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.

The Blackburn Lab is part of the NCI-designated Markey Cancer Center. We are committed to the career development of our trainees and their success is our top priority. Postdoctoral fellows joining the lab would join a multi-disciplinary, highly collaborative training environment.
Salary will be at or above published guidelines of the National Institutes of Health, with travel funds available to attend national and international meetings. A multi-year commitment to postdoctoral training is expected.
