Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) is one of the world’s premier cancer centers, committed to exceptional patient care, leading-edge research, and superb educational programs. The blending of research with patient care is at the heart of everything we do. The institution is a comprehensive cancer center whose purposes are the treatment and control of cancer, the advancement of biomedical knowledge through laboratory and clinical research, and the training of scientists, physicians and other health care workers.
The Jones laboratory, a multi-R01 funded research program, in conjunction with the Druckenmiller Center for Lung Cancer Research, is searching for an outstanding scientist with a strong interest in translational research focused on the biology of lung cancer metastases. The Jones laboratory focuses on transcriptomic and genomic drivers of lung and esophageal cancer metastases. Other projects in the laboratory include leveraging a large, genomically annotated patient-derived organoid program (lung cancer), A to I RNA editing in cancer, and identification of new genomic predictors of lung cancer recurrence, among others. We are seeking candidates with a strong molecular and tumor biology background with experience in lung cancer tumor biology, xenograft and transgenic animal models of metastases, and the biology of metastases. The candidate will have the opportunity to interact with investigators with expertise in the biology of lung cancer, translational therapeutics, and molecular pathology.
The ideal candidate should have:
PhD or equivalent in biological science
Proficiency with molecular biology, biochemistry, transgenic mice, gene expression arrays, DNA, RNA, and protein assays
At least 3-4 years of experience
Please send CV, bibliography, brief statement of research interests and names of 3 references via email (Including #JonesResearch in the subject line) to:
