Multiple postdoctoral positions in cellular metabolism of cancer are available in the laboratory of Dr. Katherine Aird at the University of Pittsburgh and UPMC Hillman Cancer Center. These funded projects will focus on how metabolites affect the epigenome, DNA damage response, and/or microenvironment during tumorigenesis and cancer progression. This research will integrate cellular and molecular biology of in vitro and in vivo models of ovarian cancer, metabolomics, and high throughput genomics, and will be executed through multi-disciplinary and cross-institutional collaborations.
