Full Job Description
The Yun laboratory studies multiple aspects of brain cancer biology, employing techniques in genetics, genomics, molecular biology, cell biology, biochemistry, and mouse models. We study mechanisms that promote cancer stem cell survival and self-renewal and the role of tumor microenvironment, particularly immune cells, in mediating therapy resistance and cancer progression in brain and other solid tumors.
We have a postdoctoral fellow position for candidates with strong interest and expertise in single cell biology, stem cell biology, tumor immunology, or computational biology.
Houston Methodist Research Institute (HMRI) is a non-profit, academic research institute affiliated with the Weill Cornell Medical College, and provides unique translational research opportunities. HMRI is located in the Texas Medical Center, adjacent to Rice University, Baylor College of Medicine, and MD Anderson Cancer Center, providing ample opportunities to interact with researchers in these neighboring institutions.
The Yun lab is looking for colleagues with demonstrated passion for science, outstanding work ethics, and excellent interpersonal and organizational skills. Postdoc candidates with a Ph.D. in tumor immunology or single cell genomics are encouraged to apply.
