We are seeking a Postdoctoral Scholar to join the laboratory of Dr. Aaron Grossberg, part of the Brenden-Colson Center for Pancreatic Care and the Knight Cancer Institute at Oregon Health & Science University.
The Grossberg Laboratory is interested in understanding how cancer disrupts normal whole-body metabolism, with a specific emphasis on the cancer-associated wasting syndrome, cachexia. Our research focuses on the mechanisms by which pancreatic cancer influence metabolic programming in the liver, fat, and muscle. We use a multidisciplinary approach to investigate the communication network of the tumor macroenvironment, including mouse models of cancer, metabolomics, epigenetics, rigorous behavioral and physiologic measures, and a panel of molecular techniques used in both mouse and human samples.
For this position, we are looking for a candidate interested in the cellular, genetic, and epigenetic drivers of pancreatic cancer cachexia. Skills required for this position include advanced molecular and cellular biology techniques, drug delivery techniques and formulation platforms, pharmacologic and genetic mouse study expertise, protein interaction assays, high-resolution imaging, functional genomic analysis, and some bioinformatics skills. Preference given to applicants with large scale -omics data analysis expertise.
The Grossberg Lab believes strongly in promoting a healthy training environment, with active mentorship focused on meeting each trainee’s career goals. We are guided by curiosity and enthusiasm and strive to provide a safe environment to ask hard questions and take risks.
Ideal candidates should have no more than 1 year of postdoctoral experience and are expected to compete for internal and external funding. Highly motivated candidates should upload a cover letter describing your relevant qualifications, future interests, and expected start date; CV; and names and contact information for three references.
