Position

Last update, Oct 19, 2019

We have a live job advertisement on science careers.

We are seeking motivated graduate students and postdoctoral fellows (both computational and experimental). Candidates are welcome to contact Dr. Zheng for suitability and schedule meetings to discuss our projects.  This post will be updated if openings are filled.

General qualification For postdoc positions, a first author paper in a peer reviewed journal is the minimum requirement. Computational postdoc candidates should be proficient in R and at least one common programming languages (python, perl, java, etc). Candidates with working experience in sequencing data are highly favored. Knowledge in cancer biology is a plus but not required.

For experimental position, candidates are expected to work independently, and are familiar with common techniques used in cytogenetics.

Benefits We provide competitive salary (higher than NIH standard) and other benefits (health insurance, retirement plan, etc). San Antonio is the 7th largest city in the US, and has a very affordable living cost. UT Health San Antonio is one component of the 14 institutions comprising The University of Texas System and is the largest university health science center in South Texas.  Formerly known as the Cancer Therapy & Research Center, the UT Health Cancer Center is one of only four National Cancer Institute-designated cancer centers in Texas.

Documents interested candidates should send CV, a cover letter, and contact information of three referees to Dr. Siyuan Zheng (zhengs3 at uthscsa dot edu). Feedback is generally expected in a week.
