The collaborative laboratories of Julie Ostrander, Laura Mauro, and Carol Lange at the University of Minnesota Masonic Cancer Center are seeking highly motivated Postdoctoral Fellows in the field of hormone action and signal transduction in breast and ovarian cancer. Our collaborative research team is focused on the role of steroid hormone receptors (SRs) and their key co-activators in breast and ovarian cancers. A major focus of our laboratories is defining novel SR actions within the cancer context. Specifically, the role of post-translational modifications (PTMs) to SRs and their binding partners in response to stress-activated protein kinases and other oncogenic signaling pathways activated in hormone-driven cancers. Our overarching research goal is to understand how SR+ cancers progress to advanced stages that escape endocrine or other molecular targeted therapies that primarily target proliferating cells. Download detailed listing.
Required: Ph.D. in biomedical sciences as well as experience working on signaling proteins, including transcription factors, NRs, and other closely related molecules and associated signaling pathways. We are committed to a diverse workforce. The applicant should have outstanding (oral) presentation and English writing skills.
Please send letter of interest and CV with list of references to: Julie Ostrander, PhD and Carol Lange, PhD at Email: Lange047@umn.edu
