A postdoctoral fellowship is available immediately in the laboratory of Dr. Alessandra d’Azzo in the Department of Genetics. We are seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral scientist to study biological mechanisms involved in tumor progression and metastasis with special interest in tumor microenvironment. The d’Azzo lab uses animal models of pediatric lysosomal storage diseases to dissect mechanisms of pathogenesis downstream of lysosomal enzymes that are implicated in aging and other adult diseases such as cancer. The candidate must have a strong background in molecular and cell biology, specifically in cancer biology.
Candidates should have a Ph.D. and have published in peer-reviewed journals. A prerequisite is experience in basic methods of molecular biology and biochemistry. In addition, the candidate will be expected to work well within a team environment.
