Phillips Lab 

University of Pennsylvania

Abramson Cancer Center and the Epigenetics Institute


This posting is for research positions in the Phillips Lab .


The focus of the lab is to investigate mechanisms of epigenetic regulation which drive brain cancer. The lab employs a range of techniques including in vivo models, molecular biology, single-cell genomic approaches to address questions with the findings setting the stage for novel treatments for these aggressive cancers. Candidates with a background in computational biology, cancer biology or epigenetics are highly desireable though talented and motivated individuals with a variety of backgrounds will be strongly considered.


We are recruiting at the post-doctoral and research assistant level.
