Major projects in the laboratory focus on the identification of molecules involved in determining cell/tissue radioresponse and the development of target-based therapies. Opportunities are available for using a variety of genetic and molecular biology approaches to delineate the molecules/processes that regulate cellular radiosensitivity. Studies will also involve translating fundamental information relating to molecular radioresponse to strategies aimed at increasing the sensitivity of tumor cells or protecting normal tissue.
Experience in molecular biology/biochemistry is preferred. Experience working with laboratory animals is preferred. Applicant must have received Ph.D. within the past 5 years.
