Employment Opportunities

The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center is currently accepting applications for the CPRIT TRIUMPH Postdoctoral Fellowship in Translational Cancer Research. This three-year fellowship provides basic, translational, and clinical training and aims to further develop talented PhD or MD/PhDs into successful clinical/translational research scientists. Applications are reviewed quarterly with the next cycle due date of June 30, 2019. Additional information regarding eligibility, application process, and current trainees and program alumni profiles are found at www.mdanderson.org/CPRITTRIUMPH.

Please contact Dr. Kari Brewer Savannah, Program Manager, with any questions at ksavannah@mdanderson.org.


Dr. Bruce Chase, UNO Professor of Biology, is looking for potential applicants for a planned instructor position in undergraduate neuroscience at UNO.  The Neuroscience program has about 150 undergraduate majors, and anticipates obtaining funding to hire a full-time instructor (renewable) in the fall.   They welcome both experienced and newly minted (or very close to being finished) PhDs who are seeking teaching experience in an undergraduate setting.  The position is full-time and would include teaching several classes each semester and advising Neuroscience majors.  If we can identify an internal (UNO/UNMC) candidate, it will be faster for us to obtain permission to make the hire.   So, please spread the word to your colleagues at UNMC.  All eligible and interested applicants are asked to informally contact Jeff French (jfrench@unomaha.edu) or Dr. Bruce Chase (bchase@unomaha.edu).

Job Summary

NIH-funded/Industry-funded postdoctoral fellowship is available starting summer 2019 at The Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences-University of Nebraska Medical Center.

Research in our laboratory is involved in the multidisciplinary area of drug metabolism and pharmacokinetics (DMPK). Our research focuses on the application of Bioanalytical Chemistry, in vitro and in vivo animal models to support ADMET (absorption, distribution, metabolism, excretion, and toxicity) and pharmacokinetic (PK) studies. This is a technique-driven enterprise; therefore, expertise in liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) is heavily used in our research.

Another area of interest in Dr. Yazen Alnouti’s laboratory is the discovery of biomarkers for hepato-biliary diseases based on bile acid metabolism by sulfation, a phase II metabolic pathway.

Our laboratory is located in College of Pharmacy, which has state-of-the-art LC-MS instrumentation, cell culture facility, and PK software.

Required Qualifications Candidates must hold a Ph.D. in pharmaceutical sciences
Supplemental Qualifications Must possess strong independent research abilities, excellent verbal and written communication skills, be self-motivated, and able to work well in a multidisciplinary- and team-oriented environment. Extensive experience in quantitative and qualitative LC-MS analysis, Pharmacokinetic analysis using WinNonlin software, small animal surgery, cell culture, in vitro ADME systems (microsomes, S9, hepatocytes, Caco2, protein binding, etc.), and basic molecular biology techniques are highly desirable.
