The Rebecca Lab and the Fertig Lab @Johns Hopkins University are recruiting a joint postdoctoral researcher interested in developing single-cell multi-omics, lineage analyses, fate-mapping and high-content microscopy analysis techniques for the study of the tumor microenvironment, cancer metastases and therapy resistance.
Candidates will collaborate closely with Dr. Rebecca and Dr. Elana Fertig. They will also interact with a team of bioinformaticians, tumor biologists, immunologists and clinicians at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health and the Sydney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center to conduct research in a highly collaborative and scientifically stimulating environment. Ideal candidates have demonstrated expertise in signal transduction, drug resistance, metastasis, functional genomics or single-cell analysis studies.
Studying the functionality of tumor heterogeneity in tumor progression
