A postdoctoral research fellow opportunity is available in the Alejandro Gutierrez lab at Boston Children’s Hospital.
We seek a highly motivated and productive individual to join our efforts investigating molecular oncogenesis and novel therapeutic targets for treatment-resistant human cancers. Our approach combines genome-wide genetic or small molecule screens with functional genetics, biochemistry and experimental therapeutics. Our models including human cancer samples, including cell lines, clinical specimens and patient-derived xenografts, with genetically engineered zebrafish and mouse models of human cancer. Our lab consists of a diverse group of creative scientists who are committed to improving our understanding of the molecular aberrations underlying oncogenic transformation and chemotherapy resistance. Relevant recent manuscripts from the lab include the following:
A doctoral degree (PhD, MD/PhD, or MD) is required, together with a strong track record of productivity, as evidenced by first-author publications in peer-reviewed scientific journals. The ideal candidate will have a track record of applying innovative experimental strategies to tackle important biologic problems, together with the communication and interpersonal skills required to make a positive contribution to a thriving intellectual environment. Full-time position with competitive salary/benefits commensurate with experience.
To apply, please email: Alejandro.Gutierrez@childrens.harvard.edu a 2-3 page Research Statement outlining what you see as an important problem in the field, and describing an experimental approach you would use to address it. Please send this together with your CV and the contact information of three individuals who can provide recommendations. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis.
