The Department of Clinical Cancer Prevention has an immediate opening for a Postdoctoral position. Dr. Powel Brown is recruiting PhD or MD/PhD trained scientists to conduct breast cancer research to identify critical signal transduction molecules that can be targeted for the treatment or prevention of breast cancer. The candidate should have a PhD or MD/PhD degree and be familiar with basic techniques in molecular biology, cell biology, genetics, genomic profiling and computational biology. The postdoctoral fellow will work on a recently funded project to identify molecular targets for the treatment and prevention of breast cancer using genomic and proteomic techniques. Fellows will be trained in state-of-the-art signal transduction and genomic screening techniques and bioinformatic analysis, and will receive additional training in breast cancer biology, grant writing, bioinformatics, and systems biology. Only candidates who have published work from their predoctoral studies and who are within 12 months of receiving their PhD will be considered. Scientists who have already received significant postdoctoral training will not be considered. The postdoctoral fellow will be expected to conduct independent research, to present their results at departmental and national meetings, and to prepare manuscripts for publication.
