The Eng Laboratory is seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow for the Genomic Medicine Institute at Cleveland Clinic Lerner Institute of Research. The successful candidate will apply microbiome and immunology skills to characterize the role of local microbe-immune system interactions in breast cancer pathogenesis and progression, which will ultimately inform preventative and therapeutic breast cancer care. As part of these studies, the postdoctoral researcher will be directly responsible for conducting experiments and analyzing data under Dr. Eng’s mentorship.
The Genomic Medicine Institute at the Cleveland Clinic is an interdisciplinary institute and department committed to performing translational and clinical human genetics and genomics investigation. A major focus of the Eng Lab is to utilize multi-disciplinary approaches – classical genetics, genomics, metagenomics, computational/systems biology, immunology, computational biophysics, animal modeling, and molecular biology – illuminate how microbial dysbiosis could contribute to the pathogenesis of a range of cancers and inflammatory conditions.
- PhD in immunology or microbiology
- Expertise in mammalian cell culture, mouse cancer models, and basic immunological and molecular biology techniques required
- Experience in 16S rRNA/ITS sequencing and analysis preferred
- Strong publication record
- Willingness to participate in team science and work closely with computational and interdisciplinary scientists
To be considered for this position, applicants should include a CV, cover letter and contact information for three references to email@example.com.
