The Blackburn laboratory at the University of Kentucky is recruiting national and international post-doctoral fellows. We are seeking outstanding and motivated individuals who will be part of an enthusiastic and goal-oriented team that studies mechanisms of cancer progression and relapse in pediatric cancers. The Blackburn Lab is supported by the National Cancer Institute and the NIH Director’s Fund. Open research projects include: 1) analysis of leukemia stem cells and their niche, 2) defining mechanisms of cancer initiation and evolution, and 3) the role of the tumor microenvironment in cancer progression. These projects will utilize cutting-edge in vivo imaging in zebrafish cancer models, single cell sequencing technologies, and biological and biochemical techniques (human cell culture, PCR, western blot, etc) and are focused on identifying new aspects of cancer biology that can ultimately be therapeutically targeted.
