The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center

Postdoctoral Fellowship

The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center

Houston, TX, United States

Postdoctoral positions are available in the Lin lab in the Department of Systems Biology at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. Our laboratory focuses on utilizing systems approaches to identify key therapeutic vulnerabilities associated with deficiencies in DNA damage and stress responses, and develop novel personalized cancer therapies based on these deficiencies in cancer (McGrail, et al. Science Translational Medicine 2021; McGrail, et al. Cancer Cell 2020; Sun, et al. Cancer Cell 2018; Peng, et al. Nat. Comm. 2014). 

We are seeking highly motivated candidates with experience in cancer biology, cancer immunology, and/or bioinformatics to work on two funded R01 grants focused on leveraging DNA damage response defects to enhance tumor immunogenicity and develop novel immune-mediated cancer therapies. The candidates will also have opportunities to develop highly impactful projects based on their research interests.

Successful experimentally focused postdocs will have experience with standard molecular biology techniques and in vivo mouse experiments. Successful computationally focused postdocs will be able to integrate diverse “-omics” datasets and patient clinical information, including experience with standard languages (e.g., Python, R). 

MD Anderson is ranked by U.S. News & World Report as the top hospital for cancer care in the nation.  

All applicants should have strong communication skills and experience preparing scientific manuscripts. Interested applicants should send a cover letter describing your previous experience and future research plans along with a detailed CV and at least three references to:
