Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center is located in New York, in Manhattan’s Upper East Side, adjacent to the Cornell University Weill Medical College and the Rockefeller University. This rich scientific environment provides many unique and unparalleled research training opportunities.
A research technician position is available immediately in a multidisciplinary team operating at the interface of chemistry, biology and medicine. The team’s efforts focus on understanding mechanisms associated with regulation of pathogenic systems by molecular chaperones (Rodina et al. Nat Chem Biol 2007, Luo et al. PNAS 2007, Caldas et al. PNAS 2009, Cerchietti et al. Nat Med 2009, Marubayashi et al. J Clin Invest 2010, Cerchietti et al. J Clin Invest 2010). The ultimate goal of the team is to translate these findings into novel treatments for cancers.
The successful candidate will:
- Have a strong desire to impact cancers
- Knowledge of standard molecular and cell biology methods
- Passion for science, and flexibility to work some evenings and weekends
- Ability to work towards defined goals in an efficient, safe and scientifically sound manner
Experience with handling mice and with drug administration by the PO, IP and IV routes a plus
