Post Doctoral Scientist – Center for Childhood Cancer Research
We are seeking a motivated postdoctoral scholar to join Dr. Genevieve Kendall’s lab at Nationwide Children’s Hospital and The Ohio State University. Our team is focused on developing basic and translational models of pediatric muscle cancer, which are devastating and aggressive solid tumors with limited therapeutic options. We use cell culture and transgenic zebrafish systems to understand the underlying biology of the disease and then apply that knowledge to identify therapeutic targets.
With guidance from Dr. Kendall, you will be responsible for leading an independent project that addresses our shared interests and aligns with your career goals. Your responsibilities will include performing experiments, determining the next steps, developing and implementing new and existing protocols, analyzing and presenting your results and conclusions, generating figures, and writing and publishing manuscripts. A background in cancer biology and/or genomics would be beneficial. The selected candidate must be professional, self-motivated, and dedicated, with strong communication and interpersonal skill sets that fit our team. You will have many opportunities to learn new skill sets, present your work, develop professionally, and contribute to identifying new therapies for pediatric cancers in a dynamic and positive environment.
