Dana-Farber Cancer Institute
Located in Boston, Dana Farber Cancer Institute brings together world renowned clinicians, innovative researchers and dedicated professionals, allies in the common mission of conquering cancer, HIV/AIDS and related diseases. Combining extremely talented people with the best technologies in a genuinely positive environment, we provide compassionate and comprehensive care to patients of all ages; we conduct research that advances treatment; we educate tomorrows physician/researchers; we reach out to underserved members of our community; and we work with amazing partners, including other Harvard Medical School-affiliated hospitals
The Walensky laboratory focuses on the chemical biology of deregulated apoptotic and transcriptional pathways in cancer. Our goal is to develop an arsenal of new compounds-a chemical toolbox-to investigate and block protein interactions that cause cancer. To achieve these objectives, we take a multidisciplinary approach that employs synthetic chemistry techniques, structural biology analyses, and biochemical, cellular, and mouse modeling experiments to systematically dissect the pathologic signaling pathways of interest.
The Walensky laboratory is seeking highly accomplished PhD graduates applying for postdoctoral fellowship training in cancer chemical biology. We are particularly interested in candidates with deep expertise in structural biology, proteomics, molecular and cellular biology, or mouse modeling.
