Postdoctoral Research Associate

Postdoc positions are available in the laboratory of Kwon Park, Department of Microbiology, Immunology, and Cancer Biology at University of Virginia. This laboratory of cancer genetics is looking for highly motivated postdocs who are interested in mechanisms of lung cancer development and progression. With the overarching goal of functionally defining the lung cancer genome, we have been characterizing recurrent alterations in the patient tumors using genetically engineered mouse model and precancerous cell-based model (Genes Dev 2016; Cancer Discovery 2018). Postdocs will join our efforts in understanding how the lung cancer mutations deregulate interactions among tumor cells and also between tumor cell and microenvironment, particularly immune cells, and how mutant cells alter metabolism and adapt to cellular stress during tumor development. The laboratory is fully committed to providing an excellent training opportunity for postdoctoral fellow to conduct innovative research on lung cancer and to developing her/his career towards independent investigator position. More information on the laboratory research can be found at https://med.virginia.edu/faculty/faculty-listing/kp5an/

The qualified candidate has a PhD or MD degree and a strong background in biochemistry and/or molecular and cell biology. Although additional experience in metabolism and immunology is plus, anyone willing to learn and apply new methods to address challenging problems is welcome. This position will be available immediately. Interested individual should send to at kp5an@virginia.edu a CV and a statement that summarizes background, research interest, and career goal. Please indicate "postdoc application" in the subject line. Please also send an e-mail inquiry to the same address if you have any questions.
