Job DescriptionPostdoctoral fellow in cancer cell biology
The Oh laboratory has an open postdoctoral position at the Center for Cancer Research, Massachusetts General Hospital and the Department of Medicine, Harvard Medical School. Our lab focuses on how protein ubiquitylation governs the identity of cancer cell types. Some of our ongoing projects include (i) identifying the ubiquitin-dependent enzymes that control cancer cell survival and proliferation, (ii) elucidating the molecular basis for ubiquitin-dependent gene regulation, and (iii) developing small molecule inhibitors that target the ubiquitin-proteasome system. We employ a multidisciplinary approach, combining classical approaches with modern OMICs-based technologies to gain new insights into ubiquitin-dependent mechanisms and diseases. More information on our research program can be found at www.ohlabs.org.
We are seeking a self-motivated investigator who has a strong background in biochemistry, cancer cell biology, CRISPR-based screens, and/or small molecule drug discovery. The ideal candidate is a strong bench scientist who can think creatively and has a proven track of success in a laboratory setting (i.e. a record of publications). A PhD and/or MD is required for this position. The postdoctoral fellow will have the necessary resources to carry out an independent research project, including access to technicians, and will hold academic appointments at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School in Boston, MA.
Interested candidates should submit a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, and a list of references with contact information to Eugene Oh at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School uphold a commitment to affirmative action and equal opportunity.
