The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center
Location: Houston, TX
A well-funded, dynamic and question-driven young lab at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center seeks to appoint one or more highly motivated postdoctoral fellows with a strong interest in cancer biology, tumor immunology and cancer immunotherapy and a desire to work with projects related to lung cancers. The successful appointee(s) will be working under the supervision of Tina Cascone, M.D., Ph.D., Assistant Professor, physician scientist in the Department of Thoracic/Head and Neck Medical Oncology.
Qualified postdoc candidates should have a doctoral degree, with strong background in one or more of the following areas: biochemistry, molecular biology, cell biology, cancer biology, tumor immunology and cancer immunotherapy, with an emphasis on mechanisms of action of immune checkpoint inhibitors and T cell-based therapies (required). Prior experience in understanding, generating, and handling murine models of cancer, as well as ability to analyze data derived from in vivo studies using syngeneic mouse models of cancer is desired. Expertise in any of the following fields would be considered advantageous, but is not essential: oncogenic signaling pathways, biomarkers of response and resistance to cancer therapies (targeted therapies, antiangiogenic therapies and immune-based therapies), cancer metabolism, and immuno-genomics. The postdoctoral fellow is expected to be a self-starter, highly motivated, dedicated, have critical thinking abilities, excellent technical skills, strong work ethic, and excellent organizational and communication skills.
MD Anderson is ranked one of the top two hospitals in cancer care nationwide for 25 years by U。S。 News & World Report。 The cancer center ranks high in the number of National Cancer Institute grants and invests millions in research every year; it offers active graduate and post-doctoral training programs, and the unmatched scientific environment of the Texas Medical Center, the world's largest biomedical center。
