Postdoctoral Fellow in cancer epigenetics (Angela Ting laboratory)
Job posting number: #7121128
Posted: January 13, 2023
Application Deadline: Open Until Filled
Job DescriptionWe are recruiting motivated and talented individuals with expertise in transcription regulation, RNA biology, genome architecture, biochemistry, and/or genomics to work in the laboratory of Dr. Angela Ting. The Ting Lab focuses on epigenetic regulation in both healthy and disease contexts. We have pioneered next-generation sequencing (NGS)-based DNA methylome assay and analytical methods. We have successfully applied these tools to studying genome-wide changes in DNA methylation patterns in human diseases. In addition to mapping the epigenetic mark, we are also working on understanding the functional consequences of these aberrant patterns and the molecular mechanisms that initiate and propagate such abnormal features.
- Conduct research on cancer epigenetics
- Plan, organize, perform, and monitor daily project protocols.
- Collect, prepare, and maintain required research documentation
- Prepare and present research progress and results.
