We are looking for enthusiastic postdoctoral fellows to join our group (Jin Chen Lab, https://jinchenlab.com/) in the Cecil H. and Ida Green Center for Reproductive Biology Sciences (a department-level autonomous research center focused on gene regulation) at UT Southwestern Medical Center.
Our research is centered around functional genomics, translational control, and the emerging roles of the “unannotated genome”, which encodes a whole new class of uncharacterized microproteins.
Our laboratory has several exciting projects related to investigating translational gene regulation and the functions of novel microproteins during tumorigenesis and other biological processes.
These positions will also include opportunities to learn and build upon the latest methods in genomics, proteomics, biochemistry and biophysics, deep sequencing techniques, CRISPR screening, and bioinformatics.
Candidates must hold a Ph.D. and/or M.D. degree or A visiting scholar.
Experience in biochemistry, cell biology, biophysics, genomics, bioinformatics, and/or cancer biology leading to publication in peer-reviewed journals is recommended.
We especially value motivated, creative, and collaborative individuals, and we are committed to training these scientists to succeed in their future careers.
Interested individuals should send a CV, statement of interests, and a list of three references to: Jin.Chen@UTSouthwestern.edu.
