Job Summary 
A post-doctoral position is available in a dynamic research laboratory in the Department of Radiology at Michigan Medicine of the University of Michigan. Our laboratory is led by Dr. Stefanie Galban, and is surrounded by a rich research environment at the Center for Molecular Imaging (CMI) and the Rogel Cancer Center. The mission of the group involves establishing and developing mouse models of various malignancies recapitulating human disease to develop novel therapies, including gene therapy and imaging technologies. Our goal is to motivate and train postdoctoral fellows across disciples to address new and challenging problems in cancer and develop novel therapies. Ongoing projects include investigating the mechanisms of molecularly targeted and immune-based therapies utilizing imaging in cell culture and mouse models. Our research is especially focused on developing mouse models for lung disease. These studies are performed in a highly collaborative research environment with leading experts in oncology and imaging, as well as industrial partners. Our team seeks a post-doctoral researcher to join efforts in accomplishing these goals with at least two years of availability and with the appointment to commence in the beginning of August 2019.
