A Postdoctoral Research Fellow position is available immediately in the laboratory of Dr. Liang Liu at the Hormel Institute, University of Minnesota. Our laboratory pursues both basic and translational cancer research using a combination of functional genomics and bioinformatics analysis, cell-based studies, clinical tumor specimens, and mouse models.
