We are seeking a motivated and hardworking postdoctoral candidate with a background in molecular biology or immunology to take a leadership role on projects focused on mechanisms of hormone therapy resistance in prostate cancer and the connection of these mechanisms to immunotherapy. The postdoctoral associate will be co-mentored by Dr. Jason Somarelli, a PhD basic scientist and expert in cancer biology, Dr. Andrew Armstrong MD, Professor of Medicine, a medical oncologist and Director of Research of the DCI Center for Prostate and Urologic Cancers, and Dr. Brent Hanks MD PhD, Assistant Professor of Medicine and an expert in immuno-oncology.
The postdoctoral associate will be expected to carry out the research related to our funded projects, including collaborating with other laboratory researchers, clinical research team members, bioinformaticians and biostatisticians. The candidate will need to independently develop experiments, analyze and interpret data, and document all research activities and data for subsequent use in publications and grant applications. The candidate will also be expected to write and apply for post-doctoral fellowships.
This position will be supported for two years with the potential for extension based on funding. Recent Ph.D. graduates are preferred.
