Cancer Biologist/Research Accelerator-- PhD level
West Virginia University Cancer Biologist - WVU Cancer Institute 17522
Please email email@example.com if interested, more than happy to elaborate, any questions welcome – thanks.
The WVU Cancer Institute at West Virginia University is seeking applications for a Cancer Biologist whose time will be focused primarily at the laboratory bench, developing methods and assays that are considered rate-limiting for a critical manuscript or grant (i.e., we are looking for a “research accelerator”). This position will be responsible for supporting projects and breakthroughs from other individual PIs affiliated with the Cancer Institute. This will be a somewhat “independent” position with dedicated lab space, and with a focused mission to enable and accelerate a research project. Nevertheless, there will be a need to eventually interface in a flexible fashion with multiple different faculty, in a collaborative fashion, and with some rotation over time as critical needs arise. We are seeking an individual who enjoys team science, passionate about translational cancer research with excellent oral and written communication skills. In addition to participating in team science the individual will both utilize and be responsible for the maintenance of some common equipment housed within the shared space of the Cancer Institute. In order to be successful in this position, the ideal candidate will: • Perform cancer related experiments in close collaboration with a specific faculty or group. The “group” will change periodically as progress is made and other needs arise. • Maintain equipment housed within the common area of the Cancer Institute including a biotek plate reader, imaging plate reader and real time RT-PCR equipment. • Teach two (2) contact hours in CCB of graduate students on a cancer biology topic (based on applicant's expertise). • Manage and train students on common equipment which includes real time PCR, imaging plate reader, film developer, dishwasher, others.
Postdoctoral Research Position
The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center Postdoctoral positions are available in the laboratory of Dr. Helen Piwnica-Worms at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center The laboratory focuses on identifying alterations with functional significance to the development and progression of breast cancer and translating results from basic, omic and preclinical studies into improved clinical interventions for cancer patients. A major effort is directed towards elucidating the contribution made by heterogeneity (genomic, phenotypic, spatial and compositional) in both the tumor and its microenvironment to cancer progression and response to therapy.
Interested applicants should submit a cover letter specifying scientific accomplishments, a curriculum vitae, and the contact information of three references to: firstname.lastname@example.org
