A position is available for a full time research trainee (Post Graduate Associate) to work on projects involving molecular testing and measurement of immune biomarkers of solid tumors. The position would include patient interaction and laboratory work focusing on characterizing the immune cells in tumor samples using novel methods. The training would entail learning about molecular and immunologic abnormalities and working with oncologists and pathologists to identify unique features in human cancers that may impact treatment options. Candidates should have a Bachelors or Master’s degree. The position is full-time for a minimum of 1 year to start on or after June 1, 2017.
Post-graduate Research Opportunity in Yale’s Comprehensive Cancer Center
A post-graduate research associate position is available in Katerina Politi’s lab at Yale University. Research in the laboratory is focused on studying the tumor microenvironment of oncogene driven lung cancers and uncovering the mechanisms of resistance to drug therapies. This position is ideal for recent college undergraduates who plan to pursue a career in the biomedical sciences and would like exposure to the laboratory research environment beforehand. In this position post-graduates will learn common and useful methodologies that are practiced routinely in a molecular biology laboratory. Methods include, but are not limited to: PCR, cloning, DNA/RNA extraction, protein extraction, quantitative PCR, and cell culture. The candidate will also have the opportunity to work with and conduct research using genetically engineered mice and perform small animal imaging. In addition to practicing techniques learned during their undergraduate education, candidates will become familiar with how a research laboratory operates on a daily basis. Qualified candidates should have a Bachelor’s Degree in a scientific discipline, demonstrate a willingness and eagerness to learn many different scientific techniques, and must be motivated to learn and work independently with complex methodologies. A minimum and maximum two-year commitment is required. Candidates should send a Curriculum Vitae, a statement of research interests and career goals and the names of three references to: email@example.com.

Postgraduate position in Immunity, Autoimmune skin disease
A postgraduate associate is sought for a position in the laboratory of a Physician-Scientist at Yale School of Medicine. In this position, the candidate will learn to carry out basic science research to understand how immunity develops in health (vaccination, infection) and autoimmune skin disease. This work involves the use of mouse models, human blood and cellular and molecular immunology techniques.
The candidate will be trained to take on the following principle responsibilities: 1. Assist with mouse colony management and genotyping. 2. Perform immune cell isolation and subsequent characterization of phenotype and functional activities using a variety of techniques including flow cytometry, Elisa and Elispot assay, immunofluorescence histology and quantitative real-time PCR. 3. Assist with data analysis and interpretation. Attendance at weekly lab meetings and presentation of data generated is integral to the position.
The ideal candidate has majored in the Biological or Chemical Sciences but lacks a doctoral degree and is seeking advanced training for a defined period of time. Prior research experience is a plus, but is not required.
Interested candidates should email their CV including three references to Dr. Mary Tomayko, MD, PhD, Associate Professor of Dermatology at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are looking for a thoughtful and motivated recent college graduate, with affinity for invertebrate biology, and an interest in learning cutting-edge molecular techniques. The candidate should hold a major in a biological discipline and have experience in a biological research environment. A strong sense of responsibility and a good eye for animal health are essential.
Our work focusses on the dynamics and regulation of pluripotent stem cells, using the freshwater flatworm Schmidtea mediterranea as a model. Schmidtea mediterranea has the ability to regenerate or repair any part of its body, and can even regrow its entire brain. We study the molecular processes involved in this amazing regenerative ability, using molecular imaging, confocal microscopy, single cell RNA sequencing, and computational analysis.
Your responsibilities will include the monitoring of a novel high-tech recirculation system for animal culture and the expansion of the animal colony. Furthermore you will actively participate in the projects developing in the lab and will learn the wide array of techniques involved, including cloning, RNA synthesis, imaging techniques, and cell sorting. We offer you a dynamic start-up environment in which you will have the chance to grow and really make a difference. For more information on the lab, see our website: www.vanwolfswinkellab.org.
The position is for 1 year, extendable to 2 years, and the ideal start date is August 2017.
To apply, send a CV and a cover letter explaining your motivation to email@example.com. Also please suggest a reference who can evaluate your lab experience.
The Section of Digestive Diseases in the Department of Internal Medicine is looking for a Postgraduate Associate or Fellow for a one year training appointment.
