harvardmed Boston, Massachusetts, USA
Research Technologist or Post-doc position available at Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center/Harvard Medical School (Simches Building, Main Campus, Boston) in our lab working on ribosomes, translation and non-coding RNAs and their roles and mechanisms in quiescent and refractory cancers.
The primary goal of the laboratory’s research is to investigate RNA mechanisms to identify the specialized gene expression program that promotes the persistence of clinically resistant quiescent cells in cancers. The mechanisms of regulation of critical genes by specialized RNA binding proteins, nucleotide modifications, modified ribosomes and their modifiers, in resistant cancer cells will be characterized, using human cell lines, patient samples, and in vivo models.
