Post-doctoral Fellowships in Cancer Biology at Mayo Clinic Florida
Post-doctoral fellowships are available immediately in the laboratories of Drs. Alan P. Fields and Verline Justilien to conduct NCI-funded research on protein kinase function in lung and ovarian cancer at the Mayo Clinic Comprehensive Cancer Center in Jacksonville, Florida. Our laboratory is defining critical oncogenic protein kinase signaling pathways in human lung and ovarian cancer using a combination of clinical tumor specimens, genomic/bioinformatics analysis, cell-based studies, targeted therapeutics and novel genetically-engineered mouse models. Specific areas of interest include the identification and dissection of key signaling mechanisms that drive lung and ovarian tumor initiation, maintenance and progression, and development of directed therapeutic approaches to cancer treatment. Recent relevant publications include: Justilien et al, Cancer Cell 25:139, 2014; Ali et al, Cancer Cell 29:367, 2016; Wang et al, Oncogene 36: 534, 2017, 2016 and Justilien et al, Cancer Cell 31: 256, 2017.
Candidates with a recent Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. and a strong research background in cell signaling, cancer biology, and/or molecular cell biology are encouraged to apply. Experience in molecular biology, genomics/bioinformatics and/or cancer stem cell biology is desirable. Mayo Clinic offers a competitive stipend and a generous fringe benefit package. Interested candidates should send their curriculum vitae, a statement of research experience and interests, and contact information for three references to: Alan P. Fields, PhD, Professor, Department of Cancer Biology, Mayo Clinic Comprehensive Cancer Center. E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. Mayo Clinic is an affirmative action/equal opportunity educator and employer.
