Dana-Farber Cancer Institute
Located in Boston, Dana Farber Cancer Institute brings together world renowned clinicians, innovative researchers and dedicated professionals, allies in the common mission of conquering cancer, HIV/AIDS and related diseases. Combining extremely talented people with the best technologies in a genuinely positive environment, we provide compassionate and comprehensive care to patients of all ages; we conduct research that advances treatment; we educate tomorrow’s physician/researchers; we reach out to underserved members of our community; and we work with amazing partners, including other Harvard Medical School-affiliated hospitals.
The Look Laboratory of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute is seeking a Research Technician to participate in cellular and molecular assays and mouse cancer model experiments directed at exploring apoptotic signaling pathways in leukemia. The goal of the project is to investigate the molecular mechanisms underlying the anti-leukemic efficacy of the newly developed drug that blocks nuclear-cytoplasmic export pathway. The project also focuses on determining the activity of the drug against leukemia stem cells using genetically-engineered mouse models of leukemia.
The experimental skills needed for the successful performance of this research project include cellular and molecular biology assays, cell tissue culture experiments, and mouse experiments, such as basic surgical procedures and preparation of tissues for molecular analysis. Job qualifications include strong organizational skills, strong laboratory experience that includes mouse experimentation, and the ability to apply this knowledge in a dynamic work environment.
