Fully funded postdoctoral research positions are available in Dr. Michael Aregger’s Functional Genomics Section within the Molecular Targets Program at the National Cancer Institute (NCI) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Frederick, MD, USA. The group’s research focuses on how cancer cells rewire gene expression and metabolism to adapt to changing environmental conditions. Towards this Michael Aregger’s group applies CRISPR-based genome engineering tools and functional genomics approaches to reveal genetic interactions and cancer dependencies, and to identify regulators of metabolic plasticity in cancer cells.

Applicants must have a Ph.D. degree and expertise in molecular biology, genetics, biochemistry, cell biology or bioinformatics. Motivated candidates who are interested in innovative research using cutting-edge technologies are encouraged to apply. Applicants with research experience in functional genomics, CRISPR technology, molecular biology and bioinformatics are especially encouraged to apply.
The Aregger lab is part of NCI’s Center for Cancer Research (CCR). CCR offers fellows access to cutting-edge technologies and cores, a highly collaborative environment, awards and research forums to recognize outstanding postdocs, continuous scientific symposia and lectures featuring leading researchers, a strong commitment to translational research, and a vibrant clinical research program housed in the world’s largest dedicated research hospital, the NIH Clinical Center.
