Employment Opportunities in Molecular Oncology
The Department of Molecular Oncology at the H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center and Research Institute (Moffitt) is seeking outstanding applicants for a tenure-track faculty position at the Assistant, Associate or Senior Member/Full Professor level in the area of cancer metabolism.
The Karreth lab seeks to recruit a talented and driven postdoctoral fellow to investigate the functions of non-coding RNAs in melanoma. The successful candidate will conceive and spearhead independent projects that are centered on one of three ongoing areas of interest: 1) The non-coding functions of protein-coding mRNAs; 2) circRNAs in melanoma development and drug resistance; and 3) lncRNAs and miRNAs as drivers of melanoma metastasis. These projects will involve molecular biology and RNA biochemistry techniques, and utilize a high-throughput melanoma mouse-modeling approach that the Karreth lab recently developed. Therefore, prior expertise in molecular biology, RNA biology and/or mouse modeling is essential.

The Mann lab is dedicated to understanding the molecular events that drive cancer progression. We employ computational, in vitro and novel in vivo approaches to characterize how genes cooperate to promote pancreatic cancer and myeloid leukemia progression, with the goal of identifying signaling nodes that may be explored for diagnostic or therapeutic efficacy to better treat cancer patients.

Postdoctoral Fellow - P53 Cancer Biology at H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center & Research Institute posted by Dr. Jiandong Chen
The Chen Lab studies the structure, regulation, and therapeutic targeting of p53, MDM2 and MDMX proteins. The research interest of the lab is in investigating signaling mechanisms that activate p53 in response to stress and develop novel strategies for therapeutic targeting of wild type and mutant p53 in cancer treatment.
