The Greehey Children’s Cancer Research Institute (GCCRI) at the University of Texas Health Science Center – San Antonio is looking for an outstanding postdoctoral fellow to work in the laboratory of Yuzuru Shiio, M.D., Ph.D. 

We are seeking highly motivated candidates who have a strong background in molecular cell biology, particularly characterization of protein functions and signaling pathways using cell culture, immunoblotting, immunoprecipitation, and immunofluorescence, and who have high-quality research publications. The ability to think independently is the key criterion for this search. Employing a combination of proteomics and molecular cell biology approaches, our laboratory works on cytokine signaling and fusion oncoproteins in children’s cancers.  Please see the Shiio webpage at for further information about our work. 

The successful candidate will receive extensive training on proteomics-based discovery (secretome and cell surface proteomics to identify cytokines and receptors important in different children’s cancers, and interactome proteomics to identify novel protein – protein interactions) and follow-up of proteomic findings (molecular cell biological characterization of protein functions and signaling).

Candidates should express their interest in the position by email and should include their career goals, research experience and interests, curriculum vitae with publication record, and contact information for three references.  Please send an email of interest to for consideration.

All Postdoctoral appointments are designated as security sensitive positions. The UT Health Science Center at San Antonio is an Equal Employment Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.
