Alex Kentsis, MD, PhD
Assistant Member, Molecular Pharmacology & Chemistry Program, Sloan-Kettering Institute
Attending Physician, Department of Pediatrics, Memorial Hospital
Assistant Professor, Weill Medical College of Cornell University
Opportunity Type: Research Technician
Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, New York, NY
We seek a highly motivated and organized individual to join our
efforts to investigate the molecular pathogenesis of treatment-resistant leukemias and
embryonal tumors. Our approach combines protein chemistry and mass spectrometry
proteomics with functional genetics in the mouse model system and in human cancer
cells. The selected candidate will work on experimental research projects directly with
the laboratory principal investigator (85% effort), and will also spend 15% effort on lab
management duties. A highly motivated and productive technician may get the
opportunity to lead an independent research project within the lab.
A bachelor’s degree is required, including formal study in biochemistry, molecular
biology, and genetics. The candidate must be a responsible individual with
outstanding communication, organizational and interpersonal skills. Previous
experience in scientific research would be a strong asset. Experience with mass
spectrometry and cancer biology is not required, but enthusiasm for learning new
techniques and careful attention to experimental details are essential.
40 hour/week full-time position with flexible hours and competitive salary/fringe
benefits. Anticipated start date is April to June 2014. A 2-year minimum
commitment is required.
A great transition opportunity for a matriculating
undergraduate student interested in pursuing a graduate or medical education after
additional laboratory training. Current and previous Kentsis Research Group
technicians have been co-authors on several papers and are now attending graduate
and medical schools.
