Job Description

The department of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology at MUSC has an opening for highly motivated and collegial Postdoctoral Fellow, who is not only a problem solver, but also can think outside the box, in the laboratory of Dr. Ouyang beginning January 2024. The Ouyang lab is focusing on understanding, 1) the RNA-mediated genome maintenance and, 2) the transcriptional stress-induced genomic instability, in cancer cells, as well as targeting the underlying molecular mechanisms to develop novel cancer therapies (Nature, 594:283; Molecular Cell, 57:108; Molecular Cell, 34:145). We use wide range of cutting-edge research technologies to not only address the fundamental questions in basic science, but also actively seek to translate our research into targeted cancer therapies by exploiting cancer cell’s dependency on various genome maintenance mechanisms.
