Senior Postdoctoral Position / Junior Mentored Faculty @ Georgetown

Dear Colleagues,

We have been fortunate in obtaining additional R01 and foundation funding this year. The funding will support our quest to understand the biochemical/functional relationship of EWS-FLI1 with RHA. To be successful, I am looking for an individual with strong biochemistry in protein purification and enzymology. I think these skills will complement the biology and medicinal chemistry to strengthen our approach. I am looking for someone who is either a senior post-doc or potentially ready for a mentored faculty position.

Please post or circulate the attached notice. If you have specific individuals to suggest, please forward their names to me.

Best Regards,

Jeffrey A. Toretsky, M.D.
Associate Professor
Departments of Oncology and Pediatrics

AAAS Science & Technology Fellowship


For 35 years, the AAAS Science & Technology Policy Fellowships have provided scientists and engineers with a unique opportunity to apply their knowledge and skills to national and international issues in the federal policy realm, while learning first-hand about establishing and implementing policy.

Fellows select assignments in Congressional offices or federal agencies. This is a year-long opportunity, beginning September 1 and ending August 31. Most federal agencies offer Fellows the opportunity to renew for a second year.

AAAS seeks candidates from a broad array of backgrounds and a diversity of geographic, disciplinary, gender, and ethnic perspectives. Fellows have ranged in age from late 20s to early 70s. They represent a spectrum of career stages, from recent PhD graduates to faculty on sabbatical to retired scientists and engineers. Fellows also come from a range of sectors, including academia, industry, non-profit organizations, and government labs.

AAAS partners with approximately 30 scientific and engineering societies that also sponsor fellowships. They conduct separate application and selection processes and may provide different stipend and benefits support. Individuals interested in the Science & Technology Policy Fellowships are encouraged to apply with all scientific and engineering societies for which they qualify. Please see our website for details.
