Postdoctoral Fellow Position Available in Cancer and Stem Cell Biology
An NIH-funded postdoctoral position is immediately available in the Masri Lab at the University of California, Irvine (UC Irvine). We are seeking independent and motivated postdoctoral candidates interested in a multi-disciplinary approach to cancer biology.
The Masri lab studies how disruption of the circadian clock impacts colorectal cancer by regulating intestinal stem cell biology, cellular metabolism and signaling pathways governing survival and proliferation. We utilize both genetically engineered mice as well as tumor organoid models to dissect fundamental questions in cancer biology linked to gene expression, metabolic flux using stable isotope tracing and metabolomics, metagenomic sequencing of the gut microbiome, and the impact of inflammation on the tumor microenvironment.
For more details about the Masri Lab, including relevant publications (Trends in Endocrinology and Metabolism, 2019; Cell, 2016; Cell, 2014), please visit our website at:
The Masri Lab is part of the Department of Biological Chemistry, Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center, and the Center for Epigenetics and Metabolism at UC Irvine. We are located in Southern California (Orange County), between Los Angeles and San Diego. For further details about UC Irvine, please visit: https://uci.edu/
Interested candidates should have a background in basic molecular and cellular biology. Experience with mouse handling is a plus but not required. At least one first author publication from the graduate training period is encouraged.
If interested, please contact Dr. Selma Masri (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the following:
• Brief statement of research interests
• CV detailing research experience, publications, and fellowships (if applicable)
• Names of 2-3 references that are familiar with the research experience of the candidate and can provide letters of recommendation upon request
