Looking for an exceptional post-doctoral fellow for a full-time position to study head and neck cancer in the Michigan Otolaryngology and Translational Oncology Lab. The mission of this lab is to facilitate the discovery, validation, and implementation of candidate target genes/proteins in disease diagnosis, prognosis, and therapy. This fellow position will focus on discovery of PI3K inhibitor resistance mechanisms and understanding the interplay between PI3K inhibitors and response to immunotherapy using both genome-wide open reading frame and CRISPR screens as well as single cell analysis techniques (scRNAseq and CyTOF). The lab leverages a multi-disciplinary approach, engaging talent from diverse disciplines focused on molecular and immune profiling of clinical specimens to rigorous bioinformatics and biostatistics, and the techniques the fellow will learn are expected to help them move forward in their career with strong discovery and mechanistic-based scientific tools.
- Ph.D. in cancer biology, immunology or related cancer field.
- Experience with functional biology of cancer models.
- Expertise in mouse models of cancer.
- Basic experience and willingness to learn simple bioinformatics analysis.
- Strong organizational, record keeping and leadership skills.
- Exceptional ability to work with a team.
- Willingness to learn new techniques.
- Excellent oral and written communication skills are required.
