Discover Your Career at Emory University

Emory University is a leading research university that fosters excellence and attracts world-class talent to innovate today and prepare leaders for the future. We welcome candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of our academic community.



Postdoctoral positions are immediately available in the established and cutting-edge laboratory of Dr. Janghee Woo in the Department of Hematology and Medical Oncology at the Winship Cancer Institute, Emory University, Atlanta, Georgia. Our primary project focuses on investigating the role of clonal hematopoiesis in various disease conditions and the genomic characterization of hematologic disorders using single-cell technology.


The Woo lab is an integral part of the highly collaborative and interdisciplinary translational research program at the Winship Cancer Institute, Emory School of Medicine, Atlanta. Our research goal is to understand the molecular mechanisms of hematologic disorders, particularly focusing on the biological and molecular consequences of clonal hematopoiesis and developing novel therapeutic modalities for hematological malignancies. We are seeking energetic and motivated postdoctoral researchers in basic hematology, immunology, and molecular biology to contribute to several ongoing and exciting projects within our team.

We aim to characterize abnormal hematopoiesis and the aberrant immune microenvironment mediated by clonal hematopoiesis in both patients and animal models. Additionally, we will perturb pathways of interest using therapeutic compounds in collaboration with internal and external investigators, as well as pharmaceutical companies. Our approach is grounded in utilizing patient samples obtained through our close clinical collaborations, innovative mouse models, and ex-vivo assays to discover novel pathways and aberrant cellular interactions via develop novel human clinical trials aimed at modulating signaling pathways and regulating gene expression. These positions will also provide candidates with opportunities to collaborate closely with our academic and industry partners, oncologists, and surgeons in addressing mechanistic questions for cutting-edge clinical trials.


Strong background in hematology, immunology, and molecular biology. Qualified applicants should have authored first-author research paper(s) published in peer-reviewed journals. Ideal candidates should possess hands-on experience in cell culture and related hematological and molecular techniques, particularly flow cytometry, library construction, real-time PCR, and Western blots. Candidates should also have experience in mouse handling, conducting and interpreting flow cytometry and genomic data. The ability to design, evaluate, and report research is essential. Excellent verbal and written communication skills are required.


Interested applicants are encouraged to apply online  to include a cover letter outlining research interests, CV, and the contact information of three referees. inquires cand be sent to:Janghee.woo@emory.edu,
