A Postdoctoral Fellow position is available in Dr. Wenqi Wang’s laboratory at Department of Developmental and Cell Biology, University of California Irvine, to study the Hippo signaling pathway in organ size control and cancer development.
We are taking advantage of multi-disciplinary approaches including molecular biology, biochemistry, cell biology, mouse genetics, proteomics to investigate the roles of the Hippo pathway in normal physiology and cancer. Through it, we hope to develop therapeutic approaches by harnessing the Hippo pathway for cancer treatment. Please see our publications for details (Genes Dev 2012, Mol Cell Proteomics 2014, Nat Cell Biol 2015, Dev Cell 2015, Mol Syst Biol 2015, Cell Rep 2015, Cell Rep 2016, Mol Cell Proteomics 2016, Oncogene 2017, EMBO J 2017, Oncogene 2018, Mol Cell 2018, EMBO J 2020, Cell Rep 2020).
We are seeking a highly motivated, independent, and career-oriented candidate with excellent research training in molecular biology, biochemistry, cell biology or cancer biology. We prefer candidates who are about to graduate with PhD or MD/PhD degree, or have graduated within the last 12 months. A track record of excellent first author publication(s) is required. The salary and benefit will follow the NIH standard.
To apply, please submit your curriculum vitae and the contact information to Wenqi Wang via email email@example.com
