NORTHWESTERN UNIVERSITY FEINBERG SCHOOL OF MEDICINE

A well-funded research laboratory at the Ken and Ruth Davee Department of Neurology, Northwestern Brain Tumor Institute, Center for Genetic Medicine, The Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago is seeking postdoctoral researchers to join an outstanding team of scientists dedicated to understanding the biological and molecular mechanisms underlying tumorigenesis and progression and therapy resistance of malignant tumors and cancer stem cells. The ongoing research projects focus on the roles of growth factor receptors and protein kinases and other oncogenic stimuli in regulating cellular signal transduction, which contributes to cancer metabolism and tumorigenesis, invasion and metastasis. Our representative publications are: J. Clin. Invest. 2012, PMID: 22080864; J. Clin. Invest. 2011, PMID: 21393858; Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci., USA, 2012, PMID: 22323579; Oncogene, 2012, PMID: 21996738; Cancer Res. 2009, PMID: 19155310; Cancer Res. 2007, PMID: 17671188; Cancer Res., 2007, PMID: 17483337; Oncogene, 2007, PMID: 17369861; Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci., USA, 2003, PMID12861074.

Understanding the effect of activation of growth factor receptors, protein kinases and oncogenic stimuli on cancer stem cell biology; cell metabolism, cell growth and motility, cell-cell adhesion, cell-extracellular matrix interaction and gene transcription regulation will be of great interest. Cutting-edge technologies such as cancer stem cell biology, proteomics, DNA array, RNA interference, confocal microscopy, and animal imaging are routinely employed in our laboratory.

Applicants must have an excellent first-author publication history and must be highly motivated. A strong background in molecular biology, cell biology, and/or biochemistry is desired. Experience with signal transduction, cell metabolism, stem cells, and transgenic mouse models would be a plus. A competitive salary with an excellent compensation and benefits package will be provided.

Please send curriculum vitae, names of three references, and a statement of research interest to Shi-Yuan Cheng, PhD, Professor of Neurology at eval(unescape('%64%6f%63%75%6d%65%6e%74%2e%77%72%69%74%65%28%27%3c%61%20%68%72%65%66%3d%22%6d%61%69%6c%74%6f%3a%73%68%69%79%75%61%6e%2e%63%68%65%6e%67%40%6e%6f%72%74%68%77%65%73%74%65%72%6e%2e%65%64%75%22%3e%73%68%69%79%75%61%6e%2e%63%68%65%6e%67%40%6e%6f%72%74%68%77%65%73%74%65%72%6e%2e%65%64%75%3c%2f%61%3e%27%29%3b'))
