The Helen F Graham Cancer Center & Research Institute (HFGCCRI) at Christiana Care Health System (CCHS) is looking to hire a full time Post-Doctoral Fellow to join Dr. Bruce Boman in his Research Laboratory.
The successful candidate will perform the proposed molecular and cellular biological assays including:
RNA and Protein Isolation
Quantitative PCR Analyses
These routine procedures are performed at the HFGCCRI Laboratory and there is also the opportunity to be heavily involved in publications if desired as a CCHS employee.
The project also involves additional cross-collaboration efforts with scientists at the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Delaware.
The laboratory is fully equipped and has strengths in availability of fresh human surgical tissues and isolation of cancer stem cells using flow cytometry.
The work and effort of this scientist will involve in working through a funded three year grant to do research on colon cancer stem cells. To continue building on discovery that stem cell overpopulation is the mechanism that drives cancer development and growth in the colon. This knowledge could ultimately aid in developing targeted and more effective cancer treatment strategies.
The team utilizes a multidisciplinary approach drawn from tumor biology, cancer genetics, pathology, medical oncology and molecular biology to discover how stem cells are regulated in the normal healthy colon and how gene mutations contribute to stem cell overpopulation in tumors.
