Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position and a full-time technician position
in the laboratory of Dr. Tulin. Both positions are planned for at least three years,
with a possibility of renewal. The successful applicants will conduct research on
epigenetic regulation of normal development and carcinogenesis. The primary research
focus of Dr. Tulin’s lab is on fundamentals of chromatin regulation and RNA fate during
normal development and in carcinogenesis, as well as on translating the findings of
fundamental biology for clinical applications in oncology. Projects in Dr. Tulin’s
lab cover the molecular mechanisms of chromatin remodeling and regulation of gene
expression and employ in vitro assays as well as human cells, mouse and Drosophila model organisms.
Applicants for the postdoctoral position should have a Ph.D. in molecular biology,
molecular genetics, biochemistry, or a related field and no more than 3 years of postdoctoral
research experience. Experience in genetics, confocal microscopy, protein purification,
live-cell imaging, and genomics / proteomics would be helpful. Applicants for the
technician position are required to have B.S. or M.S. in natural sciences or B.A.
in biological anthropology. We will start reviewing the application immediately until
the position is filled. The top candidates will be invited for an interview and discussion
of specific project. All interviews will be conducted on-site and cannot be substituted
by Skype or telephone discussion.
To apply, please send or e-mail a letter of interest specifying your career goals,
CV, and names of 3 references to:
