Essential Functions


The Ribeiro Pereira Lab is a preclinical multimodal imaging laboratory that aims at modulating the availability of surface targets by elucidating their regulatory mechanisms to enhance antibody- and non-antibody-based tumor therapies. The research program has four major goals:

  • Use biomolecules as tumor-targeting agents to deliver imaging or cytotoxic cargo.
  • Use multimodal imaging to monitor the binding of molecular-targeted compounds to tumors before and during therapy.
  • Use genetic and temporal pharmacologic approaches to modulate tumor biology in ways that enhance tumor binding of antibody- and non-antibody-based cancer therapies.
  • Improve cancer diagnosis and treatment by combining basic tumor biology with preclinical knowledge and clinical needs.

We seek a highly motivated and productive Postdoctoral Research Associate with a Ph.D. degree in chemistry, biochemistry, or a related field to help achieve the four primary goals of our research program. The hire will work under the supervision of Dr. Patrícia Ribeiro Pereira, Ph.D.


  • Works with cell lines, fresh cultures of tumors, and patient-derived xenografts.
  • Develops radiolabeled biomolecules and cell labeling technologies, dosimetry, and pharmacodynamics/pharmacokinetics studies.
  • Correlates molecular imaging findings with the respective tumor’s genetic profile.
  • Modulates tumor biology by using genetically modified mouse models and pharmacologic approaches.
  • Uses multimodal imaging to visualize cancer-immune cell interaction.
  • Converts novel scientific ideas to hypothesis-driven scientific experiments.
  • Designs and conducts experimental methods while critically interpreting experimental results.
  • Presents research findings to a multidisciplinary audience.

  • Required Qualifications

    Ph.D. degree in chemistry, biochemistry, or a related field, M.D., D.Sc. or an equivalent terminal or doctoral degree.

    Preferred Qualifications

    • Expertise in tumor biology or oncology is highly desirable.
    • Candidates with a background in pharmacology, biochemistry, immuno-oncology but limited to no experience in radiochemistry/molecular imaging are encouraged to apply.
    • Enthusiastic and motivated individual with good verbal and written communication skills.
    • Strong interest in our research program and laboratory environment.
    • Ability to learn new techniques, design research projects independently, and be willing to prepare grants and manuscripts.

    Salary Range

    Base pay commensurate with experience.
