Job Description

Postdoctoral Fellow Opportunity- Fearon Lab – Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory – Long Island, NY

The post-doctoral fellow will join a lab that is studying immune suppression in pancreatic cancer, using mouse models of this disease. Our work has advanced to the stage where we are assessing new drugs that affect a pathway that has been shown to mediate immune suppression in an early phase clinical study of patients with pancreatic cancer. Although candidates do not necessarily need an immunology background, they must have experience examining biological systems in vivo and in vitro.

At the Guardian, the University of Edinburgh's Nikolay Ogryzko argues that universities need to better invest in postdocs' careers.

Researchers who go persevere after an early funding setback end up with more highly cited papers later on, according to the Economist.

Nature News reports that female scientists setting up their first labs tend to have lower salaries and smaller staffs than their male peers.

A new analysis by Northwestern University researchers finds that female and male first-time PIs receive differing amounts of funding.
