Area of Responsibilities

Research & Development


  • A new Research Fellow position is available in Molecular Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics (MPET) under the mentorship of Dr. Liewei Wang. This laboratory focuses on the application of high throughput multiple omics technology to study how individual genome including tumor and germline genomes contribute to drug response and underlying mechanisms of drug resistance, especially those antineoplastic agents. Studies conducted include the use of the tools of molecular pharmacology, molecular genetics, cell biology, and functional genomics as well as animal models (GEMs and PDX) to understand the mechanisms of drug resistance and to help early preclinical therapeutic development in many translational studies with a focus on breast and prostate cancer.
  • The ideal candidate should have knowledge in cancer biology, and molecular pharmacology as well as with experience in applying these technologies would be highly regarded. Requirements for the position include a Ph.D. and/or M.D. degree with significant past laboratory research experience with an emphasis on cancer genetics and cancer pharmacology. Interested candidates should e-mail their curriculum vitae and bibliography to Dr. Liewei Wang at Wang.Liewei@mayo.edu.
  • A Research Fellow position in Life Sciences (LS) will require knowledge of either clinical-based research or laboratory-based research often obtained from a postdoctoral program. A Research Fellow at Mayo Clinic is a temporary position intended to provide training and education in research. Individuals will train in the research program of a Mayo Clinic principal investigator. Qualified individuals will demonstrate the potential for research as evidenced by their training and peer-reviewed publications and should become competitive for national research grants. Proof of English proficiency is required for J-1 Short-Term Scholars, Research Scholars, Professors, Specialists, and Student Interns sponsored by Mayo Clinic.
