A post-doctoral position is available at the Center for Prostate Disease Research (CPDR), Uniformed Services University of the Health Science (USUHS) to study the genomics of aggressive renal medullary carcinoma (RMC), which is associated with the sickle cell trait (SCT). This project is funded by the Collaborative Health Initiative Research Program (CHIRP), a new precision medicine collaborative research program between the NHLBI and USUHS. The successful candidate will perform studies on archival specimens to identify genomic alterations and transcriptomic profiles associated with RMC and uncover biological mechanisms underlying the linkage to SCT. The goal is to enhance the understanding of this deadly cancer and identify clinically actionable mutations. The candidate will work under the supervision of Dr. Shyh-Han Tan,  in collaboration with Dr. Isabell Sesterhenn at the Joint Pathology Center. The candidate will have access to state-of-the-art sequencing facility and bioinformatics infrastructure through the collaborative support of Dr. Clifton Dalgard, Director CHIRP Sequencing Laboratory Core and  Dr. Matthew Wilkerson, Director of the  CHIRP Bioinformatics Core.
