Job Description

Post-doctoral Positions: University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center
Research Field: liver cancer
Disciplines: diagnosis, treatment and prevention

Postdoctoral positions are immediately available. The incidence of liver cancer is very high worldwide and is on the rise in the United States. The overall survival rate of liver cancer is poor because most patients are diagnosed late and limited therapeutic options are available. To search for new therapeutics and diagnostics tools, we use a combination of proteomic and genomic technologies. Our group has embarked on a major effort to integrate molecular datasets for the identification of novel targets for therapy and diagnosis and validate these targets in preclinical models of liver cancer and in patient cohorts.

We are searching for a highly-motivated post-doctoral fellow to work on a project related to liver cancer treatment, diagnosis or prevention. This individual should have some experience in tissue culture, proteomics and protein assays and/or microRNAs and PCR. Attendance to weekly laboratory meetings to report on progress of ongoing projects in the laboratory is expected. The ideal candidate will possess the following qualifications: Ph.D. degree in the field of Virology, Molecular and Cellular Biology, Biochemistry or a closely related field. Recent graduates are encouraged to apply.

Salary will be determined by the candidate’s experience and qualifications. Please send CV and information for three references to:
