Three postdoctoral fellow positions are immediately available in Dr. Qingfei Zheng’s laboratory in the Department of Radiation Oncology and Center for Cancer Metabolism at The Ohio State University. The positions are supported by the Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center (OSUCCC) to study the interplay between metabolic syndrome and cancer development. The Zheng Lab aims to apply chemical and synthetic biology approaches towards studying cancer metabolism, epigenetics, and tumor microbiome for the development of new personalized cancer therapies. The long-term goal of the lab is 1) to understand the mechanisms of cancer-related metabolic disorders and epigenetic dysregulation and 2) to develop new cancer therapeutics at the “atomic” level. The Zheng lab will focus on both basic and translational research areas. The laboratory collaborates with outstanding faculty in the newly established Center for Cancer Metabolism and Pelotonia Institute for Immuno-Oncology. There is a highly interactive and collaborative environment within OSUCCC. Postdocs will get great training opportunities and closely interact with the world-class outstanding faculty members.
A young lab cannot take off without motivated people. Chemists and biologists from any fields are welcome to join the Zheng Lab. Successful candidates are expected to work closely with Dr. Zheng in the lab to design and carry out experiments, analyze, organize, and present data in written form and to meetings, and to write papers and grants. Salaries, stipend, and benefits are highly competitive and commensurate with university policy and NIH guidelines.
Postdoctoral fellow candidates should hold a Ph.D. degree (or will complete one soon) in chemical or biological science areas. Prior experiences with peptide synthesis, chemical probe development, enzymology, proteomics/metabolomics, bioinformatics, and anaerobic microorganisms are a plus but not required.
Interested candidates should send a cover letter summarizing their research interests and CV with a publication list and names and contact information of three references (preferably in a single PDF) to “ZhengLab.OSU@gmail.com”. Informal inquiries are also welcome.
