Postdoctoral Fellow Position at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center
We are seeking highly motivated and inventive individuals to join the research laboratory of Daniel Higginson, MD and Simon Powell, MD PhD, in the Department of Radiation Oncology at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Tumors differ in both DNA repair capacity and repair pathway choice following treatment with DNA damaging agents, such as radiation therapy and platinum chemotherapy. We study the germline and somatic genetic determinants of repair phenotypes with the overall goal to individualize patient care. A special focus is the alternative end-joining pathway, used within tumor and normal tissue following radiation therapy.
Relevant skills include molecular biology, tissue culture, flow cytometry, confocal microscopy and tumor xenograft work.
If interested, please send CV, cover letter and contact information from 2 references to Tonza Spruill (email@example.com). Additional information regarding potential projects will be provided through initial discussions via phone.
