Postdoctoral positions are available in two areas: super-resolution imaging, and cancer genomics.
Research in the lab of Dr. H. Courtney Hodges at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas, focuses on quantitative approaches to understand epigenetic mechanisms (Hodges et al., Cold Spring Harb Perspect Med 2016; Stanton*, Hodges*, et al., Nature Genetics 2017; Hodges & Crabtree, PNAS 2012; Hathaway et al., Cell, 2012; Kadoch et al., Nature Genetics 2013; Hodges et al., Science 2009). The lab is located in the Texas Medical Center, the largest biomedical campus in the world. Postdocs will have access to considerable resources for cell biology, epigenetics, genomics, and computation in the lab, and participate in a stimulating, productive biomedical research community. Positions are funded and provide competitive salaries in a major, diverse city with high quality of living.
An ideal candidate for the imaging position would be interested in the dynamics of chromatin regulators in living cells using 2D single-particle tracking. The candidate should have a PhD in the physical sciences, life sciences, engineering, computer science, or a related field. Those with experience in microscopy image analysis (especially TIRF or other single-molecule biophysics approaches) and coding are especially encouraged to apply.
An ideal candidate for the genomics position would be interested in the preparation and quantitative analysis of large datasets in cancer. The candidate should have a PhD in genetics, informatics, life sciences, bioengineering, or a related field, and have experience with high-throughput sequencing library preparation and analysis. Experience with RNA-seq, ChIP-seq, or ATAC-seq would be ideal. Previous experience with some coding is required.
