Postdoctoral positions are currently available in the laboratory of Dr. Min Sup Song at the Department of Molecular and Cellular Oncology, M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. Our overarching goal is to identify the fundamental mechanisms responsible for molecular pathogenesis of cancer progression and metastasis as well as immune and metabolic disorders, and develop new and effective strategies for treatment and prevention for human diseases.
In pursuit of that goal, the lab embraces a multidisciplinary approach to cancer research, with major projects focused on (1) elucidating the functions and regulation of PTEN signaling in cancer (Nature 2008; Cell 2011; Nat Commun 2019), (2) understanding metabolic regulation and its influence on cancer cell biology (Cancer Cell 2017; JCI Insight 2019), and (3) identifying novel molecular mechanisms underlying cancer immunology for the development of new therapies for cancer treatment.
We are seeking highly motivated, team-oriented individuals interested in a multidisciplinary research using molecular and cellular biology and in vivo mouse modeling to investigate the roles of new, important players for immunosurveillance uncovered by metabolomics, phospho-proteomics, ubiquitylomics and transcriptome analysis in GEM models of cancers including prostate, breast and skin cancers.
The ideal candidate will have a solid background in cancer immunology with strong first-author publications. Fluency in English (written and oral) is required. Fresh PhDs are encouraged to apply.
Please send a CV, a letter of interest, and the names and contact information of three references to: Dr. Min Sup Song (firstname.lastname@example.org).
