Patients with ulcerative colitis have a higher risk of colorectal cancer, although the underlying mechanisms are largely unknown. This project will be based on a research platform of a case-cohort study on colorectal cancer among ulcerative colitis patients. The aim is to explore whether specific bacterial species are associated with more severe inflammation, and in turn lead to the development of colorectal cancer. The project might help improve a colorectal cancer risk prediction tool for individualized management of the patients.
The applicant will perform laboratory experiments, focusing on intestinal microbiome for this project. Also, the candidate should perform statistical analyses as well as draft manuscript under supervision of senior researchers. This is a position of 1 year. Questions regarding the role, please contact professor Weimin Ye. Contact information can be found below.
The applicant should have enthusiasm on research and have the ability to collaborate with colleagues. Proficiency in English is required. Due to the multidisciplinary nature of this project, the applicant is expected to have master degrees on both molecular biology and epidemiology (public health). Knowledge on bioinformatics and biostatistics is meritorious.
