Job description

Duties: The primary focus of our laboratory is the design and development of novel imaging agents for visualizing the immune system in the setting of cancer immunotherapy, including the development of new methods for tracking CAR T cells. Candidates should be prepared to immerse themselves in a highly collaborative and interdisciplinary environment; projects typically utilize molecular biology, chemical synthesis, radiochemistry, biochemistry, in vitro cell-based assays, and in vivo PET imaging

The candidate will be responsible for animal procedures such as tail vein injections, establishment of in vivo tumor mouse models (i.e., both syngeneic and xenogeneic), and small animal imaging (including optical imaging and PET/SPECT imaging). The candidate will also assist with cell culture, molecular biology procedures (DNA/RNA extraction and analysis, PCR, molecular cloning) and in vitro cell-based assays.

Qualifications: Bachelor's degree in molecular or cellular biology, zoology, or related field and 3 years to 5 years of experience or an equivalent combination of education and experience required. Master's degree preferred.

The qualified candidate must have a strong knowledge of and training in animal procedures; familiarity with small animal optical imaging and/or PET/SPECT imaging is a plus.
