Postdoctoral Fellowships in Human Molecular Genetics and Bioinformatics : Houston, TX, United States
The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center invites applications for postdoctoral fellowships in disease genetics, molecular biology, and bioinformatics starting immediately. Using state-of-the-art biological techniques, we seek to identify genetic and epigenetic biomarkers for human disease precision medicine, synthetic lethal and resistance mechanisms underlying disease development and signal transduction at the systems level. The postdoctoral research will be performed in a highly interdisciplinary and collaborative environment with world-class experts and advanced technologies and facilities, which provide unique and ideal career development opportunities for postdocs. Successful candidates will be supervised by Dr. Nidhi Sahni, a faculty member and recognized leader in molecular signaling and network biology. Dr. Sahni has received numerous prestigious awards, including Sloan Research Fellowship, Pinnacle Research Award, Rising STARs Award, CPRIT Scholars Award, among others. Recent representative publications include Cell (2015), 161: 647-60; Nat Rev Genet (2017), 18: 395-410; Cell (2015), 161: 661-73; Cell (2017), 168: 856-66; Cancer Cell (2018).
