Dr. Biplab Dasgupta’s laboratory is looking for a highly motivated, self-driven and ambitious postdoctoral researcher to start this winter in the Division of Oncology. Using genetically engineered mouse models and human tissue, the Dasgupta lab has been engaged in cutting-edge research to understand neural stem cell metabolism, genetic and metabolic uniqueness of glioblastoma (a type of brain tumor) subtypes, energy and nutrient sensing signaling pathways in cancer versus normal cellular counterparts and the built-in metabolic vulnerabilities of human cancer cells. We are also deeply interested to understand the mechanisms by which non-genetic factors regulate the incidence and penetrance of human cancer. We have published our work in highly visible journals including Science Advances, Cell Reports, Nature Cell Biology, Nature Communications, PNAS, Cancer Cell, Neuro-Oncology, Cancer Research and Trends in Pharmacological Sciences. Interested applicants may submit their CV and contact Dr. Dasgupta via email
