The Sohl Lab at San Diego State University in San Diego is seeking to hire a postdoctoral scientist to help advance our work on understanding how isocitrate dehydrogenase (IDH) drives cancer.


The successful candidate will lead a project on determining the organelle-specific consequences of cancer-relevant IDH1 mutations, and how alterations in organelle-specific pathways are communicated to other locations within the cell. The ideal candidate will have completed their Ph.D. and is a motivated, collaborative, ambitious, creative, and detail-oriented individual. The Laboratory is interested in independent, enthusiastic, and creative scientists that value collaboration in a diverse and enthusiastic lab environment. Ther lab recognizes the best and most creative when we represent a diverse group of scientists, so San Deigo State University encourages applications from under-tapped talent pools.
