Position description

The Moslehi Lab is now recruiting for a Junior Specialist. The incumbent will pursue several projects related to the growing concerns of cardiovascular toxicities associated with cancer immunotherapies. An important focus in the laboratory for the last several years has been generation of pre-clinical models recapitulating the cardiovascular toxicities associated with novel cancer therapies and using these models to elucidate underlying biology. In addition, these observations are coupled with a robust clinical program. The hope is that the pre-clinical models will better inform clinical care for the cardio-oncology population.

The incumbent will help in better characterizing these pre-clinical models including both cell-based and small-animal models. The incumbent will also assist in the translational and clinical projects of the Moslehi Lab and the UCSF cardio-oncology program.

Techniques will include various molecular biology techniques and flow cytometry. In addition, other techniques utilized will include managing databases and analyzing data from these databases.

Required qualifications:
• B.A. in molecular biology or related topic.
• Demonstrated ability to contribute data to ongoing research efforts.
• Skill in independently resolving broad problems that may arise in collection or analysis of laboratory data.
• Self-motivated with ability to work independently and as part of a team.
