The Laboratory of Cancer Pharmacogenomics at the Boston University School of Medicine seeks a motivated person to perform research in targeted cancer therapeutics. The lab is directed by Dr. Anurag Singh Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics. Research in the lab is focused on delineating molecular mechanisms of cancer progression using functional genomics and systems biological tools and techniques.
DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES
- Maintenance of cancer cell lines in culture
- DNA/RNA extraction from cells and tissues
- PCR cloning including plasmid DNA manipulation
- Cell based assays, including cell viability assays, signaling pathway analysis and immunofluorescence
Bachelors or Masters degree in Biology/Biochemistry or related field. The successful candidate will have some basic prior cell and molecular biology experience, including nucleic acid extraction and purification, PCR, cloning, cell culture and Western blotting. Some animal husbandry experience would be desirable but not required.
