National Human Genome Research Institute, Bethesda, MD and surrounding area

A postdoctoral position is available in the Metastasis Genetics Section, Cancer Genetics Branch of the National Human Genome Research Institute, Bethesda MD. My laboratory focuses on the influence of germline variation upon tumor dissemination in prostate and breast cancer. Specifically, we use complex trait genetics, in addition to various types of molecular analyses, to identify susceptibility genes for more aggressive forms of cancer.
The successful candidate will be involved in various quantitative trait locus (QTL) mapping experiments using mouse models of prostate cancer to identify genes associated with more aggressive disease forms. The overall aim of these experiments is to utilize the power of mouse models to define clinically-relevant genes that can improve our ability to identify men at risk of aggressive disease development at the time of diagnosis. In addition to QTL mapping, the successful candidate should have expertise and interest in the development of mouse models of human disease, genomics and bioinformatics.

Candidates must have an M.D. and/or Ph.D. degree awarded within the past 3 years and a record of peer-reviewed publications. Experience of working with mice or other rodent models is essential.

Applications for this position are ongoing with a rolling deadline. Motivated candidates who wish to join a group of enthusiastic scientists are requested to e-mail CV, a brief statement of research interests, and the names of three references to:

Dr. Nigel Crawford
