Postdoctoral Fellow - Cancer Research Center: Philadelphia, PA, United States
There is an opening for a motivated Postdoctoral Fellow in the research laboratory of Paul Campbell, PhD (https://www.foxchase.org/paul-campbell), in the Cancer Biology Program at Fox Chase Cancer Center (FCCC). The lab focuses on gastrointestinal cancers, particularly pancreatic cancer, and the microenvironment signaling that drives cancer progression. We are interested in basic and translational science approaches that ultimately lead to improved therapeutics. The lab resides in the newly-formed and highly collaborative Marvin and Concetta Greenberg Pancreatic Cancer Institute within FCCC.
The ideal candidate will be engaged in identifying novel mechanisms that promote the development of pancreatic cancer from early lesions through to metastatic disease, using fundamental mechanisms discovered in model organisms as a starting point for discovery. Familiarity with methods for manipulating gene expression and signaling in mammalian cultured cells and mouse models, as well as experience in molecular biology are desired. Please provide a brief summary of future career plans in your application.
• Applicant should have PhD in biomedical sciences or related field.
• This position requires considerable experience in cell and molecular biology techniques.
• Excellent written and oral communication skills in English are required.
Interested candidates should send a curriculum vitae, a brief description of research experience, and contact information for three references to Paul Campbell, email: email@example.com.
