Post-doc and Staff Position Opening in Green Lab

A postdoctoral fellowship and staff scientist position is available immediately in the Green lab at Dept. of Radiation Oncology, University of Michigan. The lab’s major focus is on defining and harnessing the determinants of inflammation which shape anti-tumoral immunity and influence cancer therapy efficacy with an emphasis on radiation, DNA damage, and translation of preclinical research to clinical trials. More specifically, the lab explores mechanistically how lipid oxidation and ferroptosis regulate therapy efficacy (Lang et at Cancer Discovery 2019 Dec;9(12):1673-1685), how the DNA damage response can be targeted to enhance cancer therapy efficacy (Zhang et al Mol Cell. 2016 , and how site of metastatic involvement regulates antitumor immunity (Yu et al, Nature Medicine, 27(1):152-164, 2021).

Future projects in the lab engage the use of molecular biology and genetic approaches, cell culture techniques, mouse modeling, and analysis of patient samples. Therefore, energetic applicants with strong experimental background in molecular and cellular biology and/or immunology are encouraged to apply.

Interested applicants should send CV and cover letter to migr@med.umich.edu
