New postdoctoral positions are open in a cancer research laboratory located within The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. The lab currently studies ferroptosis, disulfidptosis, and cellular metabolism in cancer [see our publications Nature 2021; Nature Reviews Cancer 2022; Nature Cell Biology 2016, 2018, 2020 (X 2), 2023;  Nature Communications 2017, 2021, 2022, 2023; Cell Research 2020; PNAS, 2017, 2022; see link below for complete publication list: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/myncbi/browse/collection/47340098/?sort=date&direction=descending]. The lab is well funded to support various projects related to the research topics described above.

The putative postdoc researcher will have the opportunities to work on various projects studying the roles of ferroptosis (a form of regulated cell death induced by lipid peroxidation) and disulfidptosis (a form of regulated cell death induced by disulfide stress) in tumor suppression and cancer therapy (please visit our lab webpage for detailed introduction on research projects https://www.mdanderson.org/research/departments-labs-institutes/labs/gan-laboratory.html). Qualified candidates should have strong background in one or more of the following areas: molecular/cell biology, biochemistry, metabolism, cancer genetics, or using Mass Spectrometry-related technologies to study metabolism. We prefer candidates who are about to graduate with PhD or MD/PhD degree, or have graduated within the last 12 months. A track record of excellent first author publication during PhD training is essential. The pay scale follows NIH guidelines ($56,484 for fresh PhD with adjustment for more senior candidates).

MD Anderson is the number one cancer center in cancer care in the United States by the U.S. News and World Report’s “America’s Best Hospitals” survey. It ranks 1st in the number of awarded grants from National Cancer Institute. It offers active graduate and postdoctoral training programs and the unmatched scientific environment of the Texas Medical Center, the world’s largest biomedical center. MD Anderson is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer. Houston is the 4th largest city in the United States with relatively low living cost and no state or city income tax.

The interested candidates should send a CV to bgan@mdanderson.org.
