A postdoctoral position is available at Pennsylvania State University to work at the interface of cancer cell biology, genetic engineering and evolutionary dynamics, under the supervision of Marco Archetti and Justin Pritchard. We study interactions among cancer cells using a combination of theory and experiments, as part of a larger initiative at Penn State to study the evolution of resistance to therapies. Ideal candidates will have a Ph.D in Biology and experience in genetic engineering, in particular knowledge of methods based on CRISPR for the generation of KO cell lines and for large-scale screenings. Experience with primary cells and mouse xenografts is a plus. This is a fixed-term appointment funded for one year from date of hire, with excellent possibility of refunding. If you are interested, applications must be submitted electronically and include a cover letter and a CV (including names of referees). For further information please email Dr. Archetti at Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.
