Job Description

A postdoctoral researcher position is available immediately in the Children’s Brain Tumor Project (CBTP) laboratory at Cornell University-Weill Cornell Medicine in the Department of Neurological Surgery to study preclinical therapeutic delivery strategies. Using various drug delivery approaches including convection-enhanced delivery (CED), intra-arterial delivery, and focused ultrasound candidate therapeutic agents are assayed using animal models. Neuro-imaging and tissue/cellular-based assays are used to define distribution, bioavailability, drug pharmacokinetics, and cell viability. Collaborative efforts currently exist for molecular imaging based on radio-nuclide and fluorophore drug labelling. (e.g. Kossatz et al. Cancer Research 2017; Wang et al. Molecular Cancer Therapeutics 2017; Komidi et al. ACS Med Chem Lett 2018)
We seek enthusiastic, highly qualified and motivated individuals to join our research group. The successful candidate should have a Ph.D. degree with a strong background in medical bioengineering, biotechnology, and/or biochemistry. Research experience in neuro-oncology, cancer biology and molecular imaging would be considered advantageous.
Our laboratory is located on the Weill Cornell Medicine campus in New York City.
Please submit your CV, a cover letter outlining your research interests, career goals and the names of three referees with contact information.
