A Postdoctoral Research Fellow position is available in the Tao laboratory in the group of Cancer Biology and Immunotherapies at Sanford Research. The Tao lab (https://research.sanfordhealth.org/researchers-and-labs/tao-lab) uses mouse models and human cells to discover genetic determinants of cell plasticity, self-renewal, and differentiation in bone progenitor cells as well as those factors in the cancer stem cell niche that promotes osteosarcoma. This position will have a dual focus on the skeletal biology and bone cancer. This position will require contributions both as an individual and as part of a team, as well as mentorship to junior lab members. The Tao lab has broad expertise in developmental biology, protein biochemistry, model organism genetics and genomics, signal transduction, and molecular biology, and provides a vibrant research environment for career advancement toward academic or industry positions.
Candidate requirements: we are looking for a highly motivated individual with a PhD in a biomedical sciences related field, with at least one first author publication. A successful candidate must be committed to a career in research in bone biology, mouse models, and/or cancer genetics, epigenetics, and therapeutics. The candidate should be able to drive an individual project but also be highly collaborative. A solid skillset and experience in molecular and cell biology is essential. The candidate should be independent, enthusiastic, and have good communication skills with fluency in English.
To apply, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your curriculum vitae, a cover letter clearly stating your motivation and future research interests/plans and the names/contact information of at least three referees. Please indicate "Postdoc application" in the subject line.
博士后研究员位于Sanford Research癌症生物学和免疫治疗组的Tao实验室。 Tao实验室（https://research.sanfordhealth.org/researchers-and-labs/tao-lab）使用小鼠模型和人类细胞来发现骨祖细胞中细胞可塑性，自我更新和分化的遗传决定因素作为促进骨肉瘤的癌症干细胞生态位的那些因素。这个职位将重点关注骨骼生物学和骨癌。这个职位既需要作为个人，也需要作为团队的一部分，以及对初级实验室成员的指导。 Tao实验室在发育生物学，蛋白质生物化学，模式生物遗传学和基因组学，信号转导和分子生物学方面拥有广泛的专业知识，并为学术或行业职位的职业发展提供了充满活力的研究环境。
