Postdoctoral Fellow in Cancer Biology
The Navin laboratory has an open position for a postdoctoral fellow in cancer biology in the department of Genetics at the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX. We seek a talented individual with a strong background in experimental molecular biology and cancer biology techniques. This individual will work on projects that use single cell DNA and RNA sequencing to study metastatic dissemination in human cancer samples and xenografts. The ideal candidate will have strong scientific writing skills, experience in genomics and computational biology, including experience in Unix/Linux, scripting languages (Perl, Python) and statistical languages (R, Matlab) and experience working with blood and circulating tumor cells.
Requirements: Ph.D. in Molecular Biology, Genomics or Cancer Biology
The Texas Medical Center in Houston houses MD Anderson and multiple other top-flight scientific institutions within walking distance (Baylor College of Medicine; UT Health Science Center; Rice University; Methodist Research Institute; TX A&M Institute of Biosciences and Technology), or within bicycling distance (U Houston). This immense depth of collaborators/ programs/ cores insures a cutting-edge research/ ideas environment. Houston boasts a diverse culture near the Gulf Coast, and affordable living in our nation’s fourth largest city. MD Anderson offers well-regarded professional development opportunities and benefits. This is an NIH pay-scale position.
