A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Ivn DOrso in the Department of Microbiology at UT Southwestern Medical Center. The DOrso laboratory works at the cutting-edge of gene regulation networks in the context of normal and disease states, investigating cell signaling and transcriptional regulatory programs to illuminate the function of novel tumor suppressor/oncogenic pathways. Our laboratory has made major contributions to our understanding of the regulation and functions of transcription elongation complexes and non-coding RNAs in normal physiology and in the context of disease states (viral infections and cancer). We employ a wide array of approaches to study this biomedical research problem including molecular, biochemical, pharmacological, and genomics. We are seeking for candidates

that can apply experimental and computational approaches to interrogate how malfunction of gene regulatory networks can induce loss of tumor suppressor potential and malignancy, and how these processes can be therapeutically manipulated. Dr. DOrso has an excellent track of mentoring highly successful undergraduate, graduate and postdoctoral trainees and is committed to the career development of all laboratory members.


The successful candidate must hold a Ph.D. degree and be recent graduate, not having held an earlier postdoctoral position for more than about two years. Experience in cell culture, molecular biology, chromatin biology and epigenetics leading to publication in peer-reviewed journals is recommended.

Interested individuals should send a CV, statement of interests, and a list of at least two references

UT Southwestern Medical Center is an Affirmative Action / Equal Opportunity Employer. Women, minorities, veterans, and individuals with disabilities are encouraged to apply.

Company Profile
UT Southwestern Medical Center is distinctive for its overall quality and for the strength of its three core missions of education, research, and patient care. These mission components are highly interdependent; each is integral to and enhances the others. The results of basic science, translational, and clinical research inform the patient care we provide; research projects are influenced by the desire to understand the causes of disease and the hope of designing new—and effective—treatments and cures; and our students and trainees are exposed to innovative scientific thinking and clinical expertise, and in turn, stimulate our faculty to remain at the cutting edge of their fields. UT Southwestern is proud of its distinguished record of breakthrough scientific discoveries, outstanding medical education and training, and excellence in patient care. Founded in 1943 as a private medical school by a group of prominent Dallas citizens, it became part of the University of Texas System in 1949, and has evolved over the years to become one of the leading academic medical centers in the country.
