Postdoctoral Position in Cancer Drug Persistence & 3D Tumor Microenvironment, (Molecular Pharmacology) | Albert Einstein College of Medicine
Postdoctoral positions are available in the laboratory of Dr. Eugen Dhimolea at the Department of Molecular Pharmacology and the Albert Einstein Cancer Center (an NCI-designated cancer center) of Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Our research activities focus on the cancer cell state transitions that enable persistence to therapy, and on the effect of the 3-dimensional tumor microenvironment on tumor response to pharmacological and immune therapies (for more detail please see our 2021 publications in Cancer Cell and Cancer Research). Talented researchers broadly interested in any of these topics are encouraged to apply.
The ongoing projects offer the opportunity for acquisition of expertise in a wide range of cell culture systems (including novel 3D organoid culture and co-culture models), animal models, molecular biology, target discovery, experimental therapeutics and advanced phenotypic drug screening approaches.
Interested candidates are invited to send CV and names of 2-3 references at email@example.com.
The Albert Einstein College of Medicine is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, age, protected veteran or disabled status, or genetic information. Einstein seeks candidates whose skills, and personal and professional experience, have prepared them to contribute to our commitment to diversity and excellence, and the communities we serve.
The position requires self-motivation, excellent organizational abilities and strong hands-on experimental skills. Prior experience with cell culture techniques, molecular cloning, CRISPR screening, flow cytometry, confocal microscopy and/or animal cancer models are highly desired. Acquisition of familiarity with data analysis software (Excel, GraphPad etc.) and molecular databases is expected. Computational and systems biology knowledge is not essential but would be a plus.
Competitive stipend and a generous benefits package commensurate with experience will be provided according to NIH guideline. The scientific and career mentorship provided during the postdoctoral training period will help the candidate achieve his/her professional goals within academia or in the private sector. Albert Einstein College of Medicine is located in the vibrant and diverse area of the Bronx, combining proximity to the exciting urban life of Manhattan and the quiet living and picturesque outdoor sceneries of the Westchester county.
