The Thoracic Oncology Research Laboratory in the Department of Surgery (Thoracic Surgery Section) at the University of Michigan is looking for an outstanding postdoctoral fellow with a strong background in the molecular biology of cancer and a sincere interest in developing new approaches to prevent and treat thoracic malignancies. The laboratory is focused on characterizing molecular and biologic alterations of esophageal and lung cancers, as well as premalignant lesions in each target. Broadly, laboratory interest includes: inhibiting cancer progression though the use of natural products and pharmacologic agents, investigating the role of genetics as well as environmental mediators of cancer (diet, obesity, microbial profile, tobacco use), and studying the phenomena of differential patient response to chemotherapy. Successful candidates will utilize a combination of genetic, pharmacologic, molecular and chemical biology techniques for target identification, understanding cancer-host interactions, investigating mechanisms of cancer inhibition and signaling mechanisms that contribute to cancer progression and therapeutic resistance. Skilled and motivated scientists with an interest in cancer biology and cancer prevention are strongly encouraged to apply.
