The Center for Functional Cancer Epigenetics (CFCE) is dedicated to the exploration of the key role that epigenetic alterations and abnormal transcriptional regulation play in the development an progression of cancer. A better understanding of these alterations will lead to better diagnosis for cancer and contributions to the knowledge required for the development of new therapeutics exploiting epigenetic mechanisms. The Center???s organization and leadership represents a very tight coupling between wet-lab and informatics efforts that provides an unprecedented opportunity to advance the field.
Located in Boston and the surrounding communities, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute is a leader in life changing breakthroughs in cancer research and patient care. We are united in our mission of conquering cancer, HIV/AIDS and related diseases. We strive to create an inclusive, diverse, and equitable environment where we provide compassionate and comprehensive care to patients of all backgrounds, and design programs to promote public health particularly among high-risk and underserved populations. We conduct groundbreaking research that advances treatment, we educate tomorrow's physician/researchers, and we work with amazing partners, including other Harvard Medical School-affiliated hospitals.
We are offering a leadership position for a very motivated candidate who will guide our wet-lab experiments and manage a wide variety of collaborations. The candidate will lead a group consisting of wet-lab scientists working together to study cancer using genome-wide approaches at both the bulk and single cell level. These experiments are undertaken as part of collaborations both internal and external to the CFCE. Job responsibilities include managing a group of research associates and scientists, mentoring students/interns, and optimizing new epigenetic protocols, particularly for clinical samples.?? In addition to these activities, the role will be actively involved in communicating with collaborators, designing experiments, performing data analysis, and writing scientific manuscripts.
At Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, we work every day to create an innovative, caring, and inclusive environment where every patient, family, and staff member feels they belong.?? As relentless as we are in our mission to reduce the burden of cancer for all, we are equally committed to diversifying our faculty and staff.?? Cancer knows no boundaries and when it comes to hiring the most dedicated and diverse professionals, neither do we. If working in this kind of organization inspires you, we encourage you to apply.
