The Department of Surgery at the University of Nebraska Medical Center has an opening for a Postdoctoral Research Associate position in an NCI-funded laboratory. Applicants must have an MD, PhD, or equivalent. The research will focus on developing large animal models of cancer, and will require expertise in cancer biology and methods of molecular biology, gene transfer, gene editing, biochemistry, cell biology, cell culture, and vertebrate animal models, including genetically-engineered mice. No prior experience with swine handling is required. The basic strategy will be derivation, characterization, and validation of novel cancer cell lines and viral vectors for in vivo studies. The project will be directed by Dr. Mark Carlson. An emphasis will be placed on laboratory technical expertise, scientific experimental design, problem-solving abilities, collaborative skills, communication skills (written and oral), and grantsmanship. Salary and benefits will be commensurate with experience. Applications are now being accepted online at http://unmc.peopleadmin.com/postings/37473.
