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.
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.
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.
The successful candidate will be involved in the nuclear computational low-energy initiative (NUCLEI) see computingnuclei.org, and research activities of the ORNL/UTK Nuclear Theory Group including nuclear electroweak processes.
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.
The successful candidate will have primary responsibilities in installation and supervision of detector array at the Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), and in the data analysis.
