A postdoctoral research fellow position is available at the University of California, San Francisco at the new Helen Diller Comprehensive Cancer Center (Mission Bay Campus), to study the basic molecular mechanisms promoting quantitative and qualitative regulation in the translational control of gene expression and how deregulations in this process lead to distinct steps of cancer progression.
The potential candidate will utilize mouse models for components of the translation machinery in combination with novel proteomics, ribosome-profiling, and pharmacological strategies to study the dynamics of translation control in gene expression, in normal and cancer cells. Highly motivated individuals with a recent Ph.D., M.D. or M.D./Ph.D. and a background in mouse genetics, biochemistry, or cellular and molecular biology are encouraged to apply. Evidence of scientific accomplishment is required and bioinformatics skills are desirable. Requests should be addressed to: firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
