Assistant Research Technician

The Papagiannakopoulos lab is open to interviewing any internal Pathology candidates interested in the following position Assistant Research Technician

Position Summary: Our lab at NYU Medical School, Department of Pathology, is seeking a full time Technical Assistant/Laboratory Technician to work in the field of cancer biology and cancer genome engineering. Cancer is a multistep process that involves mutations and other alterations in oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes. Genome sequencing studies have identified a large collection of genetic alterations that occur in human cancers. However, the determination of which mutations are causally related to tumorigenesis remains a major challenge. The goal of our lab is to create and utilize genetically engineered mouse models (GEMMs) to model various types of cancers with a particular focus on lung cancer. These models enable the characterization of the critical steps of tumor initiation and progression at a molecular, cellular and whole organism level. Our lab is pioneering the use of GEMMs of lung cancer in combination with in vivo CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing approaches to address the immediate need to systematically interrogate the complex catalog of mutations obtained from cancer genome sequencing studies.

Job Responsibilities:

  1. Work closely with the laboratory Principle Investigator to accomplish the research objectives of the lab, participating in original biomedical research in the field of cancer.
  2. Contribute to mouse colony management and husbandry; isolation of genomic DNA and PCR-based genotyping; participation in the isolation and histopathological analysis of tumors; use of standard molecular biology techniques including molecular cloning, immunohistochemistry, western blotting and tissue culture
  3. Perform management of laboratory supplies (inventorying stock, placing orders, and verifying receipt)
  4. Assist with equipment maintenance
  5. Attend and participate in group and project meetings
  6. Performs other duties as assigned.
