Postdoctoral positions are available immediately in the laboratories of Drs. Rong Li and Yanfen Hu in the Department of Molecular Medicine at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, Texas. We are part of an interdisciplinary translational research program that covers cancer biology, tumor microenvironment, and animal models of human diseases.
Exciting postdoctoral research projects are available in the following areas:
• Investigate the mechanism of breast tumor suppressor BRCA1 in DNA repair, and transcriptional regulation, and therapeutic resistance (Cell Cycle 14:437; Nat Commun. 7:10913).
• Interrogate estrogen receptor signaling in tumor progression and antitumor immunity (J. Clin. Invest. 124:3378; Oncotarget. 7:42585; Cancer Res. 76:6964).
• Elucidate transcriptional regulation of energy metabolism in cardiac and adipose tissues (Nat Commun. 4:1821; Cell Rep, 7:79).
• Development of CRISPR-mediated genetic and epigenetic editing in vitro and in vivo.

The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio is the largest university of health science in South Texas and one of four medical schools in the UT System. The affiliated Cancer Therapy & Research Center (CTRC) is one of the NCI-designated national cancer centers in the state of Texas. San Antonio is a vibrant big city with small town friendly atmosphere. The cost of living is very reasonable.
The applicant must have a PhD degree in Biomedical Sciences and a strong publication record. Working experience in standard molecular/cellular biology is desirable. Working experience with mouse genetics is preferred but not absolutely required. If interested, please provide curriculum vitae and contact information for three references. This position will not have a faculty title.
