Postdoctoral Research Fellow – Brain Tumor Metabolism & Unifying Mechanisms of Diabetes and Cancer

Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center

Dr. Biplab Dasgupta’s laboratory  is looking for a highly motivated, self-driven and ambitious postdoctoral researcher to start this summer/fall in the Division of Oncology. Using genetically engineered mouse models and human tissue, the Dasgupta lab has been engaged in cutting-edge research to understand neural stem cell metabolism, metabolic liabilities of high-grade brain tumors, and energy and nutrient sensing signaling pathways in cancer and normal cells regulated by the AMPK-mTOR pathways. We are also deeply interested in understanding the mechanisms by which non-genetic factors regulate the incidence and penetrance of human cancer. We have published our work in highly visible journals including Science Advances, Cell Reports, Nature Cell Biology, Nature Communications, PNAS, Cancer Cell, Neuro-Oncology, Cancer Research and Trends in Pharmacological Sciences.

Interested applicants must have a PhD and are expected to work on one or both projects. A strong background in biochemistry, molecular biology and signaling and some experience in working with genetically engineered mouse models is essential. Prior experience in bioinformatic analysis of omics data is preferred.

Interested applicants may submit their CV and contact Dr. Dasgupta via email at [email protected] .
