Postdocs in the Moding Lab receive training and experience in preclinical and translational cancer research. The Moding Lab analyzes human samples using a combination of state-of the-art computational and experimental techniques to identify critical mediators of treatment resistance that can be validated in preclinical models and targeted to enhance the efficacy of cancer therapy. Our ultimate goal is to translate our findings to the clinic to improve the outcomes of patients with cancer. We are currently seeking a postdoctoral fellow with wet lab experience to establish cell line and genetically engineered mouse models for functional validation, mechanistic experiments, and testing novel therapies. Postdocs will also gain experience with genomic and transcriptomic analyses of human samples, including circulating tumor DNA analysis. We are a growing, supportive, and inclusive research group whose top priority is the success of our trainees. Postdocs will have robust opportunities to perform interdisciplinary research, apply for research funding, and establish a network of connections across diverse fields.

About Stanford University
Located between San Francisco and San Jose in the heart of Silicon Valley, Stanford University is recognized as one of the world's leading research and teaching institutions. Leland and Jane Stanford founded the University to "promote the public welfare by exercising an influence on behalf of humanity and civilization." Stanford opened its doors in 1891, and more than a century later, it remains dedicated to finding solutions to the great challenges of the day and to preparing students for leadership in a complex world. The University's thriving diverse community is comprised of nearly 7000 undergraduate students, 12000 graduate students, 2000 faculty members, 1900 postdoctoral scholars, and over 11,000 academic and administrative staff in seven schools including several interdisciplinary research centers and institutes. The campus spreads over 8000 contiguous acres and nearly all undergraduates live on campus. Stanford offers bachelor's and master's degrees in addition to doctoral degrees (PhD, MD, DMA and JD) plus a number of professional and continuing education programs and certifications.
