A motivated and independent cancer biology postdoc
scientist is sought to work on the identification of RNA and DNA modifications
in hematological malignancies. The ideal candidate will have at a minimum,
demonstrated molecular and cell biology expertise and experience with flow cytometry,
Real-Time PCR, and in vivo mouse models. The successful candidate will design
nucleic acid amplification primer and probes for detection of RNA and DNA
modifications, clone/optimize lentiviral vectors, examine the developed assay
in in vitro and in vivo leukemia models, and validate the function of these
modifications using well-characterized clinical samples. The experience of flow
cytometry, RT-qPCR, and handling BSL-2 (pathogen) is required.
The successful applicant must work within an integrated
multidisciplinary laboratory and be able to work with project scientists,
technicians and students in the team. In addition, the candidate will be
expected to report findings to PI and senior scientists.
