Postdoctoral Fellowship Position, Microbiome and Cancer
We have an immediate opening for a 1st or 2nd year postdoctoral fellow to join a translational prostate cancer research group at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. The laboratory is a collaborative research environment and the fellow will work both independently and as part of multidisciplinary teams. We are seeking a fellow who will contribute to ongoing research interests of the laboratory in studying the influence of the genitourinary and gastrointestinal microbiome on prostate cancer development, progression, and therapeutic response. The laboratory has a strong translational focus and most projects involve working with human samples and tissues as well as samples collected as part of clinical trials. The ideal candidate will have a strong background and skills in molecular biology, cancer biology, and/or microbiology and ideally experience working with samples for microbiome studies as well as familiarity with associated statistical methods and data analysis.
The candidate should also have strong writing and communication skills and a solid track record of scientific achievement as documented by peer-reviewed scientific journal publications.
