Basic Life Research Associate on Tumor Heterogeneity
Cancer molecular biologist at level of Basic Life Science Research Associate is sought to study tumor heterogeneity. Projects aim to reveal cellular decision making based on intercellular and intracellular signaling with an emphasis on how these factors modulate drug resistance. Experimental model systems will include cancer cell lines, human tumor and normal tissues and mouse models. Projects will primarily involve manipulation of gene expression in cell culture and possibly in-vivo assays. Experience with mammalian cell culture models, fluorescent-activated cell sorting (FACS), gene expression profiling, and use of lentiviral delivery systems is required. Experience with enzymatic dissociation of tissues, sequencing and CyTOF analysis is desirable. Successful candidate will join investigators in cancer systems biology, interact closely with computational biologists and be responsible for designing and executing experiments to validate computationally-derived regulatory interactions of the tumor microenvironment, and oversee lab management.
The ideal candidate should have a PhD in molecular and cellular cancer biology, relevant publications, and fluency in English.
This is a fixed term appointment, renewable, 100% FTE
Interested candidates should email CV, brief research statement and contact information for at least 3 references (address, email, phone number) to: Ramzi Totah, firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line: Research Scientist in Tumor Heterogeneity.

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.
