We are looking for an enthusiastic scientist to immediately fill a postdoctoral position in the lab of Dr. Ann Klopp at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. The position will focus on the impact of adipose tissues in gynecologic cancers. Successful candidates will demonstrate excellent communication and organizational skills and a strong desire to work independently.
Using clinical adipose samples and three dimensional tissue culture the successful applicant will investigate the role of adipose tissues on endometrial and ovarian cancer metastasis. Mouse models of diet induced obesity will be used to investigate the impact of obesity. This multidisciplinary lab will afford highly motivated candidates significant creative and intellectual freedom should they desire it.
We are seeking individuals with an expected or recently earned Ph.D. who have experience and knowledge in molecular biology, cell biology and/or mouse models of disease. There will be ample opportunities to translate the basic research progress in the lab to the vast clinical infrastructure at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. All levels of experience will be considered, and pay will be commensurate with experience. Knowledge and expertise with mouse colony management is highly desirable but not required. This project is already at an advanced stage and is thus an excellent opportunity for a postdoctoral candidate looking for advanced fellowship and fast tracking to a faculty position.
How to apply
Interested candidates should send a cover letter describing their interest in our research and a CV to Dr. Ann Klopp at firstname.lastname@example.org.
