The Clark Lab in the Crump Institute for Molecular Imaging is currently seeking a highly skilled and motivated scientist to conduct research into cancer metabolism using high-throughput screening technology, with the goal of identifying new strategies to target metabolic vulnerabilities in cancer. The ideal candidate should have a strong publication record and detailed knowledge of metabolism and high-throughput screening with applicable skills in biochemistry and molecular biology; should be able to work independently and in a team; and should have excellent oral and written communication skills.
The Crump Institute provides a unique, fast-paced, and collaborative environment containing integrated technologies that are ideal for innovative problem solving among a variety of scientific disciplines.
Responsibilities: The potential candidate for this opportunity will be involved in collaborative research to identify and study targetable metabolic vulnerabilities in cancer using high-throughput screening technology.
• Ph.D. in Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Chemical Biology, or a related field is required with a strong publication record in peer reviewed journals
• A superior academic performance and publication record
• Sound knowledge of standard techniques in biochemistry and molecular biology, including molecular cloning, immunoblotting, immunohistochemistry, and cell culture
• Must be able to prioritize work, multi-task and be very well organized
• Effective problem-solving skills and the ability to be self-directed
• Must have demonstrated awareness of safety practices required for working with biohazards and radiation
• Excellent communication skills (oral and written) with strong work ethics
• Highly motivated and demonstrates the ability to work efficiently and productively in a dynamic team environment with other scientific disciplines.
• Experience studying metabolism is highly desirable
• Experience with high-throughput screening techniques is highly desirable
• Experience with cell culture and animal models of cancer is highly desirable
