The MacKeigan Lab within Van Andel Research Institute’s Center for Cancer and Cell Biology has a position available for one Postdoctoral Fellow. This postdoctoral position is available for a motivated PhD graduate who meets the description outlined below. The fellow will investigate autophagy in the context of KRAS-driven lung cancer using live cell microscopy and flow cytometry.
Description of an Ideal Candidate:
A Ph.D. graduate with experience and publications in molecular biology and/or cell signaling
A team player who shares knowledge with lab members
A collaborator who is confident interacting with researchers from other disciplines
An effective communicator who will contribute to a fun and positive work environment
Creative, motivated, collaborative, and optimistic, with a strong desire to impact human health
The scope of this fellowship project includes mammalian cell culture, dissection of relevant signaling pathways, live-cell/confocal microscopy and quantitation, RNAi, gene-editing, and flow cytometry. The candidate will work with Dr. MacKeigan and collaborators at Los Alamos National Laboratory to develop a model of autophagy-mediated survival in chemoresistant lung cancer.
