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.
An exciting opportunity has been created for an experienced researcher to join the Dr. Anupriya Agarwal Laboratory at the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute as a Senior Research Assistant in Portland, OR to study the mechanisms of leukemia initiation and drug resistance using multi-omics approaches.
Every Knight Cancer employee is expected to embody our guiding principles:
Dr. Agarwal and her team for over past 15 years focusing on identifying novel signaling pathways that are requisite for leukemia initiation, clonal evolution, and drug resistance. This position will be a hybrid between wet lab and computational disciplines, with a dedicated mentorship in both areas. The new team member will help lead the project focused on understanding the mechanisms of leukemia initiation and drug resistance in a context dependent manner. The project will use variety of advanced molecular biology techniques, CRISPR methods along with single cell transcriptomic, epigenetic, and genomic profiling in premalignant and malignant models using murine and human cells in vitro and in vivo. The candidate should also be able to perform complex data analysis, along with downstream analyses using computational approaches. Applicants will need to possess strong technical and organizational skills as well as the ability to manage an independent project.
Laboratory and/or computational experience in the field of molecular/cellular biology, cancer biology or a related field is preferred. Experience with sequencing library preparation, epigenetics, flow cytometry, or murine models of disease would be especially beneficial. Achieving this position requires that the researcher have demonstrated a satisfactory track record of scholarly activity. We are looking for an enthusiastic individual who is capable and willing to make maximum use of excellent facilities and a productive environment.
