Department IUSM - Obstetrics & Gynecology
Campus IU School of Medicine Indianapolis
The high mortality rate correlated with ovarian cancer progression is directly
linked to the difficulty diagnosing the disease at early-stage and the nearly
universal development of chemo-resistance. To guide conceptual innovation and
future therapeutic interventions at the Dr. Condello laboratory, located in
the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Indiana University School of
Medicine, we are developing cutting-edge technologies to identify molecular
mechanisms that enable ovarian cancer to acquire resistance to traditional
chemotherapies. The ideal candidate will participate in DOD-funded translation
research projects to identify novel intervention targets and to deepen our
understanding of anti-cancer programs under development. We value a culture of
collaboration, teamwork, and mutual respect.
We are seeking a highly motivated and skilled scientist in tumor-host
communication with experience in in vitro 3D modeling of cancer, stem cell
biology, molecular biology, and mouse tumor models. This is an exciting
opportunity to apply cutting-edge methods and contribute to the development of
novel target therapeutics in the nation's largest medical school. Experience
in bioinformatics is a plus.
As the nation's largest medical school, Indiana University School of Medicine
is committed to being an institution that not only reflects the diversity of
the learners we teach and the patient populations we serve, but also pursues
the values of diversity, equity and inclusion that inform academic excellence.
We desire candidates who enhance our representational diversity, as well as
those whose work contributes to equitable and inclusive learning and working
environments for our students, staff, and faculty. IUSM strives to take an
anti-racist stance, regularly evaluating and updating its policies,
procedures, and practices to confer equitable opportunities for contribution
and advancement for all members of our community. We invite individuals who
will join us in our mission to advance racial equity to transform health and
wellbeing for all throughout the state of Indiana.
Doctoral or Terminal degree required. Ph.D. – Candidates are required to have
hands-on expertise in cell biology, stem cell biology, molecular biology, and
mouse tumor models. Experience in bioinformatics is a plus. The ideal
candidate will be expected to demonstrate ability to identify, evaluate,
propose, and develop new experimental approaches, generate and analyze data,
work independently on projects, contribute to the preparation of manuscripts
and grant proposals, participate in weekly laboratory meetings to present and
discuss research findings.
