Post Doctoral Scientist – Center for Childhood Cancer and Blood Diseases
This position is in the Center for Childhood Cancer and Blood Diseases in Dr. Genevieve Kendall’s lab. We are seeking a motivated postdoctoral scholar to join our lab group. Our team is focused on developing basic and translational models of pediatric sarcomas, which are devastating and aggressive solid tumors with limited therapeutic options. Specifically, we study rhabdomyosarcoma, which is thought to arise from a misregulation of skeletal muscle developmental pathways. 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. Identified targets and therapeutic strategies are then confirmed via our model systems and through collaborations with the extensive expertise present in the Center for Childhood Cancer and Blood Diseases, Division of Hematology/Oncology and BMT, and in the Institute for Genomic Medicine. 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 zebrafish modeling of disease, skeletal muscle development, RNAseq, ATACseq and single cell sequencing is not required, but would be beneficial. The selected candidate must be professional, self-motivated, and dedicated, with strong communication and interpersonal skill sets that will 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.
