The Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine is seeking highly motivated computational and wet-lab scientists for postdoctoral fellow positions. Faculty at the Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine use genomic, computational, and translational approaches to conduct research to address fundamental biological questions in cancer, stem cells, immunology, diabetes, infectious disease, and microbiome research. (http://www.jax.org/ct/ct-faculty.html)
Postdoctoral fellows are being recruited in the following areas:
• Cancer Genomics
• Regulatory Genomics
• RNA Genomics
• Systems/Network Biology
• Infectious Diseases
The Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine is a new institute in the state of Connecticut, representing an expansion of The Jackson Laboratory, and dedicated to employing genomics to improve human health. The Connecticut campus is dedicated to advance personalized medicine by using genetic and genomic strategies to understand the complex regulatory mechanisms underlying health and disease.
Dr. Edison T. Liu’s scientific research focuses on the functional genomics of human cancers, investigating on a whole-genome scale the dynamics of gene regulation that modulates cancer biology. His lab investigates the expression signatures in breast cancers that define biochemical and genetic perturbations as well as the transcriptional regulation of estrogen receptors on a genomic scale. Utilizing patient derived xenograft (PDX) models established in JAX, his lab is actively developing approaches to provide personalized cancer genomic medicine treatments. Collectively, his work spans cancer biology, genomics, human genetics and molecular epidemiology.
