Post-doctoral Fellow – Huntsman Lab

Postdoctoral Research Fellow – SWI/SNF Chromatic Remodeling Complexes and Cancer Progression

BC’s Gynecological Cancer Research Program (OVCARE)
Department of Pathology, Faculty of Medicine
University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada

Exciting postdoctoral training opportunity studying targeted therapies for ovarian and other gynecological cancers with the OVCARE Program at the University of British Columbia and BC Cancer.

The Department of Pathology at the University of British Columbia invites applications for a Postdoctoral Fellow. The successful applicant will work with the multidisciplinary OVCARE team (BC’s Gynecological Cancer Research Program) directed by Dr. David Huntsman. This position will be translational and interdisciplinary in nature aimed at deciphering the role of cancer-associated mutations, especially those related to the SWI/SNF chromatin remodeling complexes, in tumourigenesis and their potential as druggable targets.

Applicants should have a PhD or MD/PhD with a strong background and publication record in a relevant field (e.g. genetics, cellular and molecular biology). The position will rely heavily on in vitro and in vivo models of cancer so demonstrated expertise in this area is required. In addition, either experience in bioinformatics would be an asset. The position will commence as soon as possible. Excellent verbal and written communication skills are required. The initial appointment will be for a one-year term, with potential for annual renewal. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

Qualified candidates should send (by email) a statement of research interest, curriculum vitae and contact details for 3 referees to:
