Job description

Job Description

The Oncology Department is seeking a highly motivated scientist to work in the Target ID and Validation (TIDVal) group. We apply large scale genomic analyses, pooled shRNA and CRISPR screening, and other cutting edge technologies to identify and validate novel oncology targets. Our ultimate goal is to systematically identify a clear path to drug discovery for novel target classes that will have major impact for the benefit of cancer patients.

The ideal candidate for this position will have a breadth of experience in cell and molecular biology techniques. Experience using shRNA, CRISPR, or other genome editing techniques to interrogate cellular phenotypes is essential. Any experience with cell-based methods to systematically interrogate protein function (e.g. deletion mapping, deep mutational scanning, CRISPR tiling) is highly desired. Knowledge of core oncogenic signaling networks and cancer biology is important. Immune oncology experience is a plus. This position will require outstanding technical ability at the bench, as well as excellent organizational and project management skills and the ability to work in a highly collaborative environment.
