Postdoctoral Fellow and Research Technician Positions Available
(for 2021 start)
The Brock Lab is seeking a Postdoctoral Fellow who has recently earned, or is nearing completion of, a PhD in cellular/molecular biology, systems biology, or a related field. The successful applicant will contribute to an NIH-funded project to examine the heterogeneity of therapeutic response and resistance in triple negative breast cancer.
Candidates should have expertise in molecular and cellular biology, outstanding problem-solving and communication skills, and enthusiasm for working as part of a diverse team. The successful applicant will become a member of a highly collaborative, multi-disciplinary group with opportunities to work closely with mathematical modelers at the Center for Computational Oncology within the Oden Institute for Computational and Engineering Sciences and with clinicians at the Dell Medical School, University of Texas at Austin.
The lab also has a position available for a Research Technician. BS in cell molecular biology and experience in recombinant DNA technology is required. Candidates should have excellent organizational and communication skills and enthusiasm for working as part of a diverse team.
To apply, please send 1) a description of your scientific interests and goals for this position, 2) CV, and 3) contact information of three references. Submit your application to Amy Brock at email@example.com. Applications from women and minorities are strongly encouraged.
Our lab can accept doctoral students who have been admitted into the Department of Biomedical Engineering or the Cell and Molecular Biology graduate program at the University of Texas at Austin. You should apply to the program which most closely aligns with your undergraduate preparation. Graduate positions are fully funded by research and teaching fellowships; graduate students generally serve as TA's for 1-2 academic semesters as part of their degree requirements.
All of the projects in our lab integrate experimental wet lab studies and computational analysis/modeling. Individuals with interests in tumor biology, molecular cell biology, bioengineering, synthetic and systems biology, as well as those with a background in mathematics and modeling may be well-positioned to contribute. Regardless of specific field, we're always happy to hear from creative and enthusiastic problem solvers.
If you are interested in discussing a rotation in the lab, please email Dr. Brock with your CV and a brief description of how our lab fits into your training and scientific goals.
