Barrow Neurological Institute
The Ivy Brain Tumor Center is a non-conventional, non-profit program offering state-of-the-art clinical trials for patients with the most aggressive form of brain cancer. It is home to the largest collection of Phase 0 trials for brain tumors in the world. Our multidisciplinary team of brain tumor specialists and scientists are accelerating drug discovery and precision medicine in neuro-oncology to identify the most promising first-in-class therapies for brain tumor patients.
The Ivy Brain Tumor Center is currently recruiting a highly motivated and driven Postdoctoral Fellow I, preferably a recent graduate (Ph.D., M.D., DVM) to join our in vivo/in vitro modeling team focusing on cutting edge Phase 0/II clinical trials for glioblastoma at the Barrow Neurological Institute. Prior experience in conducting drug treatment studies and knowledge of signal transduction pathways is preferred.
