Division:  Pediatrics
Schedule:  Monday - Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Work Location:  Texas Medical Center, Houston, TX
Salary Range:  $50,004 - $61,308
FLSA Status:  Exempt
Requisition ID:  1503

A postdoctoral position is available in the Barbieri laboratory to study the molecular mechanisms regulating neuroblastoma differentiation. The laboratory, funded by NCI, is currently focused on the study of an epigenetic factor, which drives neuroblastoma initiation and treatment resistance, with particular emphasis on cell differentiation, epigenetics, and metabolism.

Job Responsibilities

The candidate will use a combination of various cell and molecular biology approaches (including RNA-seq, ChIP-seq, CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing, neural crest models, and metabolomics), as well as different tumors models (transgenic, xenograft, and syngeneic) to explore the regulation of differentiation and metabolism during neuroblastoma progression.

Minimum Qualifications

Education: Ph.D

Experience: Related experience required.

Preferred Qualifications
  • Prior first author publications. 
  • Strong background in cancer biology, cell and molecular biology, and mouse models of cancer.
  • Candidates should be highly motivated to pursue an independent career in biomedical research. 
  • Background in developmental and cancer biology, with particular experience in molecular biology techniques, epigenetics, and bioinformatics
