The mission of the Corsello laboratory is to develop new therapeutic strategies for cancer, with an emphasis on unmet needs in solid tumor oncology. We operate at the intersection of chemical biology and functional genomics to discover novel anti-cancer mechanisms of small molecules. Our findings have resulted in multiple drug development projects.
We are seeking a postdoctoral fellow to spearhead new phenotypic screens to reveal cancer vulnerabilities. The successful candidate will be expected to independently design and carry out innovative experiments using diverse molecular, cellular, and biochemical techniques to address biological questions concerning, for example, compound mechanism of action or mechanisms of resistance. This position affords the unique opportunity to participate in translation of basic science discoveries into therapeutic opportunities.
We will also consider candidates with computational backgrounds interested in developing computational approaches to determine predictive biomarkers of drug response.
The Corsello laboratory is situated in a highly dynamic research environment within Stanford University School of Medicine, the Stanford Cancer Institute, and the Stanford ChEM-H.
