JOB DESCRIPTION AND POSITION REQUIREMENTS:

A postdoctoral position is available in the molecular and cellular cancer biology laboratory of Dr. Wei Li in the Department of Pediatrics at Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine located at Hershey, Pennsylvania.

The goal of our research is to find molecular targets and biomarkers for cancer therapy. We integrate molecular, cellular, and biochemical approaches in combination with mouse tumorigenesis models. Currently, one of our major focuses is studying the impact of immune cells on  tumor microenvironment in glioma malignant transformation. For more information of Dr. Li’s laboratory, please refer to: https://sites.psu.edu/weililab/ .

We are looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher with strong interests in the molecular basis of cancer. The candidate should have strong research experience in biochemistry, molecular and cellular biology. A background in immunology, mouse models of cancer, especially brain tumors, or neural development, is preferred. Successful applicants should have a recent PhD or MD degree and are expected to have a strong work ethic, excellent organizational and communication skills, and critical thinking abilities. Please apply here and send your CV, statement of research interest, expected availability date along with contact information for three references (including previous advisers) to the e-mail address: weili@pennstatehealth.psu.edu
