3 Mass cytometry and one core scientist position open at BCM

Howdy Y’all,

The Baylor College of Medicine’s Cytometry and Cell Sorting Core currently has 4 new job openings!

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 four highly motivated individuals to work with the core directors to help define and lead this Advanced Cytometry Unit.

Flow Cytometry Specialist II: Advanced Cytometry Coordinator Requisition ID: 397

Cytometry Technologist III: Mass Cytometry Specialist Requisition ID: 1228

Cytometry Technologist III: High Parameter Flow Cytometry Specialist Requisition ID: 1229

Cytometry Technologist III: Core Scientist Requisition ID: 1599


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.

The Mass Cytometry Specialist will be responsible for operating the Helios Mass Cytometer and its associated Hyperion Imaging System. This person will be responsible for the QA/QC of the instrument, troubleshooting, operations, interaction with service engineers and developing SOPs. Finally, he/she will be cross-trained for use of all multiparametric analyzers for validation of antibody conjugation. The successful candidate will be responsible for supporting ongoing academic and preclinical research in immuno-oncology using the Helios and Hyperion system. The incumbent will be responsible for the mass cytometry acquisition portion of the developed High Parameter Cytometry pipeline.

The Flow Cytometry Specialist will be responsible for operating the Symphony A5 Flow Cytometer. This person will be responsible for the QA/QC of the instrument, troubleshooting, operations, interaction with service engineers and developing SOPs. Finally, he/she will be cross-trained for use of all multiparametric analyzers for validation of antibody conjugation. The successful candidate will be responsible for supporting ongoing academic and preclinical research in immuno-oncology using the Symphony A5 system. The incumbent will be responsible for the flow cytometry acquisition portion of the developed High Parameter Cytometry pipeline.

The Core Scientist will be responsible providing research expertise in research areas relevant to flow and mass cytometry users. These areas chiefly include: cell culture, clinical research, and animal research. The core scientist is responsible for developing, refining, performing, and maintaining the integrity of specialty services offered in the core. As part of this role, the core scientist assists users with appointments to maintain a close interaction with our clientele and their needs. The core scientist is also expected to provide scientific support to the core staff and our clients including consultations.

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