Available Postdoctoral Position Details
Posted: 1/18/2015
A postdoctoral position is available immediately to investigate tissue biomarkers in pancreatic cancer using proteomic and genomic technology. These projects will include assistance with collection and processing of human tissue specimens, tissue RNA and protein as well as the use of proteomics and gene microarray. In addition, immunohistochemical studies will also be performed. This position will be in combination with Dr. John Phay in the study of the molecular mechanisms of increased glucose metabolism in malignancy. Interested applicants should send a CV to
