The primary mission of the Division of Oncological Sciences at OHSU's Knight Cancer Institute is to better understand cancer through basic, translational and population-based research that improves cancer prevention, detection and treatments for all. Our community of faculty, trainees and staff brings together scientists from a broad range of disciplines and works collaboratively to advance innovation and translate discoveries from the lab into meaningful impacts for cancer patients and our community.
Centered on team science, our research is organized around four areas: Precision Systems Oncology, Cancer Data Science (includes Computational Biology, Bioinformatics and Biostatistics), Chemical Biology and Experimental Therapeutics, and Cancer Data Science. A foremost priority is to better understand cell plasticity by gaining the ability to experimentally decipher transitions from normal to cancer, cancer to metastasis and metastasis to resistance.
Every Knight Cancer employee is expected to embody our guiding principles:
The position will be responsible of a single-cell proteomics platform (Cyclic-immunofluorescence). The position will be responsible for developing the experimental plan, scanning samples with a fluorescent microscope and analyzing data obtained through the Cyclic-Immunofluorescence platform. Position will use pre-established protocols and analysis pipeline and will contribute to the development and expansion of the platform. The successful candidate will employ sound experimental design and problem solving to create workflow that produces robust analyses, as well as collaborate with collaborators to deliver product meeting project objectives.
The position will also be responsible for analyzing results of reverse phase protein array (RPPA) assays to generate data reports. The position will use a pre-established analysis pipeline and will contribute to the development of analysis pipeline and standardized data report output.
The position may also help coordinate the schedules of shared microscope resources at OHSU. Experience with antibody-based assays and imaging techniques (immunofluorescence or immunohistochemistry) and single-cell analysis is preferable. Experience with imaging analysis, python, MATLAB and/or R is required.
