A postdoctoral fellow position is available in Dr. Mihriban Karaayvaz’s laboratory, at the Cleveland Clinic Lerner Research Institute. Two major focuses of our research are (1): studying the somatic genomics of breast cancer in individuals with germline BRCA1/2 predisposing mutations (https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/32064343/) and (2): investigating how tumor heterogeneity contributes to breast cancer development and treatment response (https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/30181541/).
We employ state-of-the-art single cell approaches to dissect molecular heterogeneity in pre-malignant and malignant lesions of the breast. Our long-term goal is to leverage the knowledge gained from these studies and develop innovative strategies for breast cancer chemoprevention and treatment.
We are seeking creative, committed individuals to join our team! The ideal candidate would have a Ph.D. degree with research training and experience in molecular biology, cell biology or cancer genetics and genomics. Please send your curriculum vitae, cover letter, and contact information for 3 references to Mihriban Karaayvaz (BABBK@ccf.org>).
