Post Doctoral Appointee

We are seeking candidates for a postdoctoral position in the laboratory of Dr. Jaeyeon Kim, an Assistant Professor, in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and the Melvin & Bren Simon Cancer Center at Indiana University School of Medicine (IUSM).

Applying genetically engineered mouse models, combined with molecular and genetic approaches, Dr. Kim’s lab focuses on uncovering the molecular etiology and mechanism of ovarian cancer: how it initiates, progresses, and metastasizes, escalating to an incurable malignancy. Among the prime interests is to define the molecular basis underlying the interactions between genes and hormone in the development, progression, and metastasis of ovarian cancer. His research also aims to understand the role of epigenetic changes in the progression of ovarian cancer. Besides, applying insights from these mouse models, his lab is also investigating the origin and molecular mechanism of triple-negative breast cancer.

Qualified candidates must have or expect to receive a PhD degree in biomedical or biological science with previous postdoctoral training of fewer than two years. Critical for a successful candidate is research experience with mice or mouse models accompanied by molecular and cellular biology skills, including cloning, cell culture, PCR, QPCR, western blot, flow cytometry, immunohistochemistry, and immunofluorescence. More vital than experimental skills, though, are motivation and commitment to research and science­­―equipped with­­ the ability to work independently as well as interactively and harmoniously with PI and other researchers in the lab. 

Qualified candidates will need to upload a cover letter (including research experience), CV, and names of three references at http://indiana.peopleadmin.com/postings/6002 or send them directly to jaeyeonk@iu.edu.
