Postdoctoral Fellow position
Postdoctoral Fellow positions are immediately available in Dr. Li Ma’s lab at MD Anderson Cancer Center. This lab studies metastasis (Nature Medicine 2012), tumor radioresistance (Nature Cell Biology 2014; Nature Communications 2014), and regulation of key breast cancer proteins and pathways (Nature Cell Biology 2013; Nature Cell Biology 2014).
Current projects include: (1) studying the role of non-coding RNAs and developmental regulators in malignant progression; (2) screening for deubiquitinating enzymes that promote tumorigenesis, metastasis, or therapy resistance.
