A Post-Doctoral Associate "Hormel Fellow" position is available immediately in the
laboratory of Dr. Liang Liu at the Hormel Institute, University of Minnesota.
Our laboratory pursues both basic and translational cancer research using a combination of
functional genomics and bioinformatics analysis, cell-based studies, clinical tumor
specimens, and mouse models.
Research topics include the identification of novel molecular targets and pathways in skin
tumorigenesis, dissection of the crosstalk between genetic and epigenetic mechanisms in
cancer and inflammation, and functional validation of biomarker genes that we identified for
developing targeted cancer prevention and treatment.
The Hormel Institute, a biomedical research center of the University of Minnesota, was established in 1942 and has an excellent reputation and long history for producing world-class medical research. The Institute's research success has resulted in a second major expansion of its research facilities and includes an additional new state-of-the-art laboratory building that opened in January 2016. The Hormel Institute offers its research scientists complete access to state-of-the- art cutting edge equipment that includes a cryo-electron microscope (Titan Krios and Tecnai G2 Spirit Biotwin); FACS cell sorter; confocal microscopy; flow cytometry; protein crystallography robotics and defraction system; nano-HPLC-AB SCIEX triple TOF 5600 mass spectrometry; Leica tissue processor, embedder and microtome; real-time PCR instrumentation; 5 racks of Linux GPU supercomputers for computational biology and bioinformatics; spectrophotometers; and Western blot imagers.
