The Pankaj Singh lab at the newly established Department of Oncology Science and the NCI-designated OU Health Stephenson Cancer Center is recruiting an enthusiastic and motivated Research Assistant Professor for our very dynamic and goal-oriented research team. The research project involves investigating signal transduction and metabolic alterations in pancreatic cancer cells, tumor-stromal crosstalk, therapy resistance, metastasis, and immunometabolism, using cutting-edge technologies and multi-omics platforms.

  • A successful candidate should have a Ph.D. in the relevant field with a strong theoretical background in basic biochemistry and molecular biology and/or human physiology. The candidate should be well versed with basic molecular biology and cell culture techniques. Some LC-MS/MS, bioinformatics, and small-animal research experience is preferred but not required. Candidate will be expected to lead research projects, mentor students and postdoctoral researchers in the lab, and participate in grant writing and general lab management.

Our state-of-the art research program utilizes multi-omics approaches, including sc-RNA-seq, bulk RNAseq, epigenomics, metabolomics, proteomics, organoid cultures, and genetically engineered mouse models and organoid models. Our program is well-funded by NCI, with multiple R01 grants and program/center projects focused on pancreatic cancer.

Salary will range between US$70,000 to US$90,000, plus benefits, depending on research, grant-writing, and team management experience.
