Research Associate /Research Assistant (Leukemia Epigenetics)
The purpose of this post is to develop and expedite projects aimed at characterizing leukemia networks in leukemia using newly developed disease models in the lab.

Over the years, our lab has focused on identification and characterization of key transcriptional and epigenetic networks critical for leukemia development (Kwok et al., 2006, Cancer Cell; Zeisig et al., 2007, Cancer Cell; Cheung et al., 2007, Nat Cell Biology; Arteaga et al., 2013, Cancer Cell; Esposito et al., 2015, Nature Medicine; Cheung et al., 2016, Cancer Cell). Details about the lab can be found at www.ericso.org. The initial contract is for1 year but is renewable subject to the progress of the projects. Candidates are expected to have strong background and relevant publications in areas of stem cells, leukemia biology or computational biology.
