Position description

A Postdoctoral Fellow position is available in the Wang lab at Department of Developmental and Cell Biology, University of California, Irvine (https://devcell.bio.uci.edu/faculty/wenqi-wang/) to study the Hippo signaling pathway in organ size control and cancer development.

We are taking advantage of multi-disciplinary approaches including integrated proteomics/bioinformatics analyses, in-depth biochemical studies and sophisticated genetic mouse models to dissect regulation and function of the Hippo pathway in normal physiology and cancer development. Through it, we hope to develop therapeutic approaches by utilizing the Hippo pathway for cancer treatment. We also conduct large-scale proteomics studies exploring various cancer related signaling pathways and protein families with the emphasis on their cross-talk with the Hippo pathway.

We are seeking a highly motivated, independent, and career-oriented candidate with research expertise in molecular biology, biochemistry, cell biology and cancer biology. We prefer candidates who are about to graduate with PhD or MD/PhD degree, or have graduated within the last 12 months. A track record of excellent first author publication(s) is required. The salary and benefit will follow the NIH standard.

To apply, one should submit their curriculum vitae and the contact information via the following recruitment URL: https://recruit.ap.uci.edu/JPF06609
