Job Location
445 North Fifth Street
Phoenix, AZ 85004
Job Description

The Pancreatic Cancer Research Laboratory at TGen currently has a postdoctoral fellowship position available. Our lab aims to develop novel targeted therapies for patients with advanced pancreatic cancer. We employ genomic and biochemical approaches such as whole genome sequencing and tissue array immunohistochemistry to identify alterations responsible for driving the progression and/or chemoresistance of pancreatic cancer.  Promising alterations are further validated for drug targeting and candidate therapies are then developed and tested in cell line and animal models. By closely working with clinicians at TGen's Clinical Services, we seek to rapidly translate laboratory findings to the clinic.  Promising therapies are promptly evaluated in pilot clinical trials.   Conversely, hypotheses generated by clinicians based on clinical observations are readily tested in the laboratory.  The Fellow will be mentored by Dr. Haiyong Han.

Requirements

PhD graduate with a strong background in molecular biology and/or biochemistry with a focus on cancer

Previous research experience or training in the fields of cancer biology or equivalent area

Animal model experience

Excellent written and verbal communication skills

About Our Organization

The Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen) is a non‐profit biomedical research institute based in Phoenix, Arizona, focused on research that can help patients with cancer, neurological disorders, diabetes and other debilitating conditions. Working with a worldwide network of collaborators in the scientific and medical communities, TGen researchers study the genetic components of both common and complex diseases. Through genomic analysis, we learn how DNA, genes and proteins – the microscopic building block of life – can affect human health. Our 30 lead investigators and nearly 200 support personnel at sites in Phoenix, Scottsdale and Flagstaff, Arizona, are dedicated to improving patient care and quality of life through precision medicine, best defined as the right therapy, for the right patient, at the right time.  For more information, visit: www.tgen.org.
