The Janowitz Laboratory at CSHL is seeking a highly motivated, creative, and interactive post-doctoral fellow with strong skills in molecular biology and analytical methods, as well as an interest in cancer biology, endocrinology, and immunology. We are in the process of building a team to research the host’s response to cancer, with the vision to deliver new treatment strategies and to discover fundamental biological interactions between organ systems. We are currently investigating the effect of systemic metabolic alterations in cancer on the immune system.
We are looking for candidates interested in developing their own research question in alignment with the interests and skills present in the laboratory and institution.
The selected candidate will be provided access to state-of-the-art laboratory space and the opportunity to discuss science in a relaxed but intensely focused atmosphere. Opportunities to learn about advanced microscopy, genetic engineering, and new sequencing techniques for detecting somatic mutations and transcriptional signatures, and data visualization will be provided. The option to learn about translational research will be provided.
