A postdoctoral position currently available in the Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Department at the University of Nebraska Medical Center focused on evaluating the role of mucins in pancreatic cancer pathology. The potential candidate is expected to perform various cell and molecular biology techniques and work with the genetically modified mouse models to evaluate the contribution of MUC5AC. He/she will investigate the MUC5AC-driven stromal heterogeneity, and the therapeutic potential of targeting MUC5AC using murine, and cell line models.
PhD in scientific field
