A CPRIT (Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas)-funded postdoctoral fellow
position focused on studying the neural mechanisms underlying cancer pain is available in the
laboratory of Dr. Seungwon (Sebastian) Choi in the Psychiatry Department Neuroscience
Division at UT Southwestern Medical Center.
Working as a team member of the lab and with generous support from a CPRIT grant, the
successful candidate will utilize mouse genetic tools in conjunction with anatomical,
physiological, and behavioral approaches to understand the neurobiological mechanisms
underlying cancer pain. This position provides an excellent opportunity for individuals who have
cancer biology training to work in the intersection of cancer biology and neuroscience and make
a transition to pursue careers in the field of neuroscience.
Candidates must hold Ph.D. and/or M.D. degree(s). Cancer biology research with a track record
of leading projects to publication is preferred. Candidates with experience in the in-vivo analysis
of mouse cancer models and single-cell and/or single-nucleus RNA sequencing are strongly
encouraged to apply. The postdoctoral fellow will be expected to direct independent projects in
a multi-disciplinary and collaborative research environment with a variety of cancer and
neuroscience research resources available at UT Southwestern Medical Center.
Information on our postdoctoral training program and benefits can be found in our Postdoc
Handbook or at http://www.utsouthwestern.edu/postdocs.
Interested individuals should send a CV, cover letter describing research experiences and
interests, and a list of three references to:
