Postdoctoral Fellow: Signaling Pathways in Cancer
A POSTDOC POSITION is available immediately in the Chang laboratory in the Department of Integrative Biology and Pharmacology at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (http://ibp.med.uth.tmc.edu/). Our lab investigates signaling pathways and their role in cancer, focusing on understanding how the signaling network generates complex phenomena such as variation in clinical outcomes. Our lab employs a multidisciplinary approach that spans experimental and genomic methods.
This position will be focused on experimental approaches using cell culture as a model. The ideal candidate will have experience with mammalian cell culture, immunoprecipitation, transfections, and viral transduction, with particular strengths in cloning and RNAi screens.
To join our group, we are looking for highly motivated individuals that have demonstrated scientific productivity, excellent communication skills, and the capacity to conduct independent research. We are interested in applicants from a range of backgrounds and can hold a Ph.D. in Cell Biology, Genetics, Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Cancer Biology, or a related field. Salary will follow NIH and university guidelines.
