A research position (Ph.D. level or equivalent) is immediately available in a cancer research lab (Xuefeng Liu, Principal Investigator) at Georgetown University Center for Cell Reprogramming and Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center.

The focus of the lab is to study the mechanisms of cell immortalization by oncogenic viruses and telomerase, and patient-derived cancer models (CRCs and CDXs). To achieve these goals, we utilize patient-derived tissue samples and establish conditionally reprogrammed cell cultures (CRCs) using CR technology and CRCs-derived xenografts (CDXs) and validate translational use of these models in prostate, breast and head and neck cancers. We will also use high-throughput screening approaches along with state-of-the-art bioinformatics through collaboration with experts in the field. 

We are seeking highly motivated, Ph.D. level researchers with prior in-depth training in cancer research as demonstrated by peer-reviewed publications. Fundamental molecular biology/cell biology skills are also required (e.g., cell culture, cloning, gene-editing, virus-mediated gene expression, and light microscopy). The position(s) will be supported by NIH funding with comparable salary and fringe benefit.

Overall cancer research at Georgetown is on an exciting, rapid growth phase and provides enormous opportunities for us to positively impact the lives of cancer patients through innovative basic and translational research. Please submit a brief introduction of your academic/research background, curriculum vitae, and contact info for three references to Successful candidates will be contacted via email.
