Postdoctoral Researcher – Tumor Microenvironment and Metastasis
The Skobe Laboratory at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City has an immediate opening for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow to study the influence of microenvironment on metastatic progression and response to therapy. Research projects in the lab address two broad areas of interest: (1) understanding the factors within tumor microenvironment which control metastasis and (2) understanding the molecular mechanisms which control lymphangiogenesis and lymphatic function. The position requires a PhD in biomedical sciences. We are seeking a highly motivated individual with background in cell and molecular biology. Strong oral and written communication skills are expected.
