Current Positions available (4/09/21) 

Postdoctoral fellows to conduct translational research in TGFβ and cancer.    Three funded projects are available.  One project is translational research to investigate the role of TGFβ in cancer treatment using in vitro and in vivo preclinical models representative of different cancers, including glioblastoma.  Another research project is to study mammary carcinogenesis and tumor progression in vivo using a large data set of existing specimens.   A third project will further develop a new mouse model of breast cancer using multiplex analyses to define DNA damage response and their immune features in response to radiation and immune checkpoint blockade.

Postdoctoral fellows will be responsible for executing experiments designed with the principal investigator, analyzing data and preparing data for publication and presentation. Some supervision of students and staff will be required.

All positions require the following:

  • Doctoral degree in radiation, cell or cancer biology within the last 3 years or in the process of soon obtaining a PhD in one of these related fields
  • Demonstrated ability to work independently in planning, executing, and interpreting experiments
  • Knowledge of relevant literature and methodology

Desirable but not required:

  • Experience with mouse models of cancer
  • Detailed knowledge of the DNA damage response or TGFβ biology
  • Experience with bioinformatics, flow cytometry, microscopy or image analysis
