The Laird Lab's long-term goal is to develop a detailed understanding of the molecular basis of human cancer, with a particular emphasis on the role of epigenetics, using genomic technologies and mouse genetics.
A major focus of this position will be to implement advanced technology for low-input bisulfite sequencing, with applications in studies of human tumor epigenetic heterogeneity, cancer detection in patient plasma samples, and single cell epigenomics in mouse models.
This postdoctoral position is available in June 2016 for a motivated PhD graduate who meets the qualifications and description outlined below.
Description of a Successful Candidate:
- A “team” focused scientist
- A self-motivated and driven individual who is able to exhibit exceptional research productivity and take responsibility for independent management of the project
- A detail-oriented researcher who thinks critically to effectively design experiments and solve complex research problems
- A strong ability to take initiative and work independently
- A collaborative, hands-on researcher who proactively shares knowledge and expertise with lab members and has an interest in helping junior lab members
- Excellent written and oral communication skills
