At the Brain Tumor Microenvironment lab, led by Dr. Wajd Al-Holou, we work at the intersection of spatial biology, genetics, cutting-edge therapeutics, and patient care. We are committed to identifying new treatments to improve the survival and outcomes of patients with brain tumors. In the lab, we utilize state-of-the-art genetic technology with advanced laboratory modeling to push the boundaries of this field and define new vulnerabilities in the microenvironment of brain cancers, and develop new precision medicine targeted therapies.

We are looking for a talented and experienced individual to join our lab as a post-doctoral fellow.  

Using a combination of in vitro and in vivo modeling, analyses of clinical brain tumors samples and multi-omics (including Single Cell and Spatial Transcriptomics), our laboratory focuses on exploring the intrinsic and extrinsic tumor microenvironmental interactions mediating treatment resistance in gliomas. The projects in the laboratory will also have a strong translational component including involvement in an ongoing clinical trial. 

The ideal candidate will possess extensive experience in molecular and cellular biology and will be capable of leading research projects that unravel aberrant cellular signaling mechanisms in cancer. Demonstrating the ability to work independently in the laboratory is paramount. Furthermore, as a postdoctoral fellow, you will be able to pursue innovative and exciting projects while simultaneously fostering your own independent research career.

If you are interested and want to be involved, please send your CV and cover letter to Dr. Al-Holou ( Come join us where cancer meets neurobiology!
