The Mian Lab is exploring the genetic and epigenetic mechanisms underlying lethal cancers of the genitourinary tract with the goal of translating discovery into novel therapies. Our approach couples translational research to clinical investigation in GU malignancies at Cleveland Clinic's Lerner Research Institute. We are developing powerful tools for identifying predictive and prognostic biomarkers as well as for therapeutic target discovery.
Our mission is to reduce the burden of prostate and bladder cancer through fundamental discovery and to improve the lives of cancer patients.
Dr. Mian is a radiation oncologist and physician scientist at Cleveland Clinic's Lerner Research Institute. He has a appointments in Radiation Oncology, Lerner Research Institute, Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine and is an Assistant Professor of Medicine at Case Western Reserve University. He is a member of the Genitourinary Malignancies Research Program of the Case Comprehensive Cancer Center.

A Postdoctoral fellow position is available immediately in the Mian Laboratory, in the Department of Translational Hematology and Oncology Research (THOR) at the Cleveland Clinic’s Lerner Research Institute in Cleveland, OH.
A fully funded position awaits a fellow looking to pursue a dynamic career in translational biomedical research! Our lab at the Cleveland Clinic studies epigenetic, metabolic, and endocrine determinants of response to DNA damage in a variety of cancers. The work involves characterization of innovative preclinical models using genome editing and molecular analysis methods. Clinical samples are readily available for validation studies. The position offers excellent opportunities for publication, career development and advancement. Candidates will join a stimulating academic environment within the Genitourinary Malignancies Research Center of the Lerner Research Institute.
Highly motivated individuals with a strong background and interest in translational cancer research are encouraged to apply. Applicants must be recent Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. graduates in cell biology, molecular biology, cancer biology, molecular genetics, developmental biology or related fields. Prior experience in culture of human primary and cancer cell lines, molecular biology, as well as a track record of peer-reviewed publications is required. Individuals with additional experience in genome editing, mouse work or bioinformatics, are strongly encouraged to apply.
Interested applicants should send a CV, a cover letter/statement that describes career goals, and 3 references to Dr. Omar Mian (email@example.com).
Our education and training programs offer hands-on experience at one of the nationʼs top hospitals. Travel, publish in high impact journals and collaborate with investigators to solve real-world biomedical research questions.Learn More
Precision cancer medicine is the goal of a new multidisciplinary study, led by Dr. Tim Chan, examining radiation therapy combined with targeted therapy
Drs. Mian, Gupta and Hwang—a multi-disciplinary team of researchers and clinicians—will look for ways to optimize immune checkpoint inhibitor therapy, including testing novel combinatory treatments and identifying predictive biomarkers of treatment response.
