Postdoctoral Position in Developmental Signal Transduction

National Cancer Institute

Frederick, MD

Posted 5/23/2022

A postdoctoral position is available to study the role of ephrin and Wnt signaling pathways in cell movement and morphogenetic events. Signaling from the Eph/Ephrin and Wnt systems affect morphogenesis during development and have been shown to play an instructive role in tumor cell invasion. A combination of molecular, cell biological, and biochemical techniques are applied in the amphibian developmental and mammalian culture systems.

Our laboratory is located at the NCI-Frederick campus and offers state-of-the-art facilities in an exciting environment for postdoctoral research. The NCI offers competitive postdoctoral stipends. A strong background in molecular, cellular, or developmental biology is required. Interested candidates should have a Ph.D. and/or an M.D. and have less than 5 years postdoctoral experience. Fellows from abroad would receive a J1 visa.
