About the Position
The Pharmaceutical Science division of the UC Winkle College of Pharmacy is accepting applications for a Postdoctoral position to pursue basic and translational cancer research.
The selected postdoctoral fellow will focus on understanding the fundamental principles of cancer-associated fibroblasts and the tumor microenvironment in targeted therapy and immunotherapy and determining the molecular, cellular, and transcriptional mechanisms underlying the complex interactions among cancer cells, cancer-associated fibroblasts, therapeutical agents, and the microenvironment.
