Assistant Professor on the Research Track, Research in the Slingerland Laboratory at Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center
Georgetown University: Medical Center: School of Medicine: Oncology

Location: New Research Building 2nd Floor
Open Date: Aug 22, 2023
Deadline: Oct 01, 2023 at 11:59 PM Eastern Time

An Assistant Professor on the Research Track is available in the Slingerland/Jacobs laboratory. Research in our labs investigates cell cycle regulation and PI3K signaling, and recently identified novel pro-oncogenic roles of p27 in transcriptional regulation and epigenetics. We also investigate the mechanisms whereby different estrogens interact with the estrogen receptor and NFKB pathways to mediate mechanisms underlying the greater risk and adverse outcomes of breast and other cancers in the context of obesity. The successful applicant will also engage in research on other projects investigating how estrogen receptor and NFKB pathways interact to link estrogens, obesity, inflammation, and loss of anticancer immunity, with a focus on NK cells, using both in vitro immunologic assays and in vivo mouse models of cancer and anticancer immunity.

Projects require discretion and judgment in research activities within project scope and methodologies. This position requires in-depth knowledge of molecular biology, protocol/ method development, organizing and implementing complex research plans, analysis of data, and writing manuscripts for publication of findings. The successful applicant will also assist the PIs in monitoring and adhering to funding budgets. The Assistant Professor will assist the Principle Investigators to conduct research per Georgetown policies and procedures.

The Minimum Qualifications: Ph.D and/ or. MD and at least 10 years of research experience in a relevant field of cellular and molecular research. Candidates must possess:
  • Broad knowledge of cancer research and experience in human cell/tissue culture, molecular biological techniques, experience with mouse models of cancer and/or other disease states and intravital microscopy
  • Prior experience in epigenetics/bioinformatics is desirable but not required.
  • Ability to plan, organize and meet deadlines is required
  • Must be highly motivated and detail oriented
  • Excellent communication skills (verbal and written), and ability to collaborate with others.
  • Ability to successfully manage multiple tasks simultaneously and independently.
  • Demonstrate problem solving skills.

The identified candidate will be encouraged to write grants supporting the lines of research under investigation by the host laboratory.
