Postdoctoral Fellow in Cancer Biology for Single Cell Analysis of Tumor Heterogeneity at Stanford University
Postdoctoral Fellowship is available in a systems biology laboratory of Dr. Sylvia Plevritis in the James H. Clark Center at Stanford University to study tumor heterogeneity using single cell analysis. Projects aim to reveal molecular mechanisms of drug resistance based on intercellular and intracellular regulation. Experimental model systems will include cancer cell lines and human tumor and normal tissues and may involve mouse models. Projects will primarily rely on manipulation of gene expression in cell culture and possibly in-vivo assays (xenograft, orthotopic, and transgenic models). Experience with mammalian cell culture models, enzymatic dissociation of human tissues, fluorescent-activated cell sorting (FACS), fluorescence microscopy and use of lentiviral delivery systems is required. Experience with genomic and CyTOF analysis is desirable. Successful candidate will interact closely with computational biologists and be responsible for designing and executing experiments that will, in part, validate computationally-derived regulatory interactions of the tumor microenvironment. The ideal candidate should have a PhD in the field of molecular and cellular cancer biology, relevant publications, and high fluency in English.
Interested candidates should email CV, brief research statement and contact information for at least 3 references (address, email, phone number) to: Ramzi Totah, firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line: “Cancer Biology Postdoc on Tumor Heterogeneity.”
Stanford University is an equal opportunity employer….
