Postdoctoral position in functional genomics and systems biology at Boston University
Job posting number: #7052880
Posted: September 4, 2018
Application Deadline: November 9, 2018
Job DescriptionThe Fuxman Bass lab (www.fuxmanlab.com) in the Biology Department at Boston University is seeking a highly motivated and collaborative post-doctoral researcher with a background in molecular biology, genomics or a related field to join our team. The lab is broadly interested in transcriptional regulation in healthy and pathogenic conditions, and integrates high-throughput protein-DNA mapping assays, CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing, bioinformatics, systems biology, and cell biology approaches. Main projects in the lab include:
- Studying specificity and plasticity in the transcriptional regulation of cytokine genes.
- Determining the causes and consequences of gene regulatory network rewiring by transcription factor isoforms in cancer.
- Determine how virally-encoded transcription factors hijack the host’s gene regulatory networks to modulate immune responses.
- Identifying noncoding driver mutations in cancer.
- Studying the transcriptional regulation of pluripotency genes and developing strategies to generate iPSCs and differentiate them into different cell types.
We are seeking a dynamic and collaborative individual who will be responsible for designing and executing studies in one or more of the above topics. Experience in molecular biology, cell culture, bioinformatics, and/or genomics are recommended. We offer tailored training, a collegial environment, and opportunites for collaborations and career development.
If you are interested, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your CV and a cover letter.
