A POSTDOCTORAL FELLOW position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Jane Zhu in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester MN (http://www.janezhulab.org/). Our interest is to understand the genetic and cellular basis as well as molecular mechanism of neuroblastoma initiation, maintenance and metastasis using zebrafish as a model system (Cancer Cell. 2017 Sep 11;32(3):310-323.e5). We will take the advantage of zebrafish model of neuroblastoma to understand the pathogenic role of new genetic findings emerging from integrative genomic studies of human neuroblastomas, to uncover the key signaling pathways that are altered in high-risk tumors, and to identify novel molecular targets for effective targeted therapies.
We are looking for creative and motivated applicants. Experiences with cell and molecular biology as well as animal model are essential. Please send a cover letter, CV and a list of three individuals as references to firstname.lastname@example.org
