Position Summary: We have an exciting opportunity to join our team as a Research Scientist.
Multiple Myeloma is a cancer of the blood system. Clinically there has been much progress in improving outcomes but 30% of cases have aggressive clinical disease that does not respond well to therapy and new-targeted therapies are required to address this. The Multiple Myeloma Program at NYU is a new initiative to understand the biology and develop new therapies for this devastating illness. Major aims of the program are to utilize biological knowledge to treat high-risk disease and to prevent the development of the disease by manipulating the evolutionary trajectory of its premalignant precursor phases, which are common in the general population. To achieve these aims we will focus on three main areas studying the epigenetic basis of disease progression, the role of complex genetic structural rearrangements and the impact these have on the bone marrow microenvironment. We will use advanced genetic technologies to study the biology of these different areas. The person in this position will play an important role in the program being responsible for establishing a robust research environment, coordinating activities in the laboratory, inputting into the coordination, receipt and processing of clinical samples and establishing new technologies to meet the needs of the program. The position will require a sound knowledge and expertise in molecular genetic techniques and cell culture. The laboratory benefits from the vibrant scientific environment, collaboration with leading researchers and an outstanding medical school infrastructure that supports the most advanced technologies. Responsible for collaborating with Principal Investigators (PI) and working independently within the scientific framework of the PIs Laboratory.
