Post Doctoral Position: Prostate Cancer, Genetics, Molecular and Cellular Biology
A Postdoctoral position is available at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and the James Buchanan Brady Urological Institute within in the laboratories of Dr. Shawn E. Lupold, Ph.D. and William Isaacs, Ph.D.
Area of Research
This fully funded postdoctoral fellowship position will study the role of commonly mutated genes identified in patients with lethal prostate cancer. Candidates will be working in a highly collaborative academic research community with a strong history of training, mentorship, and collaborative translational prostate cancer research. This project is funded for one year.
The selected individual will manage a complex molecular prostate cancer research project, which will include the planning, design, execution, data recording, and analysis of molecular cancer. Experimental procedures include cell culture, plasmid and siRNA transfection, cell viability, apoptosis, migration, and invasion assays, qRT-PCR, and western blotting. The individual will coordinate, organize, and document research findings. Research progress and results will be presented at laboratory and institutional meetings, as well as at national and/or international scientific meetings. The individual will work with the team to prepare, write, and submit scientific manuscripts. The Lupold and Isaacs laboratories are dedicated to fellow training, growth and success within a friendly team science cancer research environment.
Applicants should have a Ph.D. and/or M.D. with 0-5 years of postdoctoral research experience. Experience in translational cancer research is required. Applicants with experience in cancer molecular biology and high throughput screening will receive top priority. Applicants must be willing to work individually and within a team science environment.
Candidates should e-mail C.V. and statement of interest to Dr. Shawn Lupold at firstname.lastname@example.org.
