Non-Coding, Circular RNA Prostate Cancer

Prostate Cancer Lab Johns Hopkins University, Department of Urology, Baltimore, Maryland

Position Description:

The Luo lab at the Johns Hopkins University is seeking an independent and motivated postdoctoral fellow to study non-coding, circular RNA in prostate cancer.  Toward this end, we combine molecular biology, cell biology, and computational biology. The postdoctoral fellow will focus on the identification of circular RNAs in prostate cancer, and how the associated functional consequences of circular RNAs contribute to cancer development. Candidates will ideally have interests relevant to these topics, and will have opportunities to pursue their own research interests in prostate tumorigenesis.
Our lab is part of the Brady Urological Institute, Department of Urology at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.


The successful candidates will have a Ph.D. in the following or related fields: cancer biology, molecular biology, biochemistry, genetics, epigenetics, cell biology, bioinformatics or computational biology. We are currently looking for a candidate who (1) have extensive experience with molecular and cellular biology, and (2) have experience with -omics data and strong quantitative skills will be a plus. Good organizational and writing skills are also required.
The position is DOD-funded. Salary will depend on candidate experience. The start date is flexible and can be as early as July 2022.
