The Molecular Cytology Core facility at Sloan Kettering Institute is seeking a senior research scientist to lead the planning and the execution of Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) experiments with the members of the research and clinical laboratories at MSKCC and neighbor Institutes. The Atomic Force Microscopist is expected to work as a member of the Core team, focusing specifically on the AFM, to continue the expansion of its use, and assist in the development and standardization of methods for the scientists. While his/her role would entail a great deal of AFM work, s/he is required to understand and work with the optical systems to facilitate and catalyze projects and cross-collaboration.

The ideal candidate should have:
• PhD degree in Biological Science with advanced AFM experience (minimally 3 years)
• Strong computational background
• Excellent communication skills and ability to work in a team environment
• Strong organization skills, flexibility in working hours and ability to multitask
