Postdoctoral position in persistence of anticancer drugs and 3D tumor
Postdoctoral positions are available in the laboratory of Dr Eugen Dhimolea at the Department of Molecular Pharmacology and at the Albert Einstein Cancer Center (a NCI– Designated Cancer Center) of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Our research activities focus on the state transitions of cancer cells that allow therapy persistence, and on the effect of the three-dimensional tumor microenvironment on the tumor response to pharmacological and immune therapies (for more details, please see our 2021 publications in Cancer Cell and Cancer Research). Talented researchers broadly interested in any of these topics are encouraged to apply.
Ongoing projects provide the opportunity to gain expertise in a wide range of cell culture systems (including novel 3D organoid culture and co-culture models), animal models, molecular biology, target discovery , experimental therapies and advanced phenotypic drug screening approaches.
Interested candidates are invited to send their CV and the names of 2-3 references to [email protected]
