Summary

Postdoctoral Fellow in Malignant Hematology

The Padron Lab studies the molecular pathogenesis of Chronic Myelomonocytic Leukemia (CMML) with the goal of identifying novel therapeutic vulnerabilities. CMML is a rare and lethal hematopoietic malignancy characterized by a characteristic classical monocytosis and a propensity to transform to Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). Interestingly, the majority of CMML patients present in a clinically asymptomatic state for periods of weeks to months before progressing to a lethal disease that clinically manifests via a heterogenous group of symptoms. There are no FDA approved therapies that have been demonstrated to alter the natural history of disease and the goal of our laboratory is to provide the preclinical evidence to increase the armamentarium available to clinicians treating this disease. Although our focus is centrally on CMML, our work aims to address questions in the field that can be more broadly applicable to other types of leukemias and cancers.

 

Position Highlights:

  • The candidate will gain experience in preclinical and translational research in hematologic oncology.
  • The candidate will have the opportunity to test novel treatments for leukemia in mouse models and work with a collaborative team comprised of clinicians, cancer biologists and computational biologists.
  • Moffitt integrates excellent patient care with cutting-edge clinical and basic research. Having a cancer hospital on-site provides unique opportunities for translational research.
  • Outstanding mentorship from expert faculty with wide-ranging funded research programs including T32 Training Grants.
  • You will be encouraged and supported to apply for training grants.

 

The Ideal Candidate:

  • Candidates must be experienced in molecular biology and cell biology techniques including mammalian cell culture, qPCR, western blotting, DNA/RNA manipulation
  • Must be well-organized and detail-oriented with the ability to maintain accurate records
  • Must have a strong work ethic and desire to drive projects independently
  • Experience with mouse models of cancer and flow cytometry is highly desirable

Responsibilities:

  • Design and execute experiments; analyze and interpret data
  • Work independently as well as part of a collaborative team
  • Present research findings in lab meetings, conferences and journal publications

 

Credentials and Qualifications:

 

  • Ph.D or MD/Ph.D in biology, biochemistry, molecular biology, or a related field.
  • Should have at least one first author publication.
