Job DescriptionGeorgetown University Medical Center has made a major commitment to -omics and metabolism as a critical component to our cancer biology and systems medicine initiatives. A funded position is now available through the NCI T32 Interdisciplinary Program in Tumor Biology at the Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center for a radiation biology postdoctoral fellow, with particular emphasis in -omics analysis. There are several areas of potential focus including: 1) biomarker discovery in tissues and biofluids; 2) radiation quality specific responses; 3) short and long term responses to radiation, including the involvement of the microbiome. State of the art-instrumentation in the areas of genomics, proteomics, and metabolomics allow for the comprehensive analysis of samples for a systems biology approach.
This position is funded to carry out a variety of studies in animal models and patient samples, and the recruit will have opportunities to participate in and build on these projects, in addition to developing independent research projects. A strong background in radiation and mouse models is highly desirable. Experience with statistical analysis, basic bioinformatics and familiarity with concepts in mass spectrometry and genetics are preferred. Independent thinking, verbal and writing skills, multitasking and solving problems are encouraged to apply for a position in this dynamic lab. A postdoctoral grant proposal will be required to be written and encouraged to be submitted in the first year, per the program’s requirements.
The current funded position requires U.S. citizenship (or green card).
