Postdoctoral Fellow in Cancer Biology
A postdoctoral position is immediately available in the laboratory of Dr. Zheng Fu in the Department of Human and Molecular Genetics and the VCU Institute of Molecular Medicine at Virginia Commonwealth University, School of Medicine. The main research focus in Dr. Fu’s laboratory is to elucidate the molecular mechanisms of cell cycle control and genomic stability maintenance. The aim is to understand how deregulation of these physiological processes contributes to carcinogenesis and ultimately apply the findings to the development of novel, improved, and targeted cancer therapies (Cell Reports 28:2147; Elife 5: e10734; Nat Cell Biol. 10:1076; J Clin Invest. 119:2714).
Dr. Fu’s laboratory is seeking highly qualified, dedicated individuals with a commitment to research excellence. The successful candidate should have a PhD or MD degree with a strong background in molecular biology, cell biology, and/or biochemistry. Research experience in animal models would be an advantage. The candidates must also have strong organizational, written, and verbal communication skills in English.
Candidates interested in the position should send a cover letter with a brief summary of research experience and interests, an updated CV, and contact information for three references to Dr. Zheng Fu (Email: Lilia.Gheghiani@vcuhealth.org).
