The postdoctoral fellow will focus on interrogating the role stromal cell heterogeneity and plasticity in the metastatic microenvironment, following up on work published in our Nature Medicine 2017 article. The post-doctoral fellow will be trained in techniques related to cancer biology, vascular biology and computational analysis of large gene expression datasets to further our understanding of the metastatic microenvironment in experimental models and patient data.
