Nanomedicine, Houston Methodist Research Institute

Position ID: 1809-POSTDOCTORAL [#10881]
Position Title: postdoctoral
Position Type: Postdoctoral
Position Location: Houston, Texas 77030, United States
Application Deadline: (posted 2017/09/28, listed until 2018/03/28)
Position Description:    

A postdoctoral position is available in the Department of Nanomedicine at the Houston Methodist Research Institute (HMRI; Houston, Texas). HMRI is part of a multi-hospital system whose flagship hospital is centrally located within the world’s largest medical center, the Texas Medical Center. HMRI is affiliated with Weill Cornell Medical College and the Weill Cornell Graduate School of Medical Sciences of Cornell University.

The successful candidate will join the team of Drs. Mauro Ferrari and Arturas Ziemys, who are pioneering the field of physical oncology and precision medicine for immunotherapies. The successful candidate will engage in multidisciplinary research at the interface of computational sciences, physics, and biology that is dedicated to transport oncophysics of therapeutics to understand the origins of transport-based therapeutic resistance and efficacy of immunotherapies in cancer. The position is funded by a recently awarded U54 Center grant from the National Cancer Institute:
