Postdoctoral Fellow

Postdoctoral Fellow

University of California (UCSF)

San Francisco, CA, United States

Postdoctoral Research Associate in a variety of translational research projects studying glioblastoma biology

The Aghi lab is looking for postdoctoral fellows to assist us in conducting studies that will be part of two recently funded R01 grants that aim to define mechanisms of glioblastoma invasion and angiogenesis, mechanisms of glioblastoma cell survival, and mechanisms of glioblastoma resistance to anti-angiogenic therapy. Details about work in our lab can be found at

Requirements are: (1) recently earned MD and/or PhD degree(s) in areas of the biological sciences relevant to this research (such as biochemistry, bioinformatics, molecular biology, immunology); (2) a strong background in cell biology, molecular biology, immunohistochemistry, flow cytometry, stem cell biology, and rodent work,; (3) multiple first author publications written by the applicant published in reputable peer reviewed journals; (4) the ability to write competitive scientific grants that will procure funding for the applicant during the postdoctoral fellowship and allow the candidate to eventually transition to independent positions; (5) the ability to work long and flexible hours in order to accomplish these goals; (6) fluency in English and the interpersonal skills required to teach junior members of the laboratory; and (7) applicants should be US citizens, permanent residents, or most currently hold a valid US work visa. Experience in cancer bioinformatics, CRISPR library screens, or small molecule screens is strongly desired given the nature of the funded projects you will participate in.

UCSF standards (higher than NIH standards) will be used in setting the pay scale.

Only qualified candidates will be contacted to schedule interviews, which must be in person in San Francisco before the position can be offered. The start date is negotiable. The appointment is subject to an annual renewal to ensure that there is mutual satisfaction.

To apply, please email cover letter, CV with list of publications and prior research experience, and names of 2 references to
