Two postdoctoral positions are currently available in the laboratory of Dr. Min Sup Song at Department of Molecular and Cellular Oncology, MD Anderson Cancer Center (http://faculty.mdanderson.org/MinSup_Song/Default.asp). Our laboratory focuses on understanding the fundamental mechanisms responsible for molecular pathogenesis regulating cancer, aging, and metabolic disorders. We recently identified novel regulatory mechanisms of PTEN/PI3K/mTOR and its intersection pathways by using new mouse models as well as molecular and cell biology approaches.
The selected postdoctoral fellows will be engaged to (1) develop chemical screening strategy to identify specific inhibitors to our candidate proteins and undertake their therapeutic potential to obesity, diabetes, and cancer in our preclinical models and clinic and (2) study signal transduction pathways essential for cellular metabolism, oxidative stress, and tumorigenesis through employing in vitro approaches as well as in vivo mouse modeling.
Candidates must have:
- Highly motivated, dedicated and ambitious scientific interest
- Solid experience in molecular biology, biochemistry, cell biology, and mouse models.
- Less than 1-2 years of the time they obtained their Ph.D.
For more information, please contact Dr. Min Sup Song (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Please include a CV, a statement of research accomplishment and interest in this position, and the names and contact information of 3 references.
The mission of The University of Texas MDAnderson Cancer Center is to eliminate cancer in Texas, the nation, and the world through outstanding programs that integrate patient care, research and prevention, and through education for undergraduate and graduate students, trainees, professionals, employees and the public….
