Postdoctoral Scholar Position in the Department of Urology at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine

 

A postdoctoral scholar position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Magda Grabowska within the Department of Urology at Case Western Reserve University. The CWRU Department of Urology is an interactive research group, focused on translational genitourinary cancer research. We are seeking a highly motivated individual to study the role of nuclear factor I (NFI) transcription factors in castrate resistant prostate cancer in vitro and in vivo. The position is available immediately and is funded for four years. However, the applicant will be expected to apply for postdoctoral fellowships to support their emerging career. The successful candidate will be responsible for executing experiments, performing data analysis, writing manuscripts, presenting at national meetings, and contributing to grant applications. We are committed to career development in the research group, and additional resources are available through the CWRU Office of Postdoctoral Affairs (https://case.edu/postdoc/).

Interested candidates should send a cover letter, their CV, and contact information for three references to Dr. Grabowska at mmg126@case.edu .

The ideal candidate should have just completed or be nearing completion of a PhD in cell, molecular, or cancer biology or a related field. Experience in prostate cancer research is preferred but not required. A record of peer-reviewed publications and strong written and oral communication skills are essential. Candidates with experience in standard molecular biology techniques, cell culture, in vivo studies, and histology are highly encouraged to apply.  Salary is based upon the National Institutes of Health (NIH) National Research Service Award (NRSA) pay scale and the position includes benefits.
