Job Description

We are looking for talented individuals to join the NSB Lab at Department of Pathology, NUS. Our team aims to understand molecular mechanism underlying natural killer / T-cell Lymphoma (NKTCL), which is an aggressive disease with very poor treatment outcomes in the advanced stages. Using a combinational analytical approach via gene and miRNA expression profiling on paraffin embedded tissue samples, our team has uncovered the molecular signatures and important oncogenic pathways in NKTCL, and identified novel biomarkers and potential therapeutic targets. The long term goal is to delineate and validate key biomarkers and oncogenic pathways in NKTCL and identifying molecular subsets of prognostic and clinical importance. Highly motivated individuals with a passion to understand disease mechanism and to advance personalised and preventive medicine are encouraged to apply.
