Post-Doctoral Recruitment

Boiko Lab

Boiko

A postdoctoral position is available immediately in the Boiko laboratory of the Chao Comprehensive Cancer Center. The main focus of research is to study developmental aspects of melanoma initiation and progression using human primary melanoma tumor samples and mouse models.

Candidates ideally would have experience in mammalian tissue culture, molecular biology and live animal handling. Experience in screening and designing RNAi libraries, FACS, immunohistochemistry and microscopy analysis is strongly preferred. Candidates with a background in cancer and developmental biology or skin regeneration are highly encouraged to apply.

The successful candidate will have a demonstrated ability to be a leading author on peer-reviewed publications, provide innovative solutions to complex problems, and have the ability to apply and receive fellowship/scholarship awards. Candidate will work with an interdisciplinary team of scientists associated with Sue and Bill Gross Stem Cell CIRM Institute and the NCI-designated Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center.

Please send CV, a two-page summary of research interests and the names and phone numbers of three references to Alexander Boiko, PhD.

 

Dai Lab

Xing Dai

Postdoctoral positions are immediately available in the Dai laboratory of the UC Irvine Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center.

The main focus of research is related to the transcriptional and chromatin control in breast and skin stem cells.

Applicants should have strong background training in molecular biology, cell biology, or related fields. Experience in mouse models, immunology or stem cells is preferable but not essential.

Applicants should send curriculum vitae along with names and addresses of three references to Xing Dai, PhD.

 

Ganesan Lab

Ganesan

Postdoctoral positions are currently available in the Ganesan laboratory of the Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center.

The main focus of research is to understand the cellular mechanisms that regulate melanogenesis and melanoma chemoresistance. The work involves translational studies with human tissue and mouse models.

The ideal candidate for the position would be a recent doctoral graduate who is highly motivated and has expertise in cell culture techniques, advanced microscopy techniques, RNAi technology and transgenic mouse models.

If interested, please forward your CV to Anand K. Ganesan, MD, PhD.

 

McClelland Lab

McClelland

Postdoctoral positions are currently available in the McClelland laboratory of the Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center.

The main focus of research is on therapy delivery to breast tumors using salmonella, and on prognostic markers in prostate cancer.

In the latter projects, mouse models and high-throughput genetics of bacteria are used. In the latter projects, human tissues, PCR, sequencing and antibodies are used.

The ideal candidate for this position will be a recent doctoral graduate, who is highly motivated and has expertise in both bench work and bioinformatics or statistics. If interested, please forward your CV to Michael McClelland, PhD.

 

Zhao Lab

Zhao

Postdoctoral positions are available in the Zhao lab at the Sue and Bill Gross Stem Cell Research Center, the Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center and UC Irvine Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences to study stem cell fate/functions, stem cell/cancer interactions, immunomodulation, and drug delivery to develop more effective and safer stem cell-based therapies.

Highly motivated candidates with a recent PhD or an equivalent degree from a biology background with experiences in stem cell biology and engineering, cancer biology, immunology, brain and neurological diseases, cell homing/trafficking and metastasis, or cancer stem cell are invited to apply.

The Zhao laboratory is located in the new stem cell center building and is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities. Successful candidates will join an interdisciplinary and collaborative team working with bioengineers, material scientists and chemists to develop next-generation tools to address unmet challenges in stem cell therapy and cancer diagnosis. Successful candidates will enjoy both cutting-edge research and beautiful Southern California.

If interested, please forward your CV to Weian Zhao, PhD.
