will start by identifying an important question, formulating a clear hypothesis, and implementing multiple independent approaches to test the hypothesis. In addition to developing robust research portfolios, trainees will receive mentorship on career development and scientific communication including public presentations and publications.
The Biochemistry and Structural Biology Department at UTHSA is in the midst of an exciting and transformative expansion, which will strengthen existing areas including structural biology, DNA repair, cancer biology, and virology, and enable growth in many new directions.
To be considered for a position, please send a cover letter, a CV or resume, and a list of at least 3 professional references to Dr. Dean Bacich - [email protected]
