Research Postdoctoral Fellow (Liquid Biopsy)Posted by: Postdoc positions by NIH
Posted date: 2019-Feb-28
Children’s National is expanding an initiative to develop cell free DNA liquid biopsy assays that will advance the treatment of children with brain tumors. We target single nucleotide variants, hotspot mutations, and epigenetic tumor markers using both digital droplet PCR and next generation sequencing. Candidates with experience in these or complimentary areas are sought to expand the project portfolio and capabilities of the laboratory.
The Research Postdoctoral Fellow is a "research trainee" for the purpose of enhancing and developing research competencies. Assists faculty in the conduct of research and reports to a principal investigator or CRI Center Director. Can serve in several roles in the laboratory setting depending on the scientific specialty and needs of the research project supported. Participates directly in the design and conduct of experiments and therefore needs technical knowledge and subject matter expertise encompassing several disciplines such as molecular and cellular biology, biochemistry, genetics, physiology or animal science. Based on experience the research post-doctoral fellow may train technical staff, graduate students and others in laboratory procedures may provide general supervision in the laboratory and assists with data management and analysis. In addition, the research post-doc fellow will be responsible for assisting the principal investigator in the planning and execution research projects, grant applications and publications. May further assist in the management of resource allocations, and may manage day-to-day activities in the laboratory, such as purchasing, oversight of laboratory animals, radioactivity, and biosafety issues. May guide or lead the work of peers, technicians or other diverse support staff as necessary to achieve specific assignments or complete large and complex projects.Qualifications:
