        Postdoctoral position is available now at the UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center for an outstanding candidate interested in cancer biology or translational cancer research. Our laboratory is interested in how oncogenes drive cancers and how a deeper understanding of their biology and functions can inform the design of far more effective treatments for patients. Much of our focus has been on the HER2/HER3 and Src family of oncogenes and more recently expanded to many more oncogenes. Our interests lie in basic questions of how specific oncogenes are involved in cancer pathogenesis, the molecular basis underlying cellular addiction to oncogenes, and the reasons underlying the success and failure of targeting approaches for specific oncogenes.  The work builds on a substantial body of data and model systems already established in our lab. Our work encompasses a wide range of in vitro and in vivo experimental techniques including protein biochemistry, gene expression and elimination models, mouse xenograft and genetic models, and interrogation of clinical samples. UCSF is a highly collaborative environment and our laboratory is involved in collaborations with multiple other research programs within the scientific community including programs in systems biology, small molecule discovery, chemistry and chemical biology, and structural biology. We are also actively engaged in translating our laboratory-derived findings into clinical trials conducted at the cancer center. Highly motivated candidates with an MD or PhD and a strong background in molecular and cellular biology please send CV to Mark M. Moasser, MD at
