Postdoctoral Fellow Opportunity – Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory – Long Island, NY
The Janowitz Laboratory at CSHL is seeking a highly motivated, creative, and interactive post-doctoral fellow with strong skills in molecular biology and analytical methods, as well as an interest in cancer biology, endocrinology, and immunology. We are in the process of building a team to research the host’s response to cancer, with the vision to deliver new treatment strategies and to discover fundamental biological interactions between organ systems. We are currently investigating the effect of systemic metabolic alterations in cancer on the immune system.
We are looking for candidates interested in developing their own research question in alignment with the interests and skills present in the laboratory and institution.
The selected candidate will be provided access to state-of-the-art laboratory space and the opportunity to discuss science in a relaxed but intensely focused atmosphere. Opportunities to learn about advanced microscopy, genetic engineering and new sequencing techniques for detecting somatic mutations and transcriptional signatures, and data visualization will be provided. The option to learn about translational research will be provided.
Education: The applicant is expected to be in the process of completing or have recently completed a PhD degree in cancer biology/biochemistry/biophysics/immunology or related areas.
Experience/Skills: The candidate must have a deep understanding of the requirement to test hypotheses experimentally to advance scientific knowledge. The candidate should have a strong background in molecular biology and an interest in cancer biology and physiology. Sound knowledge of metabolism, essential biochemistry, endocrinology, and immunology is desirable. Experience in R programming or biostatistics is beneficial, but not essential. We use animal models for research and, therefore, experience and willingness in handling animals is important.
Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory offers a highly collaborative social and scientific environment as well as a competitive salary and benefits in a beautiful location about one hour from New York City.
If you are interested in joining the lab, please send a CV and a statement of your research accomplishments and interests along with the names of three references to: firstname.lastname@example.org as well as submitting an online application here: http://cshl.peopleadmin.com/postings/14320
