About City of Hope
City of Hope, an innovative biomedical research, treatment and educational institution with over 6000 employees, is dedicated to the prevention and cure of cancer and other life-threatening diseases and guided by a compassionate, patient-centered philosophy.
Founded in 1913 and headquartered in Duarte, California, City of Hope is a remarkable non-profit institution, where compassion and advanced care go hand-in-hand with excellence in clinical and scientific research. City of Hope is a National Cancer Institute designated Comprehensive Cancer Center and a founding member of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network, an alliance of the nation’s leading cancer centers that develops and institutes standards of care for cancer treatment.
Our group is interested in discovering novel genetic and epigenetic regulations and deciphering their underlying molecular mechanisms in normal developmental processes (e.g., hematopoiesis) and tumorigenesis (e.g., leukemogenesis). We cover research areas with relevance to Hematology, Immunology, and Cancer Biology, with an emphasis on RNA epigenetics (mainly focusing on the N6 methyladenosine (m6A) modification) and DNA epigenetics (mainly focusing on the TET1/2/3-mediated DNA demethylation) associated basic and translational research. Our research involves experiments with primary human cancer cells, cancer and stem cell transplantation models, mouse genetics, classic molecular, biochemistry and cell biology, functional genomics, signal transduction, and large-scale data analysis and computational biology.
Basic education, experience and skills required for consideration:
- A Ph.D. degree in life or biomedical sciences, or a related discipline is required.
- Solid background in biochemistry, mouse model studie s, hematology, epigenetics, immunology, pathology, and/or stem cell research is preferred
- The candidates should not have more than three years of postdoc training experience. The candidates should be highly motivated individuals with the ability to work in a team environment and with good oral and written communication skills in English.
- Lab skills including but not limited to: Flow cytometry, mass spectrometry/quantitative phospho-profiling, CyTOF, mouse genetics, bone marrow transplantation assays, retroviral gene delivery, whole exome sequencing and RNA-seq-analysis of clonal evolution of cancer, m6 A/5hmC dot blots, m6 A-seq, 5hmC-seq, ChIP-seq, RIP-seq, PAR-CLIP-seq, pre-clinical drug testing in xenotransplantation models.
