Flow Cytometry Specialist - Advanced Cytometry Coordinator

The Baylor College of Medicine’s Cytometry and Cell Sorting Core has a job opening for a Flow Cytometry Specialist II: Advanced Cytometry Coordinator.

We are currently forming a Texas grant funded Advanced Cytometry Unit within the Cytometry and Cell Sorting Core to support the Dan L Duncan Comprehensive Cancer Center investigators at BCM. This unit includes a Helios mass cytometer with a Hyperion imaging platform, a BD Symphony A5, the development of a human and mouse mass cytometry antibody bank, and 4 fully funded FTEs. We are looking for a highly motivated individual to work with the core directors to help define and lead this Advanced Cytometry Unit. The Cytometry Project coordinator will be responsible for advanced multiparametric study coordination for the unit. This will include the organization of meetings between users, the bioinformatician, the technical specialists, and the antibody bank specialist. These meetings will be held to assist the users in selecting the most appropriate instrument for their goals, help them design the most effective antibody panels, establish the experimental protocol, and assist with data acquisition, analysis and interpretation. The Project Coordinator will also coordinate with staff in the Human Tissue Acquisition and Pathology Core for staining of tissue sections for the Hyperion and with staff within the Optical Imaging and Vital Microscopy Core for enhanced image analysis as needed. Finally, he/she will be cross-trained for use of all multiparametric analyzers and antibody conjugation to better serve the users.

**See below for more information. Feel free to post for others.**

Baylor College of Medicine is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action/Equal Access Employer.
