Assistant / Associate Scientist Positions


Assistant/Associate Scientist positions are available in the Borriello laboratory, located in the Department of Cancer and Cellular Biology in the Lewis Katz School of Medicine, Philadelphia (US).


Our lab focuses on understanding how tumor cells, that have escaped from the primary tumor, survive in distant organs in a latent state for years (dormancy) and how they induce metastatic relapse. We use a multi-disciplinary approach to study the biology of metastasis, integrating cell signaling, biochemistry, molecular biology, multiplex tissue imaging, several mouse models, and intravital imaging of tumor cells in live animals. Additional information on our research program can be found on our website:
