A grant-funded postdoctoral research affiliate position is available in the Department of Cancer Genetics and Genomics, Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center. The focus of the research program is the genomics of tumor suppression due to endogenous and mutant X-linked cancer antigens.

 

This position is ideal for a candidate with a strong biology background with significant solid technical experience.  Our lab uses modern NGS techniques (bulk and single cell RNAseq), protein-protein methods and integrative genomics/bioinformatics and has expertise in comparative genetics and genetic epidemiology.

 

The incumbent will have the opportunity to craft a project supported by a multidisciplinary team of scientists, computational biologists and clinicians.  The Eng group is a computational biology research group working with big genomic data in the context of immune targets and biomarkers. Close collaborators include clinical and research groups in therapy resistance, immunotherapy and epigenetics.

Qualifications

PhD within 5 years; laboratory experience with demonstrated expertise in: tissue/cell culture; isolation and quantification of RNA/DNA/proteins from cultured cells or tissue specimens; viral vector-mediated transduction/transfection; basic molecular biology and biochemistry techniques (agarose gel electrophoresis, Western blotting, spectrometry, flow cytometry etc.).  Applicants must be able to work independently, self-motivated, with strong verbal and written communication skills.

Applicant Instructions

Interested candidates should submit a letter of interest, CV, and 3 letters of recommendation. These should be sent by email to Dr. Kevin Eng (Kevin.Eng@RoswellPark.org) with the subject line “Postdoctoral position, Cancer Biology”
