Three-year Postdoctoral Research Fellowship position available for highly motivated candidates with a background in molecular/cellular biology and transgenic mouse models. Projects will focus on the epithelial plasticity (EP) programs such as the epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) and the role of EP in tumorigenesis, metastasis and treatment resistance. We study these areas primarily by using a novel suite of transgenic oncogene mouse models and non-invasive rodent imaging as well as other more traditional biochemical, genetic, molecular and cell biological approaches.
