Science jobs from The Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen):
Job Summary The Pancreatic Cancer Research Program at TGen under the direction of Daniel D. Von Hoff, MD and Haiyong Han, PhD, currently has a postdoctoral fellowship position available. Our program aims to develop novel targeted therapies for patients with advanced pancreatic cancer. We employ genomic and biochemical approaches such as whole genome sequencing and tissue array immunohistochemistry to identify alterations responsible for driving the progression and/or chemoresistance of pancreatic cancer. Promising alterations are further validated for drug targeting and candidate therapies are then developed and tested in cell line and animal models. By closely working with clinicians at TGen's Clinical Services, we seek to rapidly translate laboratory findings to the clinic. Promising therapies are promptly evaluated in pilot clinical trials.
Job Qualification The successful candidate should be a recent PhD graduate with a strong background in molecular biology and/or biochemistry with a focus on cancer. The ideal candidate will exhibit flexibility independence and creativity with a record of scientific productivity. Previous experience in cancer animal models is preferred.
To Apply To apply please submit CV, a short summary of research interest and experience, and contact information for three references through TGen's career website (Job # IRC9730).
If you are interested in applying for this position or learning more about TGen or benefits of working here, please go to http://careers.tgen.org.
