A postdoctoral position is available in the Laboratory for Molecular Cancer Biology, Department of Radiation Oncology, Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern University. Highly inquisitive postgraduates with strong interest in cancer biology are invited to apply to the laboratory of Dr. Athanassios Vassilopoulos (http://www.vassilopouloslab.com).
The individual working in this position is expected to have training in cancer biology with proficiency in techniques involving molecular and cell biology, signal transduction, and mouse genetics. The Vassilopoulos lab is focused on the elucidation of mechanisms involved in aging and tumor development with a specific emphasis on sirtuin biology. Besides basic mechanistic studies, the lab is conducting translational research to develop novel targeted therapeutic strategies effective against different cancer types. The lab utilizes numerous techniques from molecular biology and in vitro cell work, to the generation and use of mouse models. The lab possesses state-of-the-art equipment and is housed in a new, open-lab design research building.
