zebrafish, tumor microenvironment
A fully funded postdoctoral position is available at the National Cancer Institute on the NIH main campus in Bethesda, MD. Specifically, this opening is for an ongoing project examining the role of tissue architecture and mechanotransduction in the establishment of metastatic lesions, using zebrafish as a model system. The NIH will provide funding and benefits, though extramural fellowship applications will be strongly encouraged and supported.
Applicants should possess a Ph.D. in biology or a related field and have a strong background in molecular biology and/or cell biology and a minimum of one first-authorship manuscript in a peer-reviewed journal. Applicants should have no more than one year of postdoctoral training.
It is desirable that candidates are proficient in cell culture, imaging, standard molecular biology protocols and handling of zebrafish. Previous experience with genetic analysis/engineering in zebrafish organism, in vivo imaging and image analysis are preferred. The NIH will provide funding and benefits. We value the ability to work in a team. Letters of reference should highlight independence in problem solving and data analysis. Experience with genetic analysis/engineering in a model organism, in vivo imaging and image analysis are preferred.
Interested individuals should e-mail a cover letter, curriculum vitae, bibliography, and contact information for 3 references to:
