Postdoctoral Position - Department of Nutrition

Postdoctoral Position in Cancer Cell Biology

A postdoctoral position is available at the School of Medicine of Case Western Reserve University (Cleveland, OH) to study the molecular mechanisms by which specific oncogene products drive tumorigenesis and invasiveness in colorectal cancer.  Primary goal of the project is to develop novel, target-specific inhibitors for studies in cell and animal models of the disease.

The postdoc will work independently on research projects under the supervision of the principal investigator. The candidate must have strong foundation and experience in all aspects of cell signaling and cancer cell biology.  The candidate will be expected to contribute to the preparation of manuscripts and reports, and to regularly present their findings at various internal and external meetings.  Candidates must have an M.D and/or Ph.D. with relevant experience, a strong record of productivity with evidence of first-author publications, and excellent communication skills. This is an outstanding opportunity for highly motivated individuals with strong bench and organizational skills.
