Job Type: 

ABRAMSON - Abramson Building Req ID: 27272

Shift: Days

Employment Status: AF - Active - Regular - Full Time 

Job Summary

A postdoctoral fellow position is available at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, to investigate cytokine receptor signaling in replication stress and DNA repair. Dr. Tong’s laboratory studies cytokine receptor and ubiquitin signaling in hematopoietic stem cells, bone marrow failure, and leukemia. Hematopoietic stem cells give rise to all circulating blood cells throughout life. Maintenance of stem cell self-renewal, proliferation and differentiation is regulated by complex signaling pathways. Aberrant regulation leads to leukemia. Genome integrity plays a critical role in the prevention of leukemia, ageing, and blood development. This postdoctoral fellow position will focus on studying the mechanisms that safeguard the genome during DNA replication and investigating how failures in these processes impact hematopoietic stem cell function that leads to bone marrow failure and/or leukemia.
