Two positions are open for creative, independent, and energetic candidates to work in Einstein College of Medicine’s Gruss Lipper Biophotonics Center and Integrated Imaging Program in New York City under the supervision of Drs. John Condeelis and David Entenberg.
Both positions are within the advanced imaging core of a newly funded program project group focused on studying the mechanisms that regulate breast cancer cells at the metastatic site, and their re-dissemination. The candidates will use advanced microscopy techniques and aid a multidisciplinary team of physicists, cell and cancer biologists, and physician scientists in utilizing them. Techniques utilized within the core include confocal, multiphoton, and widefield microscopy, surgical implantation of optical imaging windows, correlative microscopy, and quantitative pathology. These are exciting and unique multidisciplinary positions that combine 1) biomedical engineering, 2) microscopy & image analysis, 3) and animal models of cancer.
Minimum Education and Experience:
Applicants must have a B.Sc., M.Sc., or Ph.D. in a relevant field (e.g., cancer biology, biomedical engineering, etc.) and be willing to work with mice. We are looking for candidates with who bring significant skills in one or two of the above areas and will be able to adopt the others. The Core has a strong training program to complement and advance existing skills, thus it is not critical to be highly experienced all areas.
To apply, applicants must submit: 1) A cover letter describing the applicant’s interest in the position, 2) A curriculum vitae, and 3) Names of three referees that we may contact for letters of reference. Email applications with the subject “GLBC Imaging Specialist Application” or “GLBC Director Application” to David Entenberg (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Salary range: $65,000 - $100,000 depending on position and experience at time of arrival.
Employer Name: Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Einstein is an equal opportunity employer.
