Emory University is a leading research university that fosters excellence and attracts world-class talent to innovate today and prepare leaders for the future. We welcome candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of our academic community.
This is a recruitment of the Department of Pharmacology and Chemical Biology at Emory University School of Medicine for an Instructor who has demonstrated strong expertise in cancer biology, particularly mouse model and therapeutics.
Your primary responsibility is to focus on the research projects that investigate the role of post-translational modifications (e.g., ubiquitin-proteasome, protein glycosylation, protein methylation) in tumor immunology, oncogenic signaling network and anti-breast cancer therapy and develop the next generation of impactful treatment strategies for cancer treatment. It is anticipated that the candidate will, under Dr. Wan’s supervision, expand your research to develop collaboration with other Faculty in the Department, across Winship and the University with a focus on translating breast cancer research from bench to bedside and back.
The candidate will participate academic research activities at both Department of Pharmacology and Chemical Biology and Winship Cancer Center. This candidate will participate in supervision of student, junior post-doc and medical fellow and some lab organization. The new recruit will directly report to Dr. Yong Wan, Research Director of Glenn Family Breast Center and Professor of Department of Pharmacology and Chemical Biology.
