Discover Your Career at Emory University

Emory University is a leading research university that fosters excellence and attracts world-class talent to innovate today and prepare leaders for the future. We welcome candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of our academic community.

Description

Due to new funding, Dr. Renee Read is hiring a new Research Specialist to work with animal models and human organoid models of pediatric glioblastomas to examine the origins of tumor stem cells and their interactions with glia in the neural microenvironment. Our research program uses a multidisciplinary approach to analyze the function of developmental cell-signaling pathways, such as the receptor tyrosine kinases in glial tumorigenesis and glial development. Our approach uses several brain tumor model systems, including human patient-derived human glioblastoma stem cells and tissues, novel human organoid tumor models, and genetic animal models of glioblastoma. Members of our lab will have opportunities to use our pre-clinical models to learn more about therapeutics, neural stem cell biology, epigenetics, functional genomics, and bioinformatics in team-oriented projects that involve collaborations with other neuro-oncology research groups in the Departments of Neurosurgery, Pediatrics, Pathology, and Human Genetics. We welcome scientists from diverse backgrounds who seek to enter this dynamic field. Applicants interested in translational research and science education are particularly encouraged to apply. This is a great position for someone with cell culture experience who is seeking a longer-term research position related to neuroscience, stem cell biology, or cancer biology. Former research specialists from the Read lab have advanced to medical school, graduate school, and research scientist positions in industry. Please see www.reneereadlab.org for more information on Dr. Read’s research program.
