To Learn about TGen please see: tgen.org
Incredible postdoctoral fellowship opportunity in the Glioma Research Lab.
Dr. Michael Berens, Head of the Brain Tumor Unit and Deputy Directors at the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen) is currently seeking to hire a Postdoctoral Research Scholar.
There are multiple fellowship opportunities in the Brain Tumor Unit and throughout TGen. This particular position is funded by a minority fellowship grant, a grant designed to increase participation in the scientific research workforce of historically underrepresented groups. We encourage all individuals to apply, if it is determined you are not eligible for a minority fellowship grant position you will be considered for other positions.
This position involves design, execution, and supervision of technical personnel conducting experiments on the genetics and biochemistry (signal transduction pathways) underlying the invasive behavior of human tumor cells (primarily glioma). The Postdoctoral Scholar will work closely with Dr. Berens on peer-reviewed and new projects that involve co-investigators within TGen and at outside institutions. The Scholar will assume progressively more autonomous responsibilities for project development and execution with the aim of career maturation towards being an independent (extramurally-funded) scientist. The Fellow will assist in manuscript preparation, grant proposal development, and progress reports.
- Ph.D. (completed or near completion) in Molecular Biology or related field is desired.
- Prior research experience or training in the field of cancer biology is preferred.
- Proven track record of creativity and established track record of publishing in peer-reviewed journals.
- Excellent written and verbal communication skills.
