Michigan Medicine's Department of Radiation Oncology is seeking a postdoctoral research fellow to support our research efforts.
This postdoctoral research fellow will focus on conducting preclinical experiments aimed at advancing our understanding of radiation and radiation-induced DNA damage on tumor immunology and immunotherapy efficacy. The ideal candidate will perform in vitro and in vivo experiments that allow us to develop new therapeutic targets or approaches for the treatment of cancer.
A PhD in biomedical research is required. A publication record demonstrating application of analytics skills is also a requirement for this position.
Experience with flow cytometry, molecular biology, tumor immunology, and cancer biology is desirable. We are looking for an enthusiastic, ambitious, and self-motivated individual who can independently conduct research with strong verbal and written communication skills. We are looking for someone interested in working in a collaborative environment with junior and senior lab members.
This is a 100% NIH grant-funded position that will report directly to Dr. Meredith Morgan, Associate Professor. In collaboration with Dr. Mike Green’s laboratory we seek to define and harness the determinants of inflammation which shape anti-tumoral immunity and influence cancer therapy efficacy with an emphasis on radiation, DNA damage, and translation of preclinical research to clinical trials.
