Postdoctoral Candidate - Dr. Shiio's Lab

  • Lab: Dr. Shiio
  • Hours: Full time
  • Position Status: Open

 

The Greehey Children’s Cancer Research Institute (Greehey CCRI) at the UT Health San Antonio – San Antonio is looking for an outstanding postdoctoral fellow to work in the laboratory of Yuzuru Shiio, M.D., Ph.D.

We are seeking highly motivated candidates who have a strong background in molecular cell biology, particularly characterization of protein functions using cell culture, immunoblotting, immunoprecipitation, and immunofluorescence, and who have high-quality research publications. Employing a combination of proteomics and standard molecular cell biology approaches, our laboratory works on cytokine signaling and fusion oncoproteins in children’s cancers. Please see the Shiio webpage at http://gccri.uthscsa.edu/YShiio.html for further information about our work.

The successful candidate will receive extensive training on proteomics-based discovery (secretome proteomics to identify cytokines important in different children’s cancers, protein expression profiling of subcellular fractions and organelles, and interactome proteomics to identify novel protein – protein interactions) and follow-up of proteomic findings (molecular cell biological characterization of protein functions and signaling).

How to apply

Candidates should express their interest in the position by email and should include their career goals, research experience and interests, curriculum vitae with publication record, and contact information for three references. Please send an email of interest to shiio@uthscsa.edu for consideration.
