Stanford HIMC-Life Science Research Professional 2 opening

The Human Immune Monitoring Center (HIMC) and Gates Center for Human Systems Immunology is seeking a highly motivated Life Science Research Professional 2 to join our Cell Analysis group to perform multidisciplinary projects related to CyTOF mass cytometry in human disease.


The mission of the HIMC is to provide standardized, state-of-the-art immune monitoring assays at the RNA, protein, and cellular level, as well as archiving, reporting, and data mining support for clinical and translational studies. In partnership with the research community, we also work to test and develop new technologies for immune monitoring. The HIMC offers advanced CyTOF mass cytometry panels for immunophenotyping, intracellular cytokine staining, and phospho-signaling.



The Gates Center for Human Systems Immunology uses the infrastructure of the HIMC to carry out mechanistic and correlative science studies for clinical studies funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. These studies can include CyTOF assays, often with significant study-specific customizations.


We are seeking a creative, motivated, organized individual to apply and optimize CyTOF panels for the Gates Center and HIMC. The LSRP2 will collaborate with other team members and client investigators to develop protocols, perform experiments, and evaluate and interpret results.



DESIRED QUALIFICATIONS:

· Hands-on experience with flow cytometry, or preferably, CyTOF mass cytometry.

· Experience with data analysis for flow cytometry/CyTOF and competence with Excel and other data handling software.



EDUCATION & EXPERIENCE (REQUIRED):

Bachelor's degree in related scientific field and two years of relevant work experience; or Master’s degree in a related scientific field.
