David Whitmire Hearst, Jr. Foundation Post-doctoral Scholar
A post-doctoral fellow is sought to represent the David Whitmire Hearst Jr. Foundation as its inaugural scholar. The post-doctoral scholar will study in the laboratory of principle investigator Charles Spruck, Ph.D., at the Sanford|Burnham|Prebys Medical Discovery Institute in La Jolla, CA. The host laboratory's research interests include regulation of cell division control, metastasis progression in breast and other cancers, and developing novel cancer therapeutics.
Candidates should have strong background in molecular biology techniques and completed less than 2 years of post-doctoral studies. Interested candidates should send their CV/Biosketch, including a list of three references, to cspruck@SBPdiscovery.org. The best candidates would likely be current graduate students or early-stage post-docs at either the Norris Cancer Center on the medical campus (where Dr. Spruck completed his PhD studies) or the department of Molecular Biology on the main campus.
