Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research position in the laboratory of Dr. Anupriya Agarwal at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) in Portland, OR.
The Agarwal Lab focuses on identifying novel intrinsic- and extrinsic signaling pathways that are requisite for leukemia progression, clonal evolution, and drug resistance. The work will concentrate on the discovery and validation of new therapeutic targets in hematologic malignancies and the molecular characterization of signaling pathways involved in disease pathogenesis.
The position is in an interdisciplinary, collaborative, and highly translational environment in the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute and the Department of Hematology and Oncology in the OHSU School of Medicine. Highly-motivated candidates with expertise in molecular biology, hematopoiesis, cell signaling/ epigenetics, and in vivo models who are interested in a career in oncology basic/translational research will be most competitive for this position. We are looking for a highly-motivated individual who is capable and willing to make maximum use of excellent facilities and a productive environment and are interested in a career in oncology basic/translational research. They should have demonstrated their capabilities and enthusiasm by peer-reviewed publications.
PhD and a minimum of 4 years as a graduate student
