An NIH-funded research position is available immediately at Stanford University, in the Physical Oncology Laboratory (Department of Radiation Oncology). Join a diverse and dynamic group of researchers in making a lasting impact on translational cancer research by building novel physical tools and technologies. Our interests revolve around molecular cancer imaging and radiation therapy.
The lab is looking for candidates who are:
– Passionate about cancer research
– Interested in cracking difficult problems
– Knowledgeable and curious
– Effective communicators
– Able to work across disciplines
– Attentive to details
– Critical thinkers
– Committed to integrity in science
Candidates should have a PhD, or equivalent, in a biomedical-related field and prior experience working in a research lab. Interest in developing imaging technologies and engineering is a plus for this position. The researcher will primarily contribute to a project to develop technologies for highly sensitive cell tracking using positron emission tomography (PET) and will require development and imaging of a mouse model of metastatic melanoma. Research will also involve development of 3D in vitro tumor models (e.g. spheroids).
Preferred qualifications include:
– General wet-lab skills and assays
– Mammalian cell culture, 2D and 3D
– Mouse handling and imaging
– Knowledge of cancer biology
– Publication track record
To apply for a position in the Physical Oncology Lab, please upload your CV and 1-page cover letter as a single PDF file.
