Current Opportunities at Vanderbilt

Postdoctoral Fellow - Cancer Microbiome

Department Medicine: Gastroenterology
Full Description

We have an immediate opening for a postdoctoral fellowship in the Markham Lab. The project opportunities extend from recent work identifying C. difficile as a component of the human colorectal cancer microenvironment. (Drewes, Chen, Markham, et al. 2022 Cancer Discovery). Our investigations examine the role of C. difficile toxins using mouse models of colonic neoplasia and human 3D organoids. Individuals with expertise in mouse modeling, tissue culture, and high-resolution microscopy are particularly desired. Familiarity with modern methods of high-dimensional computational analysis for multiplex spatial data are desirable. Experience working in teams and the ability to apply independent management skills are important. Long-term funding is secure, along with a highly competitive salary and fringe benefits.
