Job #JPF07195
  • Biological Chemistry / School of Medicine / UC Irvine

Application Window

Open October 28th, 2021 through Thursday, Jun 30, 2022 at 11:59pm (Pacific Time)

Position description

An NIH-funded postdoctoral fellow position is immediately available in the Masri Lab at the University of California, Irvine (UC Irvine). We are seeking independent and motivated postdocs interested in a multi-disciplinary approach to genomics, cancer biology and metabolism broadly defined. Appointment as a Postdoctoral Scholar requires a doctoral degree (e.g., Ph.D., M.D.) or the foreign equivalent.

The Masri lab studies how disruption of the circadian clock impacts tumorigenesis by regulating stem cell biology, cellular metabolism and signaling pathways governing survival and proliferation. We utilize both genetically engineered mice as well as tumor organoid models to dissect fundamental questions in cancer biology linked to gene expression, single-cell sequencing, whole exome sequencing, metabolomics analysis, and metagenomic sequencing of the gut microbiome. The ideal candidate will leverage computational approaches to dissect innovative questions in circadian biology.

For more details about the Masri Lab, including relevant publications, please visit our website at:

The Masri Lab is part of the Department of Biological Chemistry, Center for Epigenetics and Metabolism, and the Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center at UC Irvine. We are located in Southern California (Orange County), between Los Angeles and San Diego. For further details about UC Irvine, please visit:
