The lab of Dr. Scott Armstrong, Chair of the Department of Pediatric Oncology, and the Center for Pediatric Cancer Therapeutics are seeking outstanding applicants for a Lead Research Technician to support our pre-clinical research activities. Our research focuses on identifying new treatment approaches for pediatric patients with cancer. The laboratory uses a variety of genomic, epigenomic, and chemical biology approaches to characterize the mechanisms that control pediatric cancer development and identify new therapeutic targets. The lead research technician will work with in vivo models of pediatric cancers to validate new therapeutic candidates for leukemias and solid tumors. The candidate will interact and collaborate closely with other laboratory-based scientists across the Center, Armstrong lab and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
