Thomas Jefferson University (TJU)

Post Doctoral Fellow

Thomas Jefferson University and Jefferson Health

Philadelphia, PA, United States

The Rodriguez-Bravo Lab at the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center (SKCC) at Thomas Jefferson University (Philadelphia, USA) is seeking Postdoctoral candidates with passion for biomedical research in the frontier of cancer biology to investigate cell and molecular mechanisms promoting aggressiveness of advanced castration resistant prostate cancer (CRPC).

The selected candidate will join a dynamic NCI-funded research lab focused on the study of nuclear pores biology and chromosomal instability in lethal prostate cancer (CRPC). Our group applies a multidisciplinary approaches to answer complex mechanistic questions combining genetics (gene targeting), transcriptomic, epigenetic and high resolution single cell live imaging to decipher genome function regulations including transcriptional control and genome stability, and how these mechanisms are altered during prostate cancer progression. Some of our recent work on nuclear pores roles in genome stability and in prostate cancer aggressiveness are listed below:
