Postdoctoral positions are available in the laboratory of Jianlong Wang, Department of Medicine, Columbia Center of Human Development. The project is to study RNA epigenetics (e.g., m5C modification) in stem cell pluripotency, early development, and cancer.
The overall interest of the lab is to understand the molecular mechanisms of cellular plasticity and cellular reprogramming in both mouse and human systems. Particularly, we are interested in transcriptional, post-transcriptional (RNA modification), epigenetic and epitranscriptomic control of gene expression in regulating stem cell potency, early development and cancer. We employ protein biochemistry, DNA/RNA epigenetics, molecular biology, and bioinformatics to study stem cell biology and early development. Applicants should have a PhD and/or M.D. degree in life sciences with strong experimental skills including proficiency with mammalian cell/tissue culture, biochemistry and molecular biology and other basic laboratory techniques. Research experience in cancer biology is a plus. In addition to being self-motivated, the ability to work independently and as part of team with good communication skills are highly desirable.
Qualified applicants should submit via e-mail a C.V., a cover letter to demonstrate your qualification, and a list of three names as professional references to: email@example.com
