Research Fellow - Medical Oncology

Position description
A postdoctoral position is available in the Billadeau lab. The laboratory uses molecular, biochemical, animal models, and imaging approaches to understand the regulation of receptor trafficking. This position will be funded through a recently awarded NIH grant with the goals to perform experiments aimed at elucidating the function of phosphoinositides and small GTP-binding proteins on WASH-regulated receptor trafficking. In particular, the goals of the application are to gain molecular insight into how WASH and FAM21 bind phosphoinositides, and the mechanisms by which the CCC complex regulates vesicular trafficking through the recruitment and activation of Rab GTPases at WASH-containing endosomal subdomains. The postdoctoral fellow will work in a dynamic research environment with generous support and access to cutting-edge core facilities. Expertise in cell and molecular biology, biochemistry and high-resolution imaging would be a plus. Candidates should have a Ph.D., M.D. or M.D./Ph.D. degree granted within the past 2 years, with a strong record of research experience and productivity.

A Research Fellow at Mayo Clinic is a temporary position intended to provide training and education in research. Individuals will train in the research program of a Mayo Clinic principal investigator. Qualified individuals will demonstrate the potential for research as evidenced by their training and peer-reviewed publications and should become competitive for national research grants. Proof of English proficiency is required for J-1 Short-Term Scholars, Research Scholars, Professors, Specialists, and Student Interns sponsored by Mayo Clinic.

The following is required for completeness of application:
  • Current curriculum vitae with bibliography
  • Proof of doctoral degree (copy of diploma or final transcript with English translation, if applicable) or a letter from your university's Registrar office indicating you have fulfilled all doctoral program requirements and are eligible to graduate.
Please also be prepared that you may be asked to provide three letters of recommendation to the hiring PI prior to an interview.
Must have a Ph.D., M.D., or equivalent doctoral degree in a field deemed relevant by the program. Research Fellow is appropriate for individuals who have completed no more than one prior postdoctoral fellowship, at Mayo Clinic or elsewhere.
