Mechanisms of Radiation Resistance in Prostate and Bladder Cancers

National Cancer Institute, Bethesda, MD and surrounding area

A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Deborah Citrin, in the Radiation Oncology Branch of the NCI. Major projects in the laboratory focus on the identification of molecules involved in determining cell/tissue radioresponse and the development of target-based therapies.  Opportunities are available for using a variety of genetic and molecular biology approaches to delineate the molecules/processes that regulate cellular radiosensitivity.  Studies will also involve translating fundamental information relating to molecular radioresponse to strategies aimed at increasing the sensitivity of tumor cells.

Applicants must have obtained a Ph.D. degree within the last 3 years.

 A CV and the names and contact information for references (at least 3) should be submitted to Dr. Deborah Citrin, citrind@mail.nih.gov.

This position is subject to a background investigation. 
The NIH is dedicated to building a diverse community in its training and employment programs.
