The Department of Cancer Biology within the College of Medicine at the University of Cincinnati is seeking a Postdoctoral Fellowship. Individuals who have recently been awarded a PhD, MD, or MD/PhD and whose goals are to acquire additional training and experience in order to enter a career in Cancer Biology research in academia and/or a research center.
The postdoctoral candidate will choose to work under the mentorship of one of 20 preceptors. Possible areas of research include the role of receptor tyrosine kinases in hormonally related malignancies (Susan Waltz), role of autophagy in promoting the development of kidney cancer (Maria Czyzyk-Krzeska), targeting oncogenic metabolism and signaling in cancer (David Plas, Agsuo Sasaki), immune surveillance and immunotherapy targets (Laura Conforti), Notch signaling (Rhett Kovall), TGF beta family signaling (Tom Thompson). The overall goal of the training program is to provide training to promising cancer researchers as they work to identify pathways that can serve as targets for cancer treatment. Trainees will participate in many career development activities in addition to performing research.
