ECLIPSE is a new platform at The University of Texas MD Anderson formed to identify novel cancer antigens and develop biologic immunotherapy strategies to treat leukemias. The primary requirement for an individual in this position is an experienced and highly motivated scientist with hands-on experience in generation and analyses of complex multi-parametric flow cytometry data. Such data is expected to influence a broad array of decisions around target identification and validation. The successful candidate will participate in cross-functional research and to design, perform and interpret assays for high throughput and high-content flow cytometry analyses. The candidate must have solid hands-on experience with designing high-parameter and high-throughput flow cytometry assays and executing robust computational analyses of longitudinal primary cell analyses on various software platforms used in flow data analyses. A strong background in T cell immunology, leukemia and stem cell transplantation is critical to success in this position. The selected candidate will be expected to work at the bench and also manage direct reports. The candidate will be expected to participate in platform leadership and decision-making. Previous experience in biotech/pharma is highly preferred. Experience with the FACS Symphony instrument and cell sorting experience would be beneficial.
The mission of The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center is to eliminate cancer in Texas, the nation, and the world through outstanding programs that integrate patient care, research and prevention, and through education for undergraduate and graduate students, trainees, professionals, employees and the public.
