Postdoctoral position in breast cancer research

Job Description

Postdoctoral position is available in the Sonenshein laboratory with an active breast cancer program. One project focuses on signaling cascades and the roles of the NF-kappaB and Blimp1 families of transcription factors, and their downstream targets and upstream activators in promoting breast cancer [Nature Cell Biol. 9:470 (2007); J. Clin. Invest. 117:4009 (2007); Mol Cell Biol. 29:3832 (2009)]. Elucidation of the mechanism of action of the novel tumor suppressor lysyl oxidase propeptide is the focus of the second project [Can. Res 69:6685 (2009); Mol. Cell Biol. 31: 2683-95 (2011); Mol. Cell Biol. 31: 3286-3297 (2011)]. Experimental approaches include animal models, molecular analysis of signaling and transcription, and cell culture. Ideal candidates must have a recent Ph.D. degree in biochemistry, molecular, cellular, cancer biology, tissue engineering, or a related discipline. Experience with breast cancer models, stem cells, the mitochondria, and/or miRNAs is preferred. Salary and benefits are commensurate with experience.

Candidates who possess a strong motivation to pursue academic research are encouraged to apply. Interested candidates should send a cover letter summarizing qualifications and experience, curriculum vitae, up to three reprints, and names/addresses/e-mail contacts of three references to the addresses below.
