PittHealthSci Pittsburgh, PA
A postdoc or research instructor position is available immediately to work on NIH- and AHA-funded research projects in the fields of cancer cell signaling and stroke in the Department of Pharmacology and Chemical Biology at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine.
Our laboratory is involved in studies seeking to understand how protein kinase signaling is regulated in normal and diseased states and how they impact disease progression in cancer and ischemic stroke. The major research focuses are the pathological molecular mechanisms of protein kinase signaling, functional evaluation in mouse models of cancer and stroke, and development of protein kinase-targeted therapeutics for these diseases.
Bench work, train fellows and students, write reports and manuscripts
Candidates must have a PhD or equivalent in a related field, solid training in molecular biology, cell biology, genetics, signal transduction, and strong written communication skills. Knowledge and experience with rodent models of cancer or cerebral ischemia are desirable.
