Description of Duties

Our laboratory is broadly interested in transcriptional regulation and cell-fate determination in cancer cell biology and treatment.  We are seeking a highly motivated and skilled candidate to work on a novel family of transcriptional and cell-fate regulators in cancer cell biology and treatment response, and stem cell biology.

The candidate will be surrounded by a stimulating research environment, cutting-edge technology, and daily interactions with colleagues in other labs. The training environment will be one where regular discussion of new ideas, and freedom to explore new avenues of investigation, will be encouraged.


The candidate should have background experience in: cell culture methods; molecular biology techniques including western blotting and RT-PCR; laboratory research statistics; willingness to learn new techniques. Also preferred is experience in: cancer hallmark assays such as cell motility, invasiveness, and apoptosis; mouse models; stem cell assays; drug sensitivity assays; and ability to design and perform custom/novel biochemical experiments. The candidate will be expected to participate in preparation of manuscripts and protocols, presenting in weekly lab meetings, and participating in departmental work-in-progress meetings.
