A postdoctoral position is available for an outstanding candidate to study the impact of genomic alterations in head and neck cancer on anti-tumor immunity and response to molecular targeting agents. The lab is located in the Helen Diller Comprehensive Cancer Center on the exciting Mission Bay campus of the University of California at San Francisco.
The candidate will join an integrated, team-oriented, NIH-funded lab focused on translational and basic research in head and neck cancer. We utilize cell lines, PDXs, and immunocompetent mouse models, while also confirming findings in patient specimens. In addition to studying functional consequences of caspase-8 and PI3K gene mutations, we are seeking to identify synthetic lethal interactions to guide the development of new therapies.
The Johnson, Grandis, and Ha labs are immediately adjacent and form a rich environment for training and mentoring scientists at all levels. We have had excellent success advancing our trainees to independent academic faculty positions.
