Postdoctoral Research Position Available:

A postdoctoral research position is available to investigate the mechanisms of stromal activation in breast cancer funded by a Department of Defense Breakthrough Award. The project utilizes in vivo techniques with transgenic mice harboring fluorescent reporters with the long-term goal of identifying pathways activated in the cancer stroma that can be targeted with specific therapies. Immediate goals for the project include completing the analysis of activated cancer associated fibroblasts in tumors and analyzing specific cell populations by FACS and expression profiling. Experience with mice is essential and experienced scientists with MA degrees will be considered. Candidates must be eligible to start in early August. For more information please contact Matthew Layne, PhD, Department of Biochemistry, mlayne@bu.edu. Include a CV, description of your past research experiences, and names of 3 references.
