A postdoctoral position is available in the Department of Nanomedicine at the Houston Methodist Research Institute (HMRI; Houston, Texas). HMRI is part of a multi-hospital system whose flagship hospital is centrally located within the world’s largest medical center, the Texas Medical Center. HMRI is affiliated with Weill Cornell Medical College and the Weill Cornell Graduate School of Medical Sciences of Cornell University.
The successful candidate will join the team of Drs. Mauro Ferrari and Arturas Ziemys to work in the field of physical oncology. The successful candidate will engage in multidisciplinary research at the interface of computational sciences, physics, and biology that is dedicated to transport oncophysics of therapeutics to understand the origins of transport-based therapeutic resistance and efficacy of immunotherapies in cancer. The position is funded by a recently awarded U54 Center grant from the National Cancer Institute: http://physics.cancer.gov/network/HoustonMethodistResearchInstitute.aspx
This position will enable the postdoctoral fellow opportunities to actively collaborate and network with researchers in HMRI, the NCI Physical Sciences-Oncology Network, Texas Medical Center, and other institutions.
The ideal candidate is expected to have background in computational methods, physics, mathematics, or computational analysis with first-author publications. Recent PhD graduates are encouraged to apply. Candidates should have obtained their PhDs prior to joining our group and should have good oral and written communication skills in English. Interested individuals should send their letter of interest, their CVs containing research experience, the list of their publications, and the list of at least three references in a single PDF document to: email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org.
