A postdoctoral fellow position is available immediately in the laboratory of Dr. Sumin Kang, Emory University School of Medicine, Department of Hematology and Medical Oncology, Winship Cancer Institute. We are looking for highly motivated scientists to investigate the role of protein kinase and metabolic signaling in tumorigenesis and tumor metastasis of human cancers. Our research focuses on translational and preclinical studies on human cancers using approaches including phospho-proteomics, metabolomics, murine models of human cancers and drug development, with ultimate goals to develop molecular targeted therapeutic strategies to treat human cancers.
