Job DescriptionJob Description:
The ultimate goal of the Green Laboratory is to understand the molecular etiology of B-cell lymphoma and myeloma, and to use this knowledge to identify novel therapeutic strategies. Our laboratory employs high-throughput genomics to interrogate primary tumor specimens, including genome-, exome-, RNA-, ChIP- and ATAC-sequencing, as well as cutting-edge single cell DNA, transcriptome and ATAC sequencing approaches. This position will entail the utilization of existing pipelines and the creation of new pipelines to interrogate in integrate these datasets, towards providing biological insight.
