MD Anderson Cancer Center Foundation is offering a postdoctoral research position to a well-qualified, highly motivated and dynamic young scientist who wishes to enhance his/her scientific career in a Patient Centered Research environment.

The position is granted for the Hematological Neoplasms Group, leaded by Dr. Juan F. García.

Main research lines are based on:

  • Identification of lymphomagenesis mechanisms, especially in Hodgkin's lymphoma and other aggressive non-Hodgkin's lymphomas (diffuse large B-cell lymphomas and T-cell lymphomas).
  • Identification and validation of functional phenotypes from the Tumor Microenvironment: the contributions of elements of the microenvironment to lymphoma proliferation, survival and immune escape.
  • Molecular alterations of prognostic and predictive value.

Candidates must have a recent PhD related to Life Sciences fields (Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Biomedicine…) and experience with research projects on Translational Onco-hematology.

Required skills and expertise in cancer translational research:

  • Basic immune and molecular techniques (PCR, Q-PCR, ELISA, WB, …).
  • Cellular and Molecular Biology, functional models with human cell cultures (normal patient-derived cells and continuous/cancer cell lines), 3D-culturesand optimization of patient-derived organoids.
  • Genomics and transcriptomics methods (NGS, in-house developed targeted panels, Nanostring, RNA-seq,…).
  • Statistics software (SPSS, GraphPad Prism, …), data and digital analyses with R packages and common bioinformatics tools.
  • Intelligence and autonomy for innovative research designs development.

Terms of employment:

  • The position is granted by the Fundación MD Anderson Cancer Center Spain.
  • The contract offered is for one year and can be extended for a further one until competitive financing is found. The objective of this proposal is to be able to start an independent research line.
  • Competitive remuneration according to experience and qualification.
  • Immediate incorporation.
