Job Purpose

Postdoctoral position available in DNA repair and recombination field

We are recruiting goal-oriented, collaborative and highly motivated postdocs to study the mechanisms of genome instability, DNA repair and recombination. We have a track record of training students and postdoctoral fellows who become independent group leaders in academia and industry. 

Our laboratory at Baylor College of Medicine, located in Houston, is part of largest medical center in the world. Over 20 laboratories across the medical center share our interest in DNA repair and form the highly interactive and collaborative Genome Instability Group. 

Our research interest scope ranges from fundamental basic molecular mechanisms of DNA repair, recombination and replication to clinical applications. To understand the mechanism of DNA repair we develop and employ genetic, functional genomics, molecular biology and next generation sequencing assays. To complement our genetic approach we collaborate closely with biochemists.

We encourage applicants with relevant experiences in microbiology, genetics, cell biology, molecular biology or relevant fields to join our team. Lab website: iralab.org
