RESEARCH ASSOCIATE I (posted April 25, 2017)

We are seeking a research assistant I to join a laboratory studying T cell immunity in humans with an emphasis on tumor immunology and therapeutic target discovery. Dr. Nicholas Haining’s laboratory is a field leader in the genomic analysis of CD8 T cells and is now working on identifying mechanisms of tumor resistance to immunotherapy. As a research assistant in the Haining lab, your duties will include molecular cloning, cell culture, extensive work with mice, and large-scale genetic screening. You will work closely with the principal investigator and other scientists at the Broad Institute in Cambridge, MA, and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, MA, and will function largely independently on a daily basis after training. Your work will be central to several major research projects, and co-authorship on high-impact publications is strongly supported.

The research will require you to be adaptable and able to work in a fast-paced and demanding environment. Learning new techniques in the lab or from other labs to increase expertise will be encouraged. Candidates should have excellent communication skills, be highly organized, and comfortable with new technology. BS degree, or equivalent, with previous experience in laboratories is required. This position will provide an outstanding experience for a career in science, medicine or biotechnology.  Interested candidates should apply here (requisition number 3109). If you have any questions about the position or your application, contact us at haininglab@gmail.com.

RESEARCH SCIENTIST I (posted April 25, 2017)

The Broad Institute is seeking a research scientist I to join a group studying tumor immunology with an emphasis on therapeutic target discovery. Dr. Nicholas Haining's laboratory is a field leader in genomic analysis of the immune system and is now working on identifying mechanisms of tumor resistance to immunotherapy. As a Research Scientist I in the Haining lab, you will oversee a team applying tools for in vivo CRISPR screening in mouse tumor models. Your supervisory role will include project planning, scheduling and reporting; hands-on benchwork (molecular cloning, cell culture, and extensive work with mice); detailed analysis, interpretation and reporting of results to project leadership; and direct oversight and training of a small team of research associates. You will work closely with the principal investigator and other scientists at the Broad Institute in Cambridge, MA, and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, MA, and will function largely independently. Your work will be central to several major research projects, and co-authorship on high-impact publications is strongly supported.

  • Ph.D. Candidates should have 3+ years of mouse model experience, with a strong focus on cancer or immunology.
  • Experience with genome-editing technologies is encouraged.
  • Candidates should have good working knowledge of Prism and Adobe software, and experience with FACS analysis. Candidates should also possess excellent communication skills, be highly organized, and comfortable with new technology.
  • The research will require you to be adaptable and able to work independently in a fast-paced and demanding environment.
  • Learning new techniques in the lab or from other labs to increase expertise will be encouraged. This position will provide an outstanding experience for a career in the biotechnology industry.
