■Funding opportunities:

1.New! AACR: Scientific Achievement Awards and Lectureships
The esteemed AACR Scientific Achievement Awards Program honors researchers through 19 prestigious awards for their global impact on cancer research. They encourage scientists who are now or have been affiliated with any cancer research institution to nominate a deserving colleague. Nominations for the award program are now open.

■Job opportunities:

1.Postdoctoral Position in Cancer Biology
Thomas Jefferson University invites applications for a postdoctoral position in the lab of Drs. Jordan Winter and Jonathan Brody. The project is funded and aims to pancreatic cancer metabolism, with a translational focus. They are looking for a motivated and hardworking researcher, an ability to work independently, and a strong commitment to scientific research at the highest level. Candidates should have rich experience in cancer biology. Expertise in mouse models and pharmacology is beneficial. The project is best suited for a candidate interested in a multi-year experience. The Kimmel Cancer Center at TJU is an NCI designated cancer center with state-of-the-art resources and core facilities. There will be extensive exposure to clinicians. Candidates should have a PhD degree or equivalent. Send curriculum, summary of near-term research goals, and contact information to:
Jordan M. Winter
Associate Professor of Surgery
Co-Director of the Thomas Jefferson Pancreas, Biliary, and Related Cancers Center

Brenden-Colson Center Fellowship

2.The Brenden-Colson Center for Pancreatic Care at Oregon Health & Science University is sponsoring a new fellowship to train early stage investigators for a career in research related to the biology, diagnosis, or therapy of hereditary, inflammatory or malignant pancreatic disease. The goal of this program is to assist in launching new careers, or new research directions, to advance the understanding of pancreatic biology, disease, and/or therapy.

3.Postdoc Position at Moffitt Cancer Center
The laboratory of Gina DeNicola at the Moffitt Cancer Center is seeking postdoc candidates, starting June 1st or later, to investigate metabolic deregulation and dependencies during tumorigenesis in pancreatic cancer. The lab has recently described the role of the NRF2 transcription factor in the regulation of the serine biosynthesis pathway (PMID: 26482881). Current work focuses on how NRF2 activation deregulates cellular metabolism and confers unique metabolic requirements for proliferation. Genetically engineered mouse models are used to examine how the complex metabolic microenvironment of tumors modifies metabolic dependencies. Candidates must have enthusiasm for cancer metabolism, the ability to work as part of a collaborative team, be able to multi-task, and demonstrate excellent communication skills. Candidates should have a recent PhD or MD/PhD degree and experience in cancer metabolism and/or mouse tumor models. Experience with technologies including metabolomics, protein analysis (western, IP, IHC), PCR (genotyping & real-time expression), flow cytometry, cell culture and animal models is highly desirable. Interested applicants should send a letter describing their interest and previous experience as well as a CV including the names and contact information of 3 references to このメールアドレスはスパムボットから保護されています。閲覧するにはJavaScriptを有効にする必要があります。.
