The Pankaj Singh lab at the newly established Department of Oncology Science and the NCI-designated OU Health Stephenson Cancer Center is recruiting an enthusiastic and motivated postdoctoral researcher to join on an NIH/NCI-funded study on pancreatic cancer metabolism. The research project involves investigating signal transduction and metabolic alterations in pancreatic cancer cells, tumor-stromal crosstalk, therapy resistance, metastasis, and immunometabolism, using cutting-edge technologies and multi-omics platforms. A successful postdoctoral candidate should have a Ph.D. in the relevant field with a strong theoretical background in basic biochemistry and molecular biology and/or human physiology. The candidate should be well versed with basic molecular biology and cell culture techniques. The project also involves utilizing mice models of pancreatic cancer (PDX models and genetically engineered models). Some LC-MS/MS, bioinformatics, and small-animal research experience is preferred but not required. More details about our work can be found in some of our recent publications (Cancer Cell 2017 32(1):71-87; JEM2020 217 (7):e20190745; PNAS 109(34):13787-92; Immunity 2019 50(3):576-590; Nature Medicine. 2019 25(4):628-640; Gastroenterology 2021 Jul 8:S0016-5085(21)03159-0).
Our state-of-the art research program utilizes multi-omics approaches, including sc-RNA-seq, bulk RNAseq, epigenomics, metabolomics, proteomics, organoid cultures, and genetically engineered mouse models and organoid models. Our program is well-funded by NCI, with multiple R01 grants and program/center projects focused on pancreatic cancer.
The Singh lab is a friendly, welcoming, and inclusive place with great excitement for cancer research. We plan to complete the recruitment process soon.
Interested candidates should submit their CV directly to Ms. Rebecca New at Onc-Sci@ouhsc.edu.
