We are seeking a postdoctoral research associate in studying cancer signaling and cancer biology who will be responsible for using both biochemical and molecular tool sets to answer biological questions in cancer. The qualified candidate will integrate information from a combination of sources, including in vitro biochemical assays and in vivo genetic screens to generate and validate hypotheses of therapeutic relevance to cancer at the bench. The lab currently focuses on PI3K/mTOR/Akt and cGAS/STING signaling pathways to decipher new function and new regulatory mechanisms that can be translated into cancer therapy.
Education and Experience:
Ph.D. in cell biology, biochemistry, biological or biomedical related sciences
