Postdoctoral Research Associate

A Postdoctoral Research position working with Dr. Andrew S. Kraft, Director of University of Arizona Cancer Center in Tucson, Arizona is available. The research will focus on investigating the ability of the Pim protein kinases to control the growth and metastasis of cancer, e.g. prostate, using knock-out and knock-in mice, cell culture, and novel small molecule kinase inhibitors (MCB 34:2517, 2014, Oncogene 34: 3728, 2015). Research will investigate the control of signaling pathways; identify substrates, and the interaction of Pim with other protein kinases, including AKT and mTOR. A strong background in protein chemistry, molecular and cellular biology, and experience working with mice is needed.
