Postdoctoral position available at the University of California San Francisco Comprehensive Cancer Center for an outstanding candidate interested in contributing to personalized approaches for the deadliest human cancers. We focus on the development of targeted approaches to the diagnosis and treatment of pancreatic and lung cancers.
Join us in the unique Mission Bay environment of the UCSF campus.
We use cell lines, mouse models and clinical samples, coupled with cutting edge bioinformatic imaging and other modeling approaches to examine the necessary pathways behind the deadliest RAS-driven human cancers. Beyond Ras genes, we have focused efforts in the micro-environment of pancreatic cancer and in finding rare, druggable driver genes in lung adeno carcinoma. We are also working to comprehensively model with high fidelity, key aspects of complex human cancer genomes in syngeneic murine hosts using a combination of germline genetics and somatic allele delivery by CRISPR and cDNA systems.
These are difficult problems with large potential impact. Willingness to take risk, fail and recover is required in our group.
Applicants should have:
MD or PhD degree granted within the last 18 months.
Experience with mouse models and/or informatics is also required.
Qualified candidates are invited to submit an application and cover letter in one .pdf file. A curriculum vitae and description of present and future scientific endeavors would be helpful.
UCSF is a highly collaborative environment and our laboratory is closely linked with multiple basic and clinical programs within the cancer center as well as collaborators in the pharmaceutical industry, enabling us to test our translational hypotheses in clinical studies at the cancer center.
Highly motivated candidates should email a single PDF with a cover letter and CV to the email relay at the top. Electronic submissions in PDF format is preferred, and should include the words “PostDoc2016” in the email subject line to firstname.lastname@example.org
UCSF is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer and committed to a diverse workforce.
