Positions

The following positions are currently open in the Eischen Lab:

Postdoctoral Fellows

The Eischen laboratory needs motivated postdoctoral fellows to join our team. Postdoctoral fellows should be interested in molecular, biochemical, or genetic mechanisms of tumor development and/or survival with the goal of identifying vulnerabilities in cancer cells.

Project 1 is focused on anti-apoptotic Bcl2 family members and their contribution to B cell lymphoma survival and drug resistance. Cell based assays, biochemistry, mouse models, and computational biology approaches are used.

Project 2 is an investigation of a novel compound that targets Mdm2 for degradation. Molecular mechanism of action and its effects on p53-inactivated cancers.​ Cell-based assays, biochemistry, and mouse models are used.

Project 3 is the evaluation of proteins and non-coding RNA we recently identified as likely have a significant role in cancer development, growth, and/or survival.  Cell based assays, biochemistry, mouse models, and computational biology approaches are used.

Interested individuals should send their CV and the project they are interested in pursuing to Dr. Eischen at christine.eischen@jefferson.edu. Applicants must be currently approved to work in the U.S. and be skilled in cancer biology techniques (e.g., cell culture, mouse modeling, biochemistry, flow cytometry, etc.). Preference will be given to applicants that are NIH training grant eligible.

Graduate Students

The Eischen laboratory is recruiting motivated graduate students (PhD and MD/PhD) who want to learn to join our team.  Interested individuals should email Dr. Eischen (christine.eischen@jefferson.edu) to arrange a meeting.

Research Assistants and Experienced Research Staff

A funded cancer research lab seeks self-motivated researchers for three positions. 

 

1. Research assistant with a Bachelor’s degree in a biological science and 6 years experience in at least three of the following: cell culture, molecular biology, biochemistry, flow cytometry, and/or tumor studies in mice in a research laboratory.  The research assistant must have outstanding organizational and communication skills, be detailed oriented, be able to multi-task, and work well with others.  Working with mice is required.  The candidate must be able to work in a fast-paced environment and contribute to multiple areas of the lab, assist trainees, and perform experiments individually and as part of a team. 

2. Seeking a self-motivated individual excited about science and wanting to contribute at a high level to cancer research.  A Master’s degree or Ph.D. in a biomedical science and at least 8 total years of experience in an academic biomedical research laboratory is necessary.  Experience in three of the following areas is required: molecular biology, biochemistry, tissue/cell culture, flow cytometry, and/or mouse research.  The candidate must have outstanding organizational and communication skills, be detailed oriented, the ability to multi-task, and work well with others.  Individual will be required to perform experiments in a fast-paced environment, assist in organizing and maintaining aspects of the laboratory, and perform other general lab duties.  Individual will also assist in training junior staff, postdoctoral fellows, and students and aid them in their experiments. 

3. Individuals who have at least a year of biomedical research experience who want to learn mouse genetics and cancer modeling and treatment in mice. The candidate must be able to work in a fast-paced environment and contribute to multiple areas of the lab and perform experiments as part of a team.
