A postdoctoral research position is now available at Vanderbilt University in the area of cancer metastasis and drug delivery. The King Lab is focused on using native immune cells as carriers for anti-cancer therapeutics, to target disseminating tumor cells and prevent the lymphatic and bloodborne spread of cancer. Ph.D. applicants should be experienced in xenograft mouse models of cancer metastasis. Expertise in cancer immunotherapy and nanoparticle technology is welcome, but not required.
