Multiple postdoctoral researcher positions are available immediately in the lab of Dr. Yuanpei Li at the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Medicine, School of Medicine, the University of California (UC), Davis. The Li lab is part of the collaborative Cancer Nanomedicine & Drug Development Program between the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Medicine and the NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center at the University of CaliforniaUC, Davis. Through close collaboration with the world-class UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, Comprehensive Cancer Center, and Center for Genomic and Molecular Imaging, the Li lab focuses on the design, development, and clinical translation of novel nanomedicine platforms and new drugs for treatment of cancer and other diseases. In addition to the rapid “bench to bedside” translation of these technologies, the Li lab is working on new isolation, drug discovery and development, and novel and targeting delivery mechanisms by utilizing stem cells, exosomes, and oncosomes from patients.
The Li lab is now expanding and inviting applications from candidates who have a recent PhD and strong expertise in at least one of the following fields: Drug delivery/Nanomedicine, Medicinal chemistry, or Pharmacology and toxicology, Cancer immunology, Cancer biology, Medicinal chemistry, or Drug delivery.
