Job Description

TWO POSTDOCTORAL FELLOW POSITIONS IN TUMOR METABOLISM AND IMMUNOLOGY are available immediately for highly motivated young scientists to investigate the role of signaling basis and therapy development in cancer cell metabolism and anti-tumor immunotherapy. We aim to elucidate the mechanistic basis of diet-fueled "metabolic rewiring" that is specifically required by oncogenic mutations for tumor growth, and the underlying mechanisms by which diet-derived nutrients and metabolic abnormalities associated with metabolic disorders/diseases influence cancer initiation, progression, and responses to therapies. These studies will provide mechanistic insights that inform not only reliable diet advice for lower cancer risk, but also development of novel anti-metabolism targeted therapies for cancer treatment.
