The Frazer lab at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center (OUHSC) in Oklahoma City seeks a post-doctoral fellow. We study lymphocyte leukemias & lymphomas using zebrafish models and in vitro tissue culture, with emphasis on the genetic events underlying oncogenesis and therapy resistance. My lab belongs to the Depts. of Pediatrics, Cell Biology, and Microbiology & Immunology, and the OUHSC Stephenson Cancer Center.
A fun, motivated, independent, and creative person is a perfect fit for our group of 8. I am committed to mentoring junior scientists to achieve their career goals. Projects developed as a post-doc can be taken upon leaving the lab. Applicants need a PhD and/or MD, and experience with zebrafish, genetics, and/or molecular biology are plusses.
OUHSC has a large campus with multiple schools (graduate, medical, dental, allied-health, nursing, etc.). Our lab is well-equipped, with strong core facilities available. We have an aquatic facility manager who coordinates fish care, breeding, IVF, etc., so you can focus on experiments.
Oklahoma City is the 27th largest US city (~1.3 million people) and Oklahoma’s capital. It has diverse cultures & ethnicities, as does our lab. OKC’s cost of living is very low, so post-docs have a high standard of living. Please contact me by email & attach your CV if you’d like to discuss the position further.
