Postdoctoral Fellow - skin cancer, GPCR, signaling
skin, cancer, GPCR, signaling, keratinocytes, stem cells
A POSTDOCTORAL research position is available in the group of Dr. Ramiro Iglesias-Bartolome at the National Cancer Institute, National Institutes of Health (NCI-NIH, Bethesda, Maryland, USA) at the Laboratory of Cellular and Molecular Biology (LCMB). The position is available starting October 2019. Our laboratory research focuses on elucidating the signaling mechanisms that control and drive tissue-specific stem cell self-renewal and differentiation and their connections to tumor initiation and growth. Qualified applicants will study signaling events in epithelial stem cell fate decisions and cancer by using mouse and cell line models and single cell RNA-seq. The candidate will have access to state-of-the-art genomic, proteomic and imaging technologies.
Postdoctoral applicants should have a doctoral degree within the last 2 years with a solid background in cell biology, molecular biology, or similar field. Previous experience in mouse models, skin biology, cell signaling, cancer biology or bioinformatics is desirable. Candidates should be comfortable using mice as a model system.
Submit a cover letter with a research statement indicating areas of expertise, CV, and contact information for 2 or more references. Submit by email to Dr. Ramiro Iglesias-Bartolome (firstname.lastname@example.org). In the email subject please indicate “Postdoc application” to ensure proper attention.
