Precision Health Program (PHP) at Michigan State University has an opening for a postdoctoral fellow position in the area of cancer biology in application to the role of non-coding RNAs and their connection to cancer stem cells. Successful candidate will be part of vigorous program performing cutting edge research in the area of nanooncology focusing on fast growing and metastatic cancers and development of novel image-guided therapies.
Specifically, the successful applicant will be expected to:
Perform studies establishing connections between oncogenic miRNA and cancer stem cells and their role in cancer initiation and progression;
Investigate pathways and modulators of these connection and devise strategies to regulate them to arrest/regress tumor growth;
Collaborate with other members of the program and participate in team work towards devising image-guided therapies;
Mentor undergraduate and graduate students in the lab.
This position is a 12-month fixed-term appointment. Renewal of position is based on funding and performance.
The Precision Health Program in the Department of Radiology at Michigan State University is accepting applications for an Assistant to Full Professor position (tenure system); rank will be determined by qualifications. The successful candidate will be a highly innovative scientist with a Ph.D. in biomedical sciences, 8-10 years of research experience and a track record of excellence in nanotechnology in application to cancer, diabetes and other pathologies. Familiarity with application of nanoparticle carriers for therapy and in vivo imaging is a plus. The candidate is expected to establish a sustainable research program, participate in collaborative research, make significant scholarly contributions to their discipline, obtain extramural funding and engage in institutional and professional service.
