Job Description

We are looking for a motivated and passionate postdoctoral fellow to join Dr. Krishna Bhat's laboratory focused on brain tumor research. Glioblastoma (GBM) is one of the most recalcitrant brain cancer with a median survival of only 12-15 months. Unlike other cancers, targeted therapies or "personalized medicine" approaches as well as immunotherapies have failed to improve outcome in GBM and therefore novel strategies are urgently needed to combat this disease. Our laboratory takes multipronged approaches to address these areas of unmet need for brain tumors. The current position will focus on studying transcription factors, chromatin remodeling and cell fate control in GBM using cancer stem cell as well as genetically engineered mouse models.

Applicants must have a recent PhD in cancer biology, epigenetics or molecular biology from a reputed University/Institute or within 1-2 years of graduation. At least one first author publication in a peer reviewed journal stemming from PhD studies is required. A solid background in epigenetics, chromatin biology and/or molecular biology is highly desirable. Salary is based on NIH NRSA levels. Please send CV and information on three referees directly to Dr. Krishna Bhat (kbhat@mdanderson.org).
