Job Description

The Indiana University School of Medicine is seeking postdoctoral fellows with expertise in breast cancer, genomics and informatics to participate on a team of researchers known as the Vera Bradley Scholars. The focus of work will include the integration of tumor and germline genomics with the overarching goal of optimally personalizing breast cancer therapies; this program is part of the Monogrammed Medicine Program supported by Vera Bradley.

The Vera Bradley Scholars will be supported for up to two years to conduct basic, translational and clinical research under the supervision of a team of faculty investigators. The program is designed to identify and prepare the next generation of breast cancer researchers for a career in academia and provide the tools to become independent investigators who will be competitive for peer-reviewed funding.

Stipends are competitive, and will be based on the NIH NRSA pay scale. Funds for conference travel and supplies will also be provided. Trainees in our program enjoy exposure to a rich cross section of trainees in other health care orientated programs. This multi-disciplinary exposure leads to a very lively interaction and advantageous cross-fertilization of ideas. Fellows interact at lab research meetings, seminars, didactic sessions, and while performing lab work.

Requirements

Qualified applicants should have an M.D. and/or Ph.D. in the biological sciences. We are looking for highly motivated, creative candidates willing to work hard in a collaborative environment.

How to Apply

Interested candidates can send a cover letter, CV and contact information for three references to:
