About the Position

A postdoctoral position is available in the Wu lab at Fox Chase Cancer Center in the field of structural biology and protein biochemistry. Teh Wu lab focuses on structural and mechanistic studies of the signaling events mediated by integrins, small GTPases, and kinases, as well as development of inhibitor and/or drug that target these events. The lab is equipped with state-of-the-art instruments, including a Mosquito robot, a Formulatrix crystal imager, and a brand-new Synergy-S X-ray home source.

We also have frequent beamtimes at BNL and MacChess synchrotrons. The ideal candidate for the position should hold a Ph.D. with strong expertise in X-ray crystallography and are also expected to be experienced in construct design, protein expression and purification. Prior experience in mammalian cell culture, cell signaling, flow cytometry, and cancer biology is desired but not required.

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.
