Both basic scientists and physician-scientists are encouraged to apply to join the lab as postdoctoral fellows. Fellows will be provided with significant intellectual freedom, substantial technical support, and ample opportunities to form collaborations and develop a national and international reputation. A background in transposable elements and repetitive sequences is not required and can be ‘learned on the job’. Rather, projects will lie at the interface of this field with another area of expertise brought by the successful candidates. These areas of expertise may include, but are not limited to: cancer cell biology; a specific type of malignancy (e.g., ovarian, lung, colon); DNA repair; epigenetics; gene regulation; tumor immunology and immunooncology; interferon signaling; and protein translation or turn-over. A track-record of first-author, peer-reviewed publication is required.

Students applying to or enrolled in graduate programs at Harvard Medical School are encouraged to reach out, learn about the laboratory, and consider joining us for a rotation. The lab provides an exciting and supportive environment to learn about transposable elements and contribute to our knowledge in the field.
