A Technician position is available immediately for highly motivated candidates to work in the field of radiation biology, including on a new NCI-funded project investigating the therapeutic efficacy of heavy-ion radiotherapy in the control of pancreatic cancer, one of the deadliest cancers that has proven intractable to conventional treatments, as well as the potential combination of heavy-ion radiotherapy and the induction of ferroptosis.
The position will involve immune-fluorescent and immune-histochemistry assays, histology, microscopy, real-time RT-PCR, and assisting with irradiations of both cultured cells and mice. The successful candidate will receive training in all necessary techniques. Our laboratory is in the Center for Radiological Research (crr.columbia.edu) in the Department of Radiation Oncology at Columbia University Irving Medical Center in Upper Manhattan. Some studies will require irradiations using our heavy-ion facility at the Radiation Research Accelerator Facility (www.raraf.org/), and beamlines at Brookhaven National Laboratory (https://www.bnl.gov/nsrl/).
