Postdoctoral position in RNA binding proteins, circulating tumor cells, and breast cancer metastasis

Posted on May 28,

A postdoctoral position is available in the Cheng Lab at Baylor College of Medicine. We are seeking individuals who are interested in RNA binding proteins, RNA regulation, transposon elements, circulating tumor cells, and breast cancer metastasis. Candidates with experience in RNA biology or mouse models are strongly preferred. We employ a wide range of cutting-edge techniques including single-cell RNA sequencing, long-reads sequencing, CRISPR-mediated barcoding, and CTC imaging. We also offer enormous opportunities to conduct wet-lab and dry-lab approaches within the lab. This is an exceptional opportunity for a highly-motivated individual to experience research freedom in a highly supportive environment.
