City: Seattle

State: WA

Country: United States

Type: Full Time

Experience: Mid Level

Job Summary:

This opening is for a scientist to use NanoString tools to address key questions in immuno-oncology. A major component of the role will be to develop application datasets that can be used to show the utility of the DSP platform to address key outstanding questions. This will include working with a cross functional team to define the project, generating and analyzing the data, and preparing the results for dissemination as slide decks, technical notes, and/or peer reviewed publications. In many instances, this will involve leading and executing collaborations with academic investigators who have access to the samples. A second component of this role will be to use NanoString gene expression profiling technology to interrogate clinical sample cohorts accessed through collaborations to identify molecular predictors of response to IO therapy and characterize mechanisms of action of therapeutic agents. This work will leverage the existing signatures that describe components of immunobiology (including the Tumor Inflammation Signature, a predictor of response to pembrolizumab described in Ayers JCI 2017) and also develop novel signatures. This work may ultimately lead to the development of diagnostic assays that could be deployed clinically to guide patient treatment decisions. This will involve working with the investigators to design the study, processing the samples, analyzing the data, presenting the work to the collaborator, and working with the collaborator to present the data through posters, presentations, and publications.

Essential Duties:

  • Perform DSP (IHC-like) profiling of tissues, including staining, selection of regions of interest, and quantitative analysis of data
  • Purify DNA, RNA, miRNA, and protein from FFPE tissue sections, frozen tissue samples, cryopreserved cells, and biological fluids (e.g. whole blood or plasma) and perform molecular profiling using nCounter reagents
  • Analyze data with the NanoString nSolver package and custom analysis tools
  • Interpret experimental findings and place in context of current state of the field
  • Stay up-to-date with relevant literature and lead/participate in scientific discussions  
  • Maintain excellent lab records, participate in weekly lab meetings, communicate with collaborators by email, phone, and in person, work closely with a team of scientists and technicians to achieve goals

 

Requirements:

  • Ph.D. in immunology, oncology, cell biology, molecular biology, or related disciplines
  • 2+ years industry and/or 5+ years post-doctoral experience
  • Hands on experience with histology and molecular biology
  • Familiarity with a statistical analysis package is strongly preferred but not required
  • Ability to work both independently and as member of a project team
