The Canary Center at Stanford under the direction of Dr. Sanjiv S. Gambhir, seeks a Core Manager to lead the cell and molecular biology core activities and to manage the research staff. The candidate will use current methods in bioinformatics (directs evolution and protein engineering to develop peptides and proteins that bind oncological molecular targets with ultra high affinity and specificity), and Biophysical and bioanalytical chemistry (provides detailed characterization for quality-assured PET radiopharmaceuticals that are prepared for clinical translation). In addition, the Core Manager will generate positron emission tomography (PET) tracers to be tested for detecting tumors in living subjects.
The Core Manager will foster productive collaborations with the Centers leadership and other core directors across the Center and Stanford. This role will provide the Core Manager an opportunity to translate their work, learn cutting-edge imaging modalities, and potentially gain experience in filing exploratory Investigational New Drug (eIND) applications with the FDA.
The Canary Center for Cancer Early Detection is committed to maintaining state-of-the-art protein engineering capabilities. Cell and Molecular Biology, Chemistry, and Proteomics are the three core facilities that provide scientific solutions and support to the center.
Required Qualifications: PhD in biochemistry, chemistry, molecular biology or related field Highly skilled in using the tools of molecular biology, and proficient in protein expression, quantification, and purification, and molecular biology Knowledgeable with use of bioconjugate chemistry and radiochemical methods Experience in Protein Engineering Highly self-motivated and creative Excellent attention to detail Ability to collaborate across disciplines staff management skills Able to work as part of a team Manuscript preparation and editing experience required Excellent verbal and written communication skills are critical

Located between San Francisco and San Jose in the heart of Silicon Valley, Stanford University is recognized as one of the world's leading research and teaching institutions. Leland and Jane Stanford founded the University to "promote the public welfare by exercising an influence on behalf of humanity and civilization." Stanford opened its doors in 1891, and more than a century later, it remains d...edicated to finding solutions to the great challenges of the day and to preparing students for leadership in a complex world. The University's thriving diverse community is comprised of nearly 7000 undergraduate students, 9000 graduate students, 2000 faculty members, 1900 postdoctoral scholars, and over 11,000 academic and administrative staff in seven schools including several interdisciplinary research centers and institutes. The campus spreads over 8000 contiguous acres and nearly all undergraduates live on campus. Stanford offers bachelor's and master's degrees in addition to doctoral degrees (PhD, MD, DMA and JD) plus a number of professional and continuing education programs and certifications.
