Postdoctoral Fellow in Cancer Biology and Clonal Evolution

A main problem in the treatment of advanced cancers is the incertitude at which we predict how individual patients will respond to DNA-damaging agents, especially on the long run. Despite a wealth of genomic information, “more-is-better” and “one-size-fits-all” remain the principles according to which DNA-damaging agents are administered. We seek applications from individuals with a PhD in Cancer Biology, Genetics, Pharmacology or Molecular Biology, to test the potential of the very long-term legacy that DNA-damage entails on a cell – genomic instability – as new biomarker of DNA-damage response. 

This person will be part of a multi-disciplinary team in the Department of Integrated Mathematical Oncology (IMO) at Moffitt. Ideal candidate has experience working with both, in-vitro and in-silico models. This position brings a unique opportunity to work in this multidisciplinary field, in an environment where experimental and computational domains interact to better understand clonal dynamics. It includes funded travel to attend research conferences.
