Position Summary
The postdoctoral fellow in the laboratory of Sukyung Woo will be
involved in multidisciplinary, collaborative projects investigating
mechanisms underlying drug resistance and metastasis in tumor
microenvironment and developing anticancer therapeutic strategies. We
are particularly interested in therapeutic strategies to modulate
target genes or proteins, including siRNA and PROTAC. This position
requires performing experimental studies using in vitro and in vivo
systems to describe and predict pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamic
responses of the therapeutics as single agents or in combination with
chemotherapy, targeted therapy, and immunotherapy, with the aim of
facilitating translational research and drug development in oncology.
The Woo laboratory utilizes a computational mathematical modeling
approach combined with experimental data to integrate in vitro and in
vivo information and to facilitate preclinical-to-clinical
Position responsibilities:
Evaluate dose-response relationships using cell lines and
preclinical animal models
Perform experiments related to basic molecular/cell biology
Develop and perform in vitro assays to quantify therapy-induced
Generate genetically-modified cell lines to elucidate molecular
Write scientific manuscripts, reports and research proposals
Present scientific findings to national meetings.
Good communication/organization skills with the ability to work in
collaborative environment are essential. Familiarity or prior hands-on
experience in experimental techniques such as molecular and cellular
biology, tissue culture, and antitumor activity evaluation in rodents
is highly desired. The successful candidate will acquire experience in
animal-to-human translational research, including early phase clinical
trials. Individuals who want to expand their knowledge into
pharmaceutical sciences, computational modeling, and quantitative
systems pharmacology to depict and predict responses of solid tumors
to anticancer agents are highly encouraged to apply.
