Cancer molecular Imaging

The Physical Oncology Laboratory in the Department of Radiation Oncology at Stanford University is seeking postdoctoral associates and research scientists who are interested in making a lasting impact through translational cancer research by building novel physical tools and technologies. The lab’s interests revolve around three areas: 

           – Cancer imaging

           – Radiation therapy

           – In vitro and in silico cancer models

Multiple NIH-funded research positions are available immediately within the laboratory. Candidates can apply to this position either as postdoctoral researcher (0-4 years post-PhD) or research scientist (4 or more years post-PhD). At the postdoctoral level, the expected base pay for this position is the Stanford University required minimum for all postdoctoral scholars appointed through the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs. The FY23 minimum is $68,238. At the research scientist level, the salary ranges between $70,000 and $85,000. The pay offered to the selected candidate will be determined based on factors including (but not limited to) the qualifications of the selected candidate, budget availability, and internal equity.

The lab is looking for candidates who are:

           – Passionate about cancer research

           – Interested in cracking difficult problems

           – Knowledgeable and curious

           – Effective at communicating

           – Able to work across disciplines

           – Attentive to details

           – Critical thinkers

           – Committed to integrity in science

The position will involve developing in vitro microphysiological tumor systems (“tumor-on-a-chip”) for translational cancer research. No specific skills are absolute pre-requisites for this for this position, however, we seek candidates who have experence or are interested in learning and mastering one or more of the following skillsets:

Engineering / technology

           – Microfluidics

           – Microscopes

           – Imaging physics

In vitro tumor models

           – 3D organoid models

           – Tumor-on-a-chip

           – Standard wet lab procedures and biological assays

           – Mouse handling

Molecular Imaging / Therapy

           – Radionuclide imaging / radiolabeling

           – Radiation therapy


To apply, please submit a CV and one-page cover letter.
