The Caino lab in the Department of Pharmacology has an opening for a full-time Postdoctoral Fellow to join our team
Available projects include studies on the role of mitochondria shape, number and subcellular distribution in tumor cell invasion and metastatic dissemination (see Caino et al, PNAS 2015 Jul 14;112(28):8638-43; Caino et al, Nat Commun. 2016 Dec 19;7:13730).
Alternatively, the postdoctoral fellow may work on understanding the role of the Intergrated Stress response (ISR) as a sensor of mitochondrial homeostasis and target for metastatic disease. See recent publications from our lab: Furnish et al, Mol Cancer Res. 2022 Jan 6. doi: 10.1158/1541-7786;Ghosh et al, PNAS. 2022 Feb 22;119(8):e2115624119).
Research will involve biochemistry, molecular biology and cellular biology experimental procedures, high-throughput loss-of-function screenings and work with animal models of cancer and metastatic dissemination.
