Research Assistant - Prof. Chng Wee Joo's Lab
Cancer Science Institute of Singapore | Open until filled

Senior Research Scientist - Prof. Ashok's Lab
Cancer Science Institute of Singapore | Open until filled

Are you a biomedical researcher motivated to pursue an outstanding career in cancer research with a focus on structural biology? Cancer will affect more than 1 in 3 Singaporeans. At the Cancer Science Institute (CSI), our mission is to be at the global forefront of research to overcome this scourge. Our innovative international faculty, cutting-edge facilities, supportive working environment and competitive package together enable each of our staff to realize their maximum potential. We now seek a Research Scientist/ Senior Research Scientist to join the team of Prof. Ashok Venkitaraman. This is an exciting opportunity to work closely with a world-leading cancer researcher to undertake pioneering research on the role of genome instability in human carcinogenesis (eg., see Venkitaraman Science (2014) PMID:24675954 and Venkitaraman DNA Repair (2019) PMID:31337537). This position will be jointly under Dr. Tan Yong Zi, who is an expert on single-particle cryogenic electron microscopy (cryo-EM) (see https://www.tyzlab.com/). His lab is a core member of the Centre for BioImaging Sciences' (CBIS), and have access to high-end cryo-EM microscopes, including a Titan Krios with K3 direct detector and energy filter. The aim of this joint position is to use cryo-EM to help solve the structures of many exciting cancer complexes to help with potential drug development.

Research Assistant - Prof. Goh Boon Cher's Lab
Cancer Science Institute of Singapore | Open until filled

The laboratory of Prof Goh Boon Cher at the Cancer Science Institute of Singapore is looking for a motivated candidate for a Research Assistant position. The established research group focuses on discovering novel cancer biomarkers to stratify high risk tumours for therapeutic interventions, by incorporating genomics, proteomics and high throughput technologies. Specifically, the successful candidate will be tasked to establish relevant tumour organoids/primary culture to improve understanding of tumour development and progression. The candidate will work alongside senior scientists to establish these cancer models. This project will cover a variety of experimental approaches, which include but not limited to molecular cloning, genome editing and bioimaging. As part of the lab responsibility, the candidate will also be involved in the biomarker screening workflow to support the ongoing clinical trials.

Research Fellow (Bioinformatician) - A/Prof. Polly Chen's Lab
Cancer Science Institute of Singapore | Open until filled

A postdoctoral position is available immediately in A/Prof Polly Chen’s groups for a highly motivated PhD graduate with experience in Bioinformatics (computational genomics). The focus of A/P Polly Chen’s lab is on the transcriptome-wide identification of RNA changes (e.g., RNA editing, alterative splicing, altered protein-RNA interactions, etc) in tumors and functional investigation of these changes in cancer.

Core Facility Manager - Dr Jason Pitt/ A.Prof. Touati's Lab
Cancer Science Institute of Singapore | Open until filled
