The Green Laboratory at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center is seeking highly qualified and motivated candidates for two open postdoctoral fellow positions. The projects are each focused on exploring the role of unique genetic drivers of aggressive B-cell lymphoma, and targeting critical epigenetic and signaling pathways with novel therapeutics. Each project will employ cutting edge genomic approaches, CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing, transgenic animal models, and patient-derived xenograft models.
The Green lab is part of the Department of Lymphoma & Myeloma and the Department of Genomic Medicine, which offer a highly translational research environment. The lab is well funded through the NIH/NCI, research consortia, and other funding mechanisms. Dr. Green received his training at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute/Harvard Medical School and Stanford Medical School, and places an emphasis on career development and trainee mentorship.
The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center is the nation’s #1 ranked cancer center, located within the Texas Medical Center – home to 21 hospitals and 8 academic and research institutes. Houston is a large and vibrant city with an affordable cost of living, two major airports, professional sports teams, and cultural activities.
Applicants should have graduated with their MD and/or PhD no earlier than 2017 and must have experience with molecular biology. Experience with animal models and/or next generation sequencing and/or bioinformatics is desirable.
