Job Description

Post-Doctoral Position, Henske Lab, Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC) and Chromophobe Kidney Cancer
Harvard Medical School/Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston MA

We invite outstanding candidates to apply for a postdoctoral position in basic and translational biology focused on tuberous sclerosis complex cancer genetics and cancer metabolism.

The Henske Lab investigates the genetic, cellular, and molecular mechanisms underlying tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC), a tumor suppressor gene syndrome that causes benign tumors in many organs including the brain, kidney, skin, and lung, and chromophobe kidney cancer, a rare subtype associated with aberrant mitochondria. Our approaches include biochemistry, cell biology, mouse genetics, human genetics and preclinical testing of candidate therapeutic strategies in mouse models. Several exciting projects are available depending on the interests of the candidate. We have a great lab environment with many collaborations and opportunities to use state-of-the art approaches.
