A Scientist position is open to join the Burns laboratory in the Department of Oncologic Pathology at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. We are looking for a Scientist to provide scientific leadership to our existing and upcoming projects. Our group studies high copy number repeats in the human genome, and the biology of the retrotransposons and endogenous retroviruses that generate these sequences. We and others have shown that subsets of these normally silenced elements are expressed as a hallmark of human cancers, and that this results in somatically-acquired retrotransposon insertions in cancer genomes. We aim to more fully characterize this phenomenon; to probe its consequences for cancer biology using models of cancer growth and tumor immunology; and to leverage our understandings to inform cancer detection and treatment. The lab is moving from Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, and the successful candidate will be one of the first to establish the group at DFCI. He/she will...
