POSTDOCTORAL POSITION AT THE CANCER CENTER
Postdoctoral Position to Study Telomere Dysfunction Induced Senescence
A Postdoctoral position is available in the NJMS UH-Cancer Center (Newark Campus) to study the molecular mechanisms of telomere dysfunction induced senescence in mammals. Projects will identify the signals and pathways that lead to telomere erosion and dysfunction in human cells and will analyze the consequences of DNA damage signaling at telomeres in mammalian cell cultures and in tissues.
A Ph.D., obtained within the last 6 months and a strong background in cell biology or molecular biology is required. A background in telomere biology and cellular senescence is preferred. In addition, the successful applicant must have excellent written and verbal communication skills. Experience with mammalian cell culture and immunofluorescence/cytochemistry is advantageous.
