Degree: Ph.D. or M.D.
Nationality: International Students
Application deadlines: Open
The Sihan Wu lab, based in Children’s Medical Center Research Institute (CRI) at UT Southwestern, is scheduled to open in July 2021, and has multiple postdoctoral positions opening now. We study the molecular basis of extrachromosomal DNA (ecDNA) in human cancer, including its replication, transcription, and repair, and try to develop effective approaches to tackle these mechanisms to eliminate ecDNA in cancer as therapeutic strategies. Applicants who are intellectually curious and interested in science that bridges cancer genetics, genomics, epigenetics, metabolism, and signal transduction, are encouraged to apply.
Postdoctoral scientist in the lab will conduct cutting-edge research in a protected, interactive, highly collaborative, and well-funded environment, with access to shared facilities including sequencing, bioinformatics, imaging, metabolomics, flow cytometry, molecular pathology, mouse genome engineering, and beyond.

DNA and chromatin biology, genetics, genomics, epigenetics, signal transduction, cancer metabolism, and bioinformatics.
Qualifications for these positions include Ph.D. or M.D. degree(s) (or anticipate receiving their degree in the near future) with less than 2 years of postdoctoral experience. Candidates with relevant training involving DNA and chromatin biology, genetics, genomics, epigenetics, signal transduction, cancer metabolism, and bioinformatics, especially with both wet-lab and dry-lab experience, are particularly encouraged to apply.
Interested applicants should submit the following documents assembled into one PDF file to [email protected] (entitled with “Postdoc_Application_Your_Name” for auto-archiving)
- 1. A Cover Letter describing your interest in this position.
- 2. A CV listing your education, training background, publications, and skill set.
- 3. A 2-page Research Statement summarizing your current research achievement and future research interest.
- 4. One to two Reference Letter(s), including from your current mentor(s).
