Laboratory research focuses on understanding the etiology of pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer to develop better prevention, diagnostic, and treatment strategies. This work focuses on leveraging changes to glycosylation and the cross-talk between ductal cells with their microenvironment during disease pathogenesis. We rely heavily on three-dimensional organoid mono- and co-culture systems as well as genetically engineered mouse models. Through collaborations with both clinicians and pharmaceutical companies, we will bridge the divide between basic science and patient care.
Post-doctoral positions are immediately available for individuals with a good understanding of cancer and disease modeling. This position offers the opportunity to help build a team from the ground up in this newly opened laboratory. Ideal candidates should be intellectually curious, well-organized and well-versed in constructive problem solving. Experience with cell culture and mouse modeling is preferred.
Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. in Biological Sciences or related fields.
