TGen - Postdoctoral Fellow - Translational Research
Job posting number: #7157587 (Ref:10022125)
Posted: June 29, 2023
Application Deadline: Open Until Filled
TGen, the Translational Genomics Research Institute, is an affiliate of City of Hope. We are an Arizona-based, nonprofit medical research institute dedicated to conducting groundbreaking research with life-changing results. We work to unravel the genetic components of common and complex diseases, including cancer, neurological disorders, infectious disease, and rare childhood disorders. By identifying treatment options in this manner, we believe medicine becomes more rational, more precise and, well, more personal.
At TGen, we are setting a new medical standard where the future of medicine is happening now. We are pioneers in deciphering the story a person’s genome has to tell. For individuals faced with a serious diagnosis, our scientists and clinicians have the ability to let a patients’ genome reveal its uniqueness in ways that are both powerful and transformative, especially when it comes to treating disease in a precise and individual manner.
TGen has had an important and highly positive impact in understanding the molecular drivers in cancer and other diseases and disorders, but more importantly, has been among the world’s leaders in applying this knowledge toward the treatment of patients. By strategically aligning ourselves with first-in-class medical providers, TGen provides direct benefit to those patients faced with limited options.
A hallmark of TGen is our belief that by utilizing the latest technologies and collaborating with the strongest of partners, we can develop better tools to increase our understanding of complex diseases and to better predict which treatments might be most effective, i.e., one-of-a-kind clinical trials (the right drug, at the right dose, at the right time).
TGen’s translational approach and our experience at leveraging genomic information in support of achieving more precise and personalized treatments augments your work in ways other institutes cannot. Our affiliation with City of Hope allows you to integrate your work with a growing health system committed to research with highest potential for improvements in patient care. In short, our science-led business-supported approach means there’s no better place to move your research forward. If you’re looking for a job with purpose, you’ll find it at TGen.
TGen is searching for a top-notch, collegial Postdoctoral Research Fellow who is interested in conducting cutting-edge translational research.
The Postdoctoral Research Fellow will explore signaling pathways relevant to drug development and discovery of basic mechanisms of cancer biology and novel therapeutic targets and epigenetic and genetic prognostic biomarkers in cancers. The fellow will be assigned projects and be responsible for designing and performing in vitro and in vivo experiments, collecting and analyzing data, writing grants, publications, and disseminating findings.
Basic education, experience and skills required for consideration:
· PhD in Cancer Biology or Molecular Biology or a related field of study.
· In vivo experience including working with mouse models, transplantation, injection (IP, IV, oral gavage, retro orbital) and flow cytometry analysis is a plus.
· Experienced in conducting research, publishing journal manuscripts, presenting research at conferences, and advanced quantitative data analyses.
· Work collaboratively, supervise the works of others and act as a team leader as required.
· Coordinate work with colleagues at City of Hope Cancer Center, in Duarte, CA and will be required to travel there on occasion for training, performing experiments and presentation of findings.
