Career Opportunities


Postdoctoral positions available for highly motivated candidates with a strong background in biochemistry, molecular biology, cell biology, and/or mouse genetics to join a research group studying the fundamental mechanisms of cell death and their impact on tumorigenesis and cancer therapy. Projects will include characterization of cell death mechanisms using biochemistry, proteomics or next-generation high-resolution imaging studies, delineation of cell death pathways in vivo using mouse models, high-throughput functional genomics and chemical screens to identify modulators for cancer-specific cell death mechanisms, and development of cell death mechanism–based targeted therapies. Applicants should hold a PhD and/or MD degree and have strong laboratory and analytical skills.
