Research description: Dr. Pamela Munster is a medical oncologist and co-director of the BRCA and Early phase clinics at UCSF. Her research focuses on the development of novel therapeutic strategies and their translation to the clinic. A key area of her research seeks to exploit epigenetic targets as a means to improve current therapeutic approaches for the treatment of cancer. The Munster laboratory is seeking to hire a full time Staff Research Associate to analyze the immune compartment of clinical samples by flow cytometry. Secondarily, this position will aide in the collection and analysis of other clinical correlate samples.
Requirements: Applicants should have minimally a BS. Applicants should by proficient in multi-parameter flow cytometry. Understanding of immunology desired. Applicants must be fluent in spoken and written English.
Begin and End Dates: The position is available immediately.
Post-doctoral inquiries: Individuals interested in our laboratory's research are encouraged to contact us (see below).
Current Post-doctoral position available: For this position, Dr. Munster seeks a dynamic and self-motivated post-doctoral fellow to further explore the relationship between cancer epigenetics and the immune system in "BRCA-like" disease and the therapeutic potential of targeting both. This individual would preferably have a strong understanding of cancer biology and immunology. This project provides the opportunity to develop a new treatment strategy, characterize the underlying mechanism, translate the regimen to the clinic, and to conduct the associated correlative clinical research.
