Postdoctoral Research Scientist
A Postdoctoral Research Scientist position is available immediately for a highly motivated candidate to work on a new NCI-funded project investigating the relationship between relative biological effectiveness (RBE) of heavy-ion radiotherapy and the response of pancreatic cancer, as well as the potential combination of heavy-ion radiotherapy and the induction of ferroptosis. The study uses both cellular models and KPC mouse models to address these central questions. Our laboratory is in the Center for Radiological Research (crr.columbia.edu) in the Department of Radiation Oncology at Columbia University Irving Medical Center in Upper Manhattan. This project is a collaboration with investigators in the Mouse Hospital (https://www.olivelab.org), a facility dedicated to pre-clinical studies for developing new pancreatic cancer treatments. Some studies will require irradiations using our heavy-ion facility at the Radiation Research Accelerator Facility (www.raraf.org/) located in Westchester County, upstate New York, and beamlines at Brookhaven National Laboratory on Long Island. This is an outstanding opportunity to work with investigators in leading radiation biology and pancreatic cancer laboratories.
Candidates must have PhD and /or MD degree with experience in molecular biology, cell culture and/or mouse models, as well as excellent communication and writing skills. A background in radiation science, cancer biology, and/or immunology is also strongly preferred.
