A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Li Xin in the Department of Urology at the University of Washington. The Xin laboratory uses genetically engineered mouse models, patient samples and primary cell culture etc to study the mechanisms underlying prostate tissue homeostasis and etiology of initiation of benign and malignant tissue outgrowth. Areas of interest in the lab include molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying maintenance of prostate cell lineage hierarchy, the role of inflammation in prostate-related diseases, prostate tumor microenvironment. Interested candidate are encouraged to read our past publications in Cancer Cell, Cell Stem Cell, Molecular Cell, PNAS, JCI etc for more details of our research areas (https://www.washington.edu/urology/people/li-xin-ph-d/).
We seek highly qualified individuals who are self-motivated, flexible, collaborative, detail-oriented, and have the ability to multitask and a commitment to research excellence. The successful candidate should have a PhD degree with a strong background in molecular biology, cell biology, and/or biochemistry. Research experience in flow cytometry, immunology, and animal models would be advantageous.
