Job Details

A Postdoctoral fellow position is available in the Department of Experimental Therapeutics, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, TX, United States. This position reports to Dr. Rugang Zhang, Chair of the Department of Experimental Therapeutics.

We are seeking a talented and highly motivated Postdoctoral Fellow to perform hands-on experiments to develop novel mechanism-guided precision therapeutic strategies to address unmet clinical needs in epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) and to understand the role and mechanisms by which tissue aging influences cancer development and response to cancer therapy by studying cellular senescence. The Postdoctoral Fellow will conduct experiments, perform data analysis and prepare manuscripts in addition to attending lab meetings, journal clubs, and research seminars.

The Postdoctoral Fellow's primary research focus is to help the PI merge mechanistic insights with the translational objectives of experimental therapeutics and the accompanying stratifications of genetic biomarkers to address unmet clinical needs in ovarian cancer. The Postdoctoral Fellow will train, learn and study design, data analysis, and manuscript writing.

Individuals with a PhD degree in cancer biology, molecular biology, genetics, immunology, or related fields. Experience with rodent studies is desired but not required for this role. Candidate should have strong organizational skills and the ability to prioritize and manage multiple projects. A proven track record of publications and excellent written and oral communication skills are required.
