Postdoctoral Fellowship - Omics, Cancer and Alzheimer's Disease

St. Jude Children's Research Hospital
Structural Biology
United States Tennessee Memphis


Two postdoctoral positions are available for motivated candidates at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, a premier center for biomedical investigation located in Memphis, Tennessee, USA. Our group has contributed to the discovery of ubiquitin code (Cell 2009) and numerous novel pathways in Alzheimer’s disease (Neuron 2020). The successful applicant will have an opportunity to use a range of approaches, including mass spectrometry, single-cell proteomics, CRISPR and organoids to explore the pathogenesis of cancer or neurodegenerative diseases. The overarching aim is to study complex molecular interactions by chemistry, genetics and systems biology, providing novel insights into disease development, therapeutic intervention, and biomarker discovery for precision medicine ( Our postdoctoral fellows have extensive interaction with other members for career development in cutting-edge technologies and biomedical research. More than 10 alumni become principal investigators. Our publications are available on Google Scholar (200+ publications, 24,000+ citations). St. Jude is a top ranked hospital (#1 for pediatric cancer specialty in U.S. in 2017) and a world-class basic research institute with about 300 faculty members.
