University of North Carolina- Chapel Hill Post-Doc Research Associate in NC-Chapel-Hill, United States

Vacancy ID: PDS003553

Position Summary/Description:

A fully-funded postdoctoral position is available in the NCI -Designated Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The incumbent will join the burgeoning and interdisciplinary research group headed by Dr. Hector L. Franco and will lead research related to a broad array of topics, including gene regulation, chromatin, transcription, epigenetics, and RNA biology. We are particularly interested in studying the formation and function of transcriptional enhancers and the non-coding RNAs that are actively produced at enhancers, known as enhancer RNAs, that are involved in modulating several aspects of gene regulation. In addition, we aim to understand how transcriptional enhancers help orchestrate responses to external stimuli found in the tumor microenvironment. The research goals will be addressed in an interdisciplinary way by combining using state-of-the-art molecular and cellular techniques with powerful proteomic, genomic, and computational approaches.
