Negotiates and/or drafts agreements, including MTAs, CDAs, subawards, and other agreements, in collaboration with faculty, departmental staff, UTRF, Research Office, legal advisors, and other administrators on behalf of UTHSC.
We are seeking ambitious postdoctoral fellows with a track record of productivity and strong interest in translational cancer research. Applicants should have a recent doctoral degree (PhD, MD, or combined degrees).
The postdoctoral fellow will work closely with the PIs, imaging scientists, and students in the research group. The fellow will interact with radiation oncologists, IT support staff, clinical therapy and physics staff, and clinical scientists of medical imaging equipment manufacturers.
A postdoctoral position is available immediately in the Department of Infectious Diseases at St Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, TN. Research is broadly focused on pneumococcal genetics and host-pathogen interactions.
The successful applicant will conduct independent research on developing high-throughput assays to annotate functional non-coding sequences in blood cells. He/she will also apply genome/epigenome engineering technologies to test if and how CRMs are involved in blood disorders.
hese studies will be supported by the multidisciplinary approaches available in the Zakharenko laboratory. These approaches include single-cell electrophysiology, two-photon imaging, two-photon glutamate uncaging, optogenetics, in vivo calcium imaging, and mouse behavior.
A postdoctoral position is immediately available in the Yu lab to develop and apply computational and systems biology approaches to dissect the molecular circuits that drive tumorigenesis, tumor immune-escape and drug resistance, and identify biomarkers and combination therapies (particularly with immunotherapy) for the treatment of pediatric cancer patients.
A postdoctoral position is available to study mechanisms of Hedgehog signal transduction. The successful candidate will join a collaborative work group aimed at understanding how the Hedgehog pathway is regulated during development, and dissecting how its regulation is usurped in cancer.
Plan, setup and execute assays for mouse models supporting primary investigators, post-docs, and research technologists; have hands-on experience with detecting sequences by polymerase chain reaction amplification and primer binding.
The selected postdoctoral fellow will actively develop their own research project, perform laboratory experiments with minimal supervision, develop new procedures as needed and interact collaboratively with other members of the lab. The successful candidate will also actively participate in the publication and presentation of research results.
Successful candidates will receive unique training across the full spectrum of techniques that are now required to identify potential bacterial and viral targets, and to develop novel therapeutics against them.
A Bioinformatics Research Scientist position is available in the lab of Dr. Charles Mullighan, MBBS (Hons), MSc, MD. This position offers an unrivaled opportunity to be embedded in an environment leading integrated genomic and experimental studies in Leukemia.
