Post-doctoral position available for highly motivated candidates with a background in molecular/cellular biology to join the Chan laboratory, a cancer genetics and genomics laboratory studying tumor suppressor genes and immunogenomics in a variety of solid tumors. Projects will involve using genetic and functional analyses to characterize the genomics and function of tumor suppressor genes as well as state-of-the-art genomic approaches to understand response and resistance to immunotherapies in renal cell carcinoma. Potential projects for fellows in the lab include but are not limited to: investigating tumor suppressor genes central to renal cell carcinoma oncogenesis, mouse models and metabolic profiling of rare RCC subtypes, and immunologic interrogations of checkpoint blockade and combination therapy in RCC cell lines. Approaches utilized will include genome-wide microarray analysis, molecular cloning, biochemistry, mouse models, next-generation genomic sequencing, etc.
Applicants should hold a PhD and/or MD degree and have strong laboratory and analytical skills. Significant experience in molecular biology, immunology and cancer biology is required. Good communication and organizational skills are a must. Some bioinformatic knowledge is helpful.
Full applications including curriculum vitae, a summary of current and future research interests and expected availability date, a description of past research experience and accomplishments, selected reprints of publications and three references.
