Cancer Cell Signaling and Systems Biologist

Discovery. Delivery. Comprehensiveness.

Join our Scientific Teams at the UNM Comprehensive Cancer Center

Join a dynamic and rapidly growing team of more than 250 world-class scientists and physicians at the University of New Mexico Comprehensive Cancer Center (UNMCCC). As one of the nation’s 47 National Cancer Institute Designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers, our team is particularly focused on discovering the causes and cures for cancers that disproportionately affect the people of the American Southwest – primarily Hispanic, American Indian, and Non-Hispanic White – with strikingly different patterns of cancer incidence, mortality and disparity. Supported by more than $70 million annually in cancer-focused funding, the UNMCCC has outstanding research programs in Cancer Control and Cancer Health Disparities; Cancer Genetics, Epigenetics, and Genomics; Cancer Cell and Systems Biology; and Cancer Therapeutics. These programs house several national centers including: The Molecular Discovery and High Throughput Target Screening Center (; one of the nation’s 6 Chemical Biology Consortium Centers of Excellence in The NCI NExT Program; one of 13 NIH National Centers for Systems Biology: The New Mexico Center for the Spatiotemporal Modeling of Cell Signaling (; and a NIH Clinical and Translational Sciences Center. Rich collaborations with UNMCCC consortium partners (Sandia and Los Alamos National Laboratories; Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute) with unparalleled computing infrastructure and outstanding scientific teams enhance computational, informatics, and systems biology research, inform clinical intervention strategies, and support cutting-edge training programs. The UNMCCC is also a member of the ORIEN National Network engaged in cancer precision medicine, genome sequencing, data sharing, cancer clinical trials and collaborative research (

Cancer Cell Signaling and Systems Biology

Seeking expertise in cancer cell biology, signal transduction, and systems biology particularly focused on dissecting the mechanisms of perturbed oncogenic signaling in cancer cells, analysis and modeling of pathways that mediate response or resistance to targeted therapies, signaling in the context of the tumor microenvironment, and signaling perturbations that enhance or inhibit the immune response to cancer cells.
