Postdoctoral Positions on Regulation of Tumor Metastasis
Highly motivated scientists are invited to apply for postdoctoral positions in the laboratory of Professor Marsha Rosner in the Ben May Department for Cancer Research. Our goal is to understand how to reprogram tumor cells to suppress metastasis and enhance therapeutic efficacy. This work will focus on key aspects of metastatic disease including cancer stem cells, metabolic adaptation, oxidative stress, tumor cell invasion, DNA damage and repair, and the immune system as well as therapy involving targeted drugs, radiation or chemotherapy (see Lee et al., Nature, 2019). Our group is interdisciplinary and employs a variety of tools including gene manipulation, signal transduction, single cell sequencing, ChIP, bioinformatic analysis, network modeling, cell culture and mouse tumor models. See Rosnerlab.com for more information.
We are part of the Biological Sciences Division (https://biologicalsciences.uchicago.edu/), Ben May Department for Cancer Research (https://benmay.uchicago.edu/) and the UC Comprehensive Cancer Center (https://cancer.uchicago.edu/), providing postdoctoral researchers with access to talented collaborators and world class core research facilities (https://osrf.uchicago.edu/).
Applicants should have a recent Ph.D. in the biological and/or physical sciences, and expertise in molecular biology, biochemistry and cell culture. Excellent writing skills and proficiency in scientific communication are required. Experience with any of the following areas is preferred: signal transduction, bioinformatics and statistical analysis, oxidative stress, metabolism, immunology and mouse models of cancer.
Interested candidates should submit a curriculum vitae, a statement of research interests and contact information for at least three references to Marsha Rosner at firstname.lastname@example.org. Compensation in the Biological Sciences Division follows the NIH NRSA Stipend scale. Additional information on benefits and being a postdoc in the University of Chicago Biological Sciences Division can be found at bsdpostdoc.uchicago.edu.
