A postdoctoral position is available for a highly motivated scientist to investigate genetic mediators of carcinogenesis using the zebrafish model with a focus on investigating candidate cancer-associated genes that may be essential in driving cancer initiation. Research activities will include analysis of current large-scale genetic/genomic data sets, gene overexpression and knockdown, cell transplantation, and fluorescence-based assays. Preference will be for individuals with prior experience in zebrafish microinjection, gene editing, microscopy, and genomic/RNA-seq analysis.
