Overview: The Cancer Early Detection Advanced Research (CEDAR) center is a collaborative institution within the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute. The Knight Cancer Institute, known as one of the pioneers in personalized cancer medicine, is an international leader in research and cancer treatment. At CEDAR our mission is to detect and stop lethal cancers at the earliest stage because early detection saves lives. This is an ambitious goal, one that requires novelty, creativity, and innovation. We are comprised of biologists, chemists, biomedical engineers, computationalists, and clinicians conducting groundbreaking translational cancer research to help people maintain a high quality of life and reduce cancer mortality, to create a global early detection community, and to have a positive impact on the Oregon economy.
Our Commitment to Diversity: CEDAR is committed to increasing the diversity of the campus community. We are dedicated to promoting inclusion and multiculturalism by having outstanding researchers of diverse backgrounds work together on multiple projects. We encourage high-risk, high-reward research projects because defeating cancer requires out-of-the-box thinking and new perspectives. Our research is milestone driven to ensure that each project is fulfilling its stated goals.
Every Knight Cancer employee is expected to embody our guiding principles:
As a Senior Research Assistant, you will be part of collaborative project teams focusing on advancing early cancer detection. You will support CEDAR research by maintaining CEDAR laboratories and supplies and assisting in research activities. Senior Research Assistants are assigned to program projects as needed. The successful candidate must be highly motivated, adaptable and experienced in all aspects of the research laboratory. You will have a detailed knowledge of all aspects of laboratory research, and you must work independently in designing and implementing experiments for research projects, exhibiting exceptional organizational and communication skills, and training other team members (e.g., research assistants and students) as needed. The successful candidate will work closely with Jungsun Kim and other CEDAR members to support investigating the role of HBP1 transcription factor regulation in the pancreatic cancer model. In addition, the responsibilities will include leading a team on a full CEDAR project, instructing them on how to support biology experiments and assisting in experimental design.
Duties include but not limited to:
Laboratory Organization and Compliance
Additional duties as assigned by project leader or laboratory manager
