Postdoctoral Associate

Position Summary

A Postdoctoral Associate position is available in the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University at Buffalo. The postdoctoral fellow will be involved in multidisciplinary, collaborative projects investigating mechanisms underlying drug resistance and metastasis in tumor microenvironment. This position requires performing experimental studies using in vitro and in vivo systems to describe and predict pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamic responses of various therapeutic agents, including chemotherapy, targeted therapy, and immunotherapy, with the aim of facilitating translational research and drug development in oncology.

Position responsibilities:
• Evaluate dose-response relationships using cell lines and preclinical animal models
• Perform experiments related to basic molecular/cell biology
• Develop and perform in vitro assays to quantify therapy-induced responses
• Generate genetically-modified cell lines to elucidate molecular mechanisms
• Write scientific manuscripts, reports and research proposals
• Present scientific findings to national meetings.
