Job DescriptionThe Duke University laboratory of Dr. Dorothy Sipkins is seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral associate with research interest in metastasis and the tumor microenvironment. Our group has a diverse and stimulating environment with projects in basic and translational research as well as clinical trial studies. We utilize mouse models of breast cancer and leukemia to study the role of the microenvironment, including immune cell responses, in tumor cell dormancy, treatment resistance and metastasis (Price et al., Science Translational Medicine, 2016, Yao et al., Nature 2018, Whiteley et al., Nat Rev Cancer 2021). This work utilizes cutting edge approaches, such as intravital microscopy to track tumor cells in mice in real time and spatial transcriptomics of mouse and human specimens. The resources and support for postdoctoral fellows at Duke is outstanding.
This position requires a PhD in cell biology, immunology, or other relevant areas of biomedical sciences. Experience in one or more of the following areas is desirable: 1) In vivo mouse models (willingness to work with animal models is a must), 2) Immunology (flow cytometry) 3) Molecular biology techniques. Experience in bio-informatics is a plus. The ideal candidate should be motivated, innovative, with strong problem-solving and interpersonal skills and excitement to learn new techniques.
To apply, please provide CV/biosketch, brief statement of research interests/experience, and contact information for 3 references.
