March 4 - April 5
Come work for an organization where everything matters.
Works under the mentorship of Dr. Stephen Lessnick, the Director of the Center for Childhood Cancer and Blood Diseases at Nationwide Children’s Hospital Research Institute (NCHRI). Dr. Lessnick’s laboratory is focused on the molecular basis of Ewing sarcoma development, with a particular emphasis on the transcriptional and epigenetic functions of the EWS/FLI fusion oncogenic transcription factor. The successful applicant will have basic skills in molecular biology and tissue culture, but will also bring and apply new areas of expertise to the laboratory. Of particular interest are individuals with expertise any of the following areas: biochemistry, biophysics, epigenetics, transcriptional analysis, computation biology, etc. The successful applicant will have an early track-record of publication success, will be able to work independently and develop collaborations as-needed, and will also mentor junior trainees, technicians, and others in the lab.
With guidance from a CRI mentor, design experiments and develops protocols required to conduct productive research in a specific scientific area. After the study has been designed, performs the research work in accordance with the protocol.
Helps to train and supervise technical support staff in performing specific techniques essential to carrying out the research program.
Records and analyzes data generated by the research study, and helps to plan future research endeavors.
Prepares scientific and technical papers from the results of the research work. Publishes papers in appropriate refereed scientific journals. Presents findings at local (particularly CRI research meetings) and national research forums.
If appropriate, collaborates with other ongoing research efforts either at CRI or at The Ohio State University.
This is considered a training position therefore the RI will allow a trainee 5 years to advance beyond the level of Post Doc.
Works toward research independence. Prepares to submit proposals to and obtain funding from external granting agencies.
Reports to: Either established CRI principal investigator (i.e. OSU faculty member) or a CRI Senior Research Scientist for guidance in research endeavors
KNOWLEDGE , SKILLS AND ABILITIES REQUIRED
MD, Ph.D, Pharm.D., or equivalent degree in PhD in Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, or Biomedical Sciences, Cellular and Molecular Biology, Biophysics, Bioinformatics
2. Necessary technical skills in the appropriate area of research.
3. Ability to do technical writing, and good communication skills.
