Postdoctoral Positions in Biology

Sloan Kettering Memorial Cancer Center

Company overview

 The people of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) are united by a singular mission: ending cancer for life. Our specialized care teams provide personalized, compassionate, expert care to patients of all ages. Informed by basic research done at our Sloan Kettering Institute, scientists across MSK collaborate to conduct innovative translational and clinical research that is driving a revolution in our understanding of cancer as a disease and improving the ability to prevent, diagnose, and treat it. MSK is dedicated to training the next generation of scientists and clinicians, who go on to pursue our mission at MSK and around the globe. One of the world’s most respected comprehensive centers devoted exclusively to cancer, we have been recognized as one of the top two cancer hospitals in the country by U.S. News & World Report for more than 30 years.

 

Vaccination for COVID-19 and Influenza (flu) is mandatory for all MSK staff. Staff are considered fully vaccinated upon completion of a primary vaccination series for COVID-19 (i.e., one dose of a single dose vaccine or a final dose of a multi-dose vaccine series). Exceptions from the COVID-19 and Influenza (flu) vaccine requirements are permitted for those who request and receive an approved medical, religious, or fully remote exemption.  Requests for exemption can take up to two weeks to review. Vaccination or an approved exemption is required to start work.

Job details

The Marians laboratory’s long-standing interests have been in the nature of replication fork operations, the mechanisms of replication fork restart, and the results of collisions between the replication fork and transcription complexes and R-loops. Our approach is centered on biochemical reconstitution experiments using purified proteins and specialized templates to model these processes. We have recently shifted our primary focus from using bacterial proteins to using human proteins to develop these in vitro systems. (https://www.mskcc.org/research/ski/labs/kenneth-j-marians)

 

The laboratory is part of an exceptionally strong group of researchers investigating diverse aspects of genome integrity in the Molecular Biology Program of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (https://www.mskcc.org/research-areas/programs-centers/molecular-biology).

 

Postdoctoral positions are available for appropriately trained, creative individuals who are interested in how human replication acts both as a genome stabilizer and, when corrupted, as a genome destabilizer. Extensive biochemical training is a must. Familiarity with mammalian overexpression systems is a plus.

 

Interested parties should submit applications to Kenneth Marians at mariansk@mskcc.org and copying Juyoun Hong at hongj6@mskcc.org
