Are you a highly motivated, experienced researcher looking for post-doc opportunities? Oregon Health & Science Universitys Knight Cancer Institute has newly created Postdoctoral Fellowship positions available in its Center for Early Detection Research (CEDR), working alongside Dr. Sadik Esener and other Knight Cancer Institute scientists to develop and execute major scientific project initiatives in the lab.
The CEDR research program is looking for expertise in technology or assay development, particularly in liquid biopsies and detection of circulating nucleotides, exosomes, and proteins. We are also looking for scientists who understand the mechanisms of disease progression from pre-malignancy to metastasis. Our goal is to rapidly develop novel assays, techniques, tests, and treatments through clinical trials or through corporate collaboration or creation of new companies.
The OHSU Knight Cancer Institute, CEDR, and the OHSU School of Medicine are highly collaborative, interdisciplinary, and highly translational environments, and these positions provide opportunities to work alongside a diverse team of highly respected scientists with diverse academic and industry backgrounds.
CEDR scientists work in funded project teams to identify priorities and projects, and internal funding is milestone driven. Project ideas and leadership can come from any level, including postdoctoral fellows. All CEDR assets are shared, including equipment, space, resources, and workload. We have a unique approach to the way we work, because we are looking for unique solutions to end cancer as we know it.
