Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) seeking an experienced and enthusiastic research technician for an immediate full-time position in the Tuveson Laboratory/CSHL Organoid Facility at CSHL.
The Tuveson lab is interested in uncovering biological pathways that play a role in pancreatic cancer progression and in applying the knowledge from these studies to design novel therapies for pancreatic cancer. The Tuveson laboratory recently developed the 3-D organoid models of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma and is using these model systems to unravel the biology of pancreatic cancer.
The successful candidate will join a group of scientists who employ cutting-edge technology to establish next generation organoid model systems from a wide variety of cancer tissues. These model systems will be used in-house and will also be made available to the scientific community all over the world, for mechanistic and therapeutic studies.
The candidate must have extensive experience in 2D mammalian cell culture. Experience in general molecular biology procedures including DNA isolation, cloning, quantitative PCR and RNA isolation is preferred, though it is not a requirement for this position. Familiarity and skills with common analytical computer programs are necessary. The successful candidate will also possess excellent organizational, analytical and communication skills, the willingness and ability to take initiative, and to work both independently and collaboratively as part of a team. Responsibilities will also include general laboratory organization and maintenance of databases.
