Lab of Prof Dana Alsulaiman, Division of Physical Science and Engineering (PSE) at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST)
“Development and Validation of anti-microRNA Therapeutics for Personalized Medicine in Cancer”
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position or MS/PhD in the Alsulaiman lab at KAUST. The applicant will focus on developing and validating therapies for cancer based on targeting and blocking microRNA using synthetic nucleic acid-based therapeutic agents. The project will involve collaboration work with local hospitals for clinical specimens as well as international world-leading universities.
The candidate must possess expertise in six techniques listed below. For postdoc applicants: this must be demonstrated through published high-impact peer-reviewed articles. Applicants must have received their Ph.D. degrees within the past 5 years.
