DNA Repair – Tumor-Prone Mouse Models

National Cancer Institute, Bethesda, MD and surrounding area

Position Description:

A postdoctoral fellow position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Yuichi Machida in the Developmental Therapeutics Branch (DTB), NCI-NIH to study DNA repair and their roles as tumor suppressor mechanisms. Dr. Machida’s team studies proteases involved in the repair of DNA-Protein Crosslink (DPC) damage using molecular and cellular biology techniques as well as mouse genetics. The successful candidate will investigate the mechanisms underlying genomic instability and tumor-prone phenotypes caused by defective DPC repair.
