Job DescriptionWe are seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to join the laboratory of Dr. Sun (https://dentistry.vcu.edu/contacts/profile/yue-sun/) at Philips Institute for Oral Health Research & Massey Cancer Center, Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU). The research in our laboratory focuses on the abnormal signaling events and micro-environmental regulation in cancer progression. Currently, we are particularly interested in defining novel regulators that control Head and Neck cancer tumor initiation, metastasis, and response to immunotherapies. This research will lead to the development of novel anti-cancer therapies. The work will involve cell culture, biochemical characterization, functional cell biology assay, and transgenic mice models.
Our team is integrated into the Cancer Cell Signaling Program at our NCI-designated Cancer Center. This opportunity is ideal for postdocs who are interested in basic cancer research.
Competitive salary with excellent benefits and travel opportunities will be provided commensurate with experience.
The funding resource to support this position is provided by the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR) and the American Cancer Society (ACS).
VCU is located at Richmond, Virginia, in the east coast of United States and is close to Washington, D.C.
To apply, please email a cover letter, CV, and the names and contact information (including phone numbers) of three references to firstname.lastname@example.org.
