► WHAT WE OFFER: We offer two postdoctoral positions to work in the project “Therapy of HER2 positive tumors”. The positions (one year, renewable) will be available in Q2 of 2021 and require some previous expertise (see below).
► WHO WE ARE: The project is being carried out at the laboratory of Dr. Atanasio Pandiella at the Cancer Research Center in Salamanca. Our interest is focused on the knowledge of the pathophysiological characteristics of HER2+ tumors, particularly breast tumors. We pay special attention to HER2-directed therapies and the mechanisms of resistance to those therapies. Our list of recent publications can be consulted at: pandiella a - Search Results - PubMed (nih.gov). (Click “Pandiella A” in PubMed, in case the link does not run).
► OUR CENTER: Our Cancer Research Center is located in Salamanca, a small and relatively cheap (150,000 citizens) city, close (200 km) to Madrid. The Center includes all basic facilities to carry out competitive projects, including Genomic, Proteomic, Microscopy, Cytometry and Animal housing facilities.
► WHAT WE LOOK FOR: We look for two motivated postdoctoral researchers to work in the above mentioned project. We are an equal opportunity employment institution. Our laboratory strongly encourages diversity as part of our training efforts and philosophy.
