Mentor:  Dr. Sunil Sudarshan, MD, Associate Professor, University of Alabama at Birmingham, Department of Urology. FOT 1105, 510 20th Street South, Birmingham AL 35294-6810 Email: sudarshan@uab.edu



We are seeking a full-time postdoctoral position in the field of kidney cancer.  The position will examine the epigenetic means by which kidney tumors remodel metabolism.  Specifically, this project will examine the mechanism by which transcriptional regulators are altered in kidney cancer and the impact of these changes on metabolism and carcinogenesis.  This project has recently been funded by a 4-year extramural grant.  Our laboratory has an established track record in the field of kidney cancer and metabolism as demonstrated by our recent publications in well-respected journals (Cancer Discov. 2014 Nov;4(11):1290-8; J Biol Chem. 2014 Aug 29;289(35):24691-9; Mol Cell. 2013 Jul 25;51(2):236-48.; Oncogene. 2013 Apr 18;32(16):2027-36; PLoS One. 2011;6(6):e21037; Mol Cell Biol. 2009 Aug;29(15):4080-90.)   

The candidate must be well-motivated with a strong background in cell/molecular biology.  Training in methodologies including chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) and bioinformatics is preferred, but not required. Candidates need to demonstrate independence and the ability to communicate. 

Ph.D. and/or M.D. degree is required. Highly motivated individuals are encouraged to send their CV and contact information for 3 references to: Sunil Sudarshan, M.D. email:  sudarshan@uab.edu
