Cancer and RNA Biology Postdoctoral Fellowship - Ph.D or MD/Ph.D
A funded postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Elsa R. Flores in the Department of Molecular Oncology at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, FL. The research project is focused on understanding the functions of the p53 family on the immune system and its impact on tumor development and progression. Projects will also involve the investigation of non-coding RNAs in these processes and are funded by an NCI Outstanding Investigator Grant awarded to Dr. Flores. Competitive candidates will have a strong work ethic, immunology background, and interest in learning mouse models of human cancer.
Interested applicants should submit CV and 3(three) letters of recommendation to Elsa.Flores@moffitt.org
Clonal Evolution of Cancer Postdoctoral Fellowship - Ph.D or MD/Ph.D
This Postdoc will be part of a multi-disciplinary team in the Departments of Integrated Mathematical Oncology (IMO) and Molecular Oncology, where wet- and dry-lab components of in-vitro and in-vivo experiments are seamlessly integrated to meet the project’s central challenge: quantifying the growth rates of coexisting tumor clones. The position is fully funded through an NCI R00 awarded to Dr. Andor and an R35 NCI Outstanding Investigator Award awarded to Dr. Flores. The postdoctoral researcher will be co-mentored by Drs. Andor and Flores. We seek applications from individuals to test the potential of the very long-term legacy that DNA-damage entails on a cell – genomic instability – as new biomarker of DNA damage response.
Interested applicants should send a cover letter , current CV, contact information for three references and a brief personal statement describing their perspective on the co-evolution of tumor cells and therapy to Drs. Flores and Andor at Elsa.Flores@Moffitt.org and Noemi.Andor@Moffitt.org and reference requisition 22471.
