Post-doctoral fellowship – Cancer Biology/translational biology-
A position is available in the laboratory for an experienced Post-doctoral fellow. Our focus to define the pathogenesis and basic biology of pediatric cancers in order to drive development of novel translational therapeutics. Opportunities include evaluation of tumor heterogeneity and cancer stem cell populations at the single cell level using transgenic and defined orthotopic xenograft models of neuroblastoma and other pediatric cancers, and to as characterize novel interactions between the MYC transcription factors and p53.
PhD required. The optimal candidate will have experience with all aspects of eukaryotic tissue culture and drug response assays including quantification of DNA damage, apoptosis and proliferation. In addition, experience with recombinant protein expression and purification, and interest/background in cryo-electron microscopy as a tool to study structure/function relationships. Our laboratory is affiliated with the Molecular, Cellular and Cancer Biology Program at UMass Medical School with access to all the extensive resources at the school as well as with collaborators throughout the Boston area. We are looking for a team player with excellent communication and collaborative skills.
