Postdoctoral fellowship position is immediately available in the laboratory of Dr. Michael A. Davies, Associate Professor in the Departments of Melanoma Medical Oncology, Translational Molecular Pathology, and Systems Biology. The focus of the lab is to study oncogenic factors and pathways that drive disease progression and therapeutic resistance in melanoma. This position will include focused studies on central nervous system (CNS) metastases, including tumors in the brain parenchyma and the leptomeninges. Experiments will utilize cell lines, mouse models/xenografts, and/or clinical specimens. Applicants should be experienced in molecular biology techniques, including tissue culture; assessment of growth inhibition and apoptosis; DNA/RNA/protein isolation; DNA sequencing; RNA expression profiling; Western blotting; and immunohistochemistry. Applicants should also have experience with mouse models, including tumor establishment, administration of treatments, tumor measurements, and tumor/tissue harvests. Experience with analysis of high-throughput data (i.e., whole exome sequencing, RNA sequencing), and animal models of metastasis and/or orthotopic injections, is preferred.
