The Rink Laboratory at the Fox Chase Cancer Center is hiring an ambitious and self-motivated Postdoctoral Fellow to understand the mechanisms of resistance to small molecule inhibitors in Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumors (GIST) through both basic and translational studies. The goal of this laboratory is to translate these findings into novel treatments for GIST. The laboratory uses state-of-the-art technologies and collaborations with leading scientists and clinicians. Some examples of publications addressing these areas of interest are: Ye et al. (2021) JCI Insight; Zook et al. (2017) Clinical Cancer Research; Von Mehren et al. (2020) Clinical Cancer Research; Kozinova et al. (2021) Cancers. Additional details regarding the laboratory research can be found at https://www.foxchase.org/lori-rink.

About the Training Environment

As one of the four original cancer centers to receive comprehensive designation from the National Cancer Institute, Fox Chase Cancer Center has been at the forefront of cancer research for almost 90 years. We are home to excellent research facilities, top clinicians and scientists, and outstanding patient care. Our singular focus on cancer, which couples discovery science with state of the art clinical care and population health, remains the foundation of our work.

The scientist training programs at Fox Chase Cancer Center provide professional development opportunities in four core areas identified as crucial for successful careers in science, research, and health care including communicationleadershipteaching, and mentorship. Upon joining the program, graduate students and postdocs develop individual development plans to help guide their growth. Training throughout the year is supplemented with free professional development opportunities, including a robust ‘How To’ series, writing courses, networking, mentorship, and teaching opportunities, a trainee-led seminar series, a trainee-led annual Research Conference, and more. Postdocs at Fox Chase Cancer Center are supported by the Temple University Postdoc Association and the Office of Academic Affairs at Fox Chase, and are compensated with competitive pay and benefits.

In addition to the robust training program, scientists at Fox Chase Cancer Center benefit from being part of the rich scientific and biotech environment in the Philadelphia region. Many of our former trainees are now employees (and contacts) at nearby institutions and companies, including The Wistar Institute, Merck, GSK, AACR, and numerous others.
