- Position/Program Description:
Postdoctoral positions are available immediately to work in the areas of DNA damage repair and cancer biology. The lab focuses on the roles of tumor suppressor genes and oncogenes in DNA repair, cell cycle regulation, and other signaling pathways involved in tumor initiation, progression and metastasis. The approaches we take range from mammalian cell culture, molecular biology, biochemistry to mouse genetics. We also conduct large-scale proteomic studies and whole genome CRISPR sgRNA in vitro and in vivo screens to explore various cancer related signal transduction pathways.
We seek applicants who are self-motivated and career-oriented to join an exciting and highly interactive research team. We have track record of training the best and the brightest postdoctoral fellows who have become exceptional independent group leaders in United States and other countries. The research environment at MD Anderson is outstanding and nurturing, especially for applicants who are interested in cancer biology and translational collaborations. MD Anderson Cancer Center is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer. Highly motivated and energetic applicants are encouraged to contact me by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or letter to:
