Job Title: Research Technician I-Amor Lab
Job Number: 55472
Location: Cold Spring Harbor, US
Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, located on Long Island, New York, is presently seeking a Research Technician I in the laboratory of Dr. Corina Amor.
The Amor Lab studies cellular senescence. Senescence is a stress response program that is triggered in damaged cells and leads to their elimination by the immune system. If uncleared, the accumulation of senescent cells generates a chronic pro-inflammatory microenvironment that conduces to aging and tumor development. We seek to understand how the immune system recognizes and targets these cells in physiological conditions and how senescent cells evade immune clearance in disease. We aim to leverage our findings to develop immune-based therapeutic approaches to target senescent cells in cancer, aging, and age-related pathologies. In our studies, we develop and combine novel somatic mouse models of cancer and cell-based therapeutics such as our recently developed senolytic CAR T cells.
Job duties will include mammalian cell culture, molecular biology, mouse handling, and colony management, administration of therapeutic agents, animal imaging, and histological staining. Additional responsibilities will include ordering supplies needed for studies, maintaining lab datasets, and helping to organize the laboratory.
Education: BS/BA in biology, biomedicine, biochemistry, or related life science discipline is required.
Skills and experience: Successful candidates will possess at least 1 year of experience with basic laboratory practices and have excellent organizational, analytical, and communication skills. We are looking for a candidate willing to take the initiative and work productively in a team-oriented environment while maintaining a strong sense of integrity. The following skills will be strongly considered: experience on molecular biology, mice handling and, dissection of tissue, histological staining, mammalian tissue culture, flow cytometry.
