The Sorensen laboratory is seeking a highly-motivated postdoctoral fellow with leadership ability and a strong background in one or more of the following fields, namely molecular biology, immunology, and mouse modeling studies. Expertise in bioinformatics analysis is a definite asset. This is a full-time position under the supervision of Dr. Poul Sorensen at the British Columbia Cancer Research Institute in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia, part of the University of British Columbia, a consistent top 40 worldwide university. The work focuses on functional characterization of pathways involved in tumor cell adaptation to diverse stresses of the tumor microenvironment (TME), including metabolic stress, and how such adaptation leads to disease progression, in high-risk childhood cancers (e.g. PMIDs: 34021002; 35365367; 37611092; 25965573; 31668005; 33908607; 32406909; 25800057). The goal is to use this information to identify and implement novel therapies, including immunotherapeutic targets, for the treatment of these diseases, including Ewing sarcoma, osteosarcoma, neuroblastoma, and CNS tumors.
