postdoctoral position

Posted by: Sun Yat-sen University

Posted date: Sep-15-2017

Location: Guangzhou, China

Apply for a postdoctoral position on cancer RNA epigenetics in the Wang Lab (Sun Yat-sen University, Guangzhou, China)


Our goal is to understand the roles of RNA modification (particularly for m6A modification) on the progression of cancer biology and its related mechanisms. Proliferation, differentiation, metastasis and chemoresistance contribute cancer progression. The dynamic changes of RNA, especially mRNA of key genes, are involved and regulate this process. Increasing evidences suggested that RNA epigenetics including m6A modification can modulate the mRNA transcription, splicing, subcellular translocation, translation, and stability. However, the detailed mechanisms are largely unknown. Our group focus on the roles of m6A modification on the expression of key genes involved in cancer biology. Our lab comprises a group of creative, thoughtful, and motivated individuals at all career stages, including undergraduates, graduate students, postdocs and research professionals.
