A post-doctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Everardo Macias in The Department of Pathology and Duke Cancer Institute GU Oncology group. The post-doctoral fellow will work independently under the general guidance of the PI to make significant and creative contributions to basic and translational research related to prostate cancer. Our goal to train a motivated post-doctoral associate for success by providing the leadership, scientific writing, and experimental skills necessary to excel in a scientific career in industry or academia. Collaboration is expected with other post-doctoral fellows, research support staff and lab members. The fellow will develop studies related to potential prostate cancer therapeutic targets identified by an in vivo functional genomic screen. Mechanistic studies will be conducted in vitro, in vivo and with human primary tissues ex-vivo to define mechanisms of action. Secondly, the postdoctoral associate will identify and validate chemical probes/inhibitors against candidate targets. This project will interact with basic scientists, oncologists, medicinal chemists, bioinformaticians, pathologists, and other researchers in a highly collaborative environment. Experience in standard molecular biology techniques as well as experience with in vivo mouse models is preferred. The ideal candidate will also have the ability to undertake basic analyses of bioinformatic data sets or an interest to begin to learn such approaches such as RNA-Seq or ChIP-Seq.

Requirements: Applicants must have a PhD (or equivalent) and preference will be given to those who have a solid background in molecular biology, cancer biology, genomics and in vivo mouse models.
