Post doctoral fellow
Oregon Health & Science University
The Grossberg Lab is looking for a post doctoral fellow to study interorgan metabolic communication pathways that drive muscle wasting in pancreatic cancer cachexia. The project is supported by a recently awarded R37 from the National Cancer Institute. This work will evaluate the role and metabolic fate of fatty acids in murine models of pancreatic cancer. A large patient cohort and sample repository is also being curated for translational research endpoints.

Qualified candidates should have a PhD and expertise in murine cancer models, metabolic phenotyping, and molecular biology techniques, including western blot, PCR-based techniques, and cloning. Experience and facility with computational approaches is preferred.

Come join our lively lab in beautiful Portland, OR. Please approach at the conference or reach out at the email below for more information.

Post Doc / Research Scientist
University of Utah
Cancer Epidemiology: focuses on colorectal cancer, health behavior, systemic biomarkers, body composition and cachexia
Postdoctoral Fellow in Muscle Wasting
The University of Washington/VA Puget Sound
The Garcia laboratory in the Department of Medicine at the University of Washington and the Puget Sound VA is looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow (senior fellow, job class code 0445), who is interested in studying signaling networks related to muscle wasting in cancer patients that control muscle mass and function with the goals to identify and characterize novel mechanisms of muscle atrophy. We are particularly interested in the role of mitochondria and hormonal signaling including androgens.

Applicants should have a Ph.D. degree or equivalent in the field of the life sciences, a strong publication record, and good spoken/written communication skills.

Highly desirable backgrounds/skills include expertise in: 1) Clinical/translational research, 2) Muscle metabolism and mitochondrial function, and 3) molecular biology in cancer or metabolic diseases. The postdoctoral fellow will work in a highly interactive laboratory environment and collaborate with clinical experts, molecular biologists, and biochemists.

Interested candidates should send 1) cover letter briefly describing previous experience and future research interests, 2) curriculum vitae, and 3) contact information of three references to Dr. Jose Garcia, MD PhD (

The University of Washington is an affirmative action and equal opportunity employer.

Full-time Physician Scientist Faculty, non-tenure
VA Puget Sound Health Care System and The University of Washington
VA Puget Sound Health Care System (VAPSHCS) and School of Medicine at the University of Washington (UW) are seeking candidates for one full-time faculty position (1.0 FTE: Assistant, Associate or Full Professor) without tenure by reason of funding. This position will be based at, and patient care efforts will occur at, VAPSHCS. This position is paid directly by VAPSHCS and receives no UW compensation. Assistant Professors are eligible for multi-year appointments. Associate and Full Professors hold indefinite appointments that all align with 12-mo (July 1–June 30) service. Depending on qualifications, the candidate will be appointed in one of the following departments: Medicine, Neurology, Psychiatry or Rehabilitation Medicine. We anticipate a start date on or before July 1, 2024.
The succesful candidate will serve as a Physician Scientist in the Geriatric Research, Education and Clinical Center (GRECC) at VAPSHCS. The GRECC is an interdisciplinary center of excellence in gerontology & geriatric medicine with strong research, education, and clinical programs in neurodegenerative disease, endocrinology, and other aging-related areas. The successful candidate will be expected to lead a vibrant nationally funded research program (>60% effort), mentor research trainees, provide faculty service (<20% effort) and attend on clinical service (<20% effort). The GRECC Investigator position is supported by a VA hard-line salary and institutional support, including competitive start-up resources and laboratory space, to promote the candidate’s long-term success. Our departments offer a highly collegial and collaborative culture, with diverse interdisciplinary research ties across campus. We encourage applications from women and underrepresented minority candidates, individuals with disabilities, and protected Veterans.  Salary and academic appointment will be commensurate with experience, qualifications, and academic rank. UW faculty engage in teaching, research, and service.
Postdoctoral Associate Position Studying Novel Mechanisms of Cancer-associated Cachexia
University of Florida
The laboratory of Dr. Sarah Judge, Ph.D., at the University of Florida has a funded postdoctoral position immediately available for a highly motivated, skilled, and independent researcher to take part in a basic and translational research project investigating novel mechanisms of cancer-induced cachexia. The project is funded by a grant from the National Cancer Institute and is focused on both tumor- and skeletal muscle-specific mechanisms that drive muscle loss in response pancreatic cancer. The project was developed from preliminary studies collected using patient samples and pre-clinical models of cancer, making the project highly translational. The successful candidate will also work closely with Dr. Andrew Judge, a long-standing research collaborator. Our research is currently funded by active grants from the National Cancer Institute and from the Florida Department of Health, Bankhead Coley Research Program, and the successful candidate will work alongside passionate graduate students, post-docs, and undergraduate volunteers.
