An immediate opening for a research technician is available in Dr. William Shih’s lab. We aim to develop structural DNA nanostructure-based cancer immunotherapies.
The successful candidate will work with an interdisciplinary team of scientists experienced in biochemistry, DNA nanotechnology, cancer immunotherapy, cellular and molecular biology and animal tumor models to develop novel cancer vaccines targeting a broad range of cancer types. The successful candidate will participate and learn the process of an interdisciplinary project using multiple technologies.
This project is highly clinically translational. We are seeking an enthusiastic and self-motivated candidate with cellular biology and/or biochemistry training who is willing to learn multi-discipline approaches for cancer immunotherapies. In general, the individual will work closely with a postdoc in charging of this project and be engaged in experiments that utilize biochemistry for DNA nanotechnology and immunological cellular biology techniques as well as animal tumor models after well-training. The individual will also assist in daily laboratory operations and organization.
We are looking for candidates with a minimum of two-year availability. Candidates with laboratory technician experience and those potentially interested in a long-term position are encouraged to apply.
