An NIH -supported postdoctoral fellow position is available immediately in Dr. Byungwoo Ryu’s laboratory at the Boston University School of Medicine. These positions will focus on the interrogation of underlying epigenetic mechanisms of tumorigenesis and discovery of noble epigenetic targets for therapy in melanoma and other cancers. The projects use experimental approaches in chemical genetics, proteomics, epigenomics, computational and system biology, advanced gene editing, and whole animal handling as well as traditional molecular, cellular, and biochemical methodologies. Experience in any of these areas is a merit, but mastery of other advanced research techniques will be considered as evidence of an ability to learn skills needed in the projects. The candidates will have the ability to work both independently and as a part of team.
