A postdoctoral fellow position is immediately available in the laboratory of Dr. Naoto T. Ueno, in the Department of Breast Medical Oncology of the UT MD Anderson Cancer Center. We are seeking highly self-motivated candidates with strong research capabilities to investigate the mechanism of how tumor microenvironment regulates the efficacy of targeted therapy and to develop novel combination approaches through hypothesis driven research to improve the treatment for patients with inflammatory breast cancer (IBC) and triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC).
The successful candidate must be able to design and conduct experiments, interpret results, trouble shooting, and further generate hypothesis driven experiments. The candidates should have strong background in one or more of the following areas: molecular/cellular biology, translational research, immunology, cancer biology, signaling pathways, and mouse modeling. The candidate will perform a wide variety of in vitro experiments including but not limited to cell culture, drug treatment, IHC staining, flow cytometry, Western blot, ELISA, as well as in vivo experiments with mouse models. Candidates will write abstracts, manuscripts, and help with grant application. Excellent written, verbal communication, and organization skills are required.
Requirements: Recent Ph.D. in cancer biology, molecular/cellular biology, immunology, or related fields.
Postdocs are paid competitively based on NIH pay scale for a fresh Ph.D. candidate with increased pay based on additional postdoctoral experiences. Please send a cover letter, CV, statement of research interest, and contact information of three references to Dr. Naoto T.
