Qualified postdoctoral candidates are invited to join the laboratory of Dr. Yool Lee, at the Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine, Department of Translational Medicine and Physiology, Washington State University.
Research focus in the Lee Lab is understanding biological mechanisms of circadian physiology and behaviors; molecular and cellular impact of circadian disruptions on tumor heterogeneity, tumor microenvironment, and metastatic progression; and translational applications of circadian physiology for the treatment of cancer and aging-related pathologies using nutritional, metabolic, pharmacological interventions. Our disease emphasis is cancer and related neurodegenerative diseases and our model systems are cellular and animal.
Candidates with a doctoral degree (Ph.D., M.D or equivalent) and strong background in molecular & cellular biology, pharmacology, biochemistry immunology, oncology, neuroscience, or medicine are encouraged to apply. Experience in the field of molecular and cellular biology, cancer, aging, bioinformatics, or epigenetics is preferred. Experience and/or interest in circadian clock and sleep research is highly desirable.
Washington State University is an Equal Opportunity Employer/Affirmative Action Educator and Employer which provides a stimulating and collaborative environment for biomedical research. Dr. Lee’s Lab works closely with members of the WSU Sleep Performance and Research Center. Spokane and the surrounding area offer great living and outdoor opportunities.
Include a cover letter (with statement of prior experience and research interests), CV, and contact information for 3 references.
