PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The Cancer Research Technology Program (CRTP) develops and implements emerging technology, cancer biology expertise and research capabilities to accomplish NCI research objectives.  The CRTP is an outward-facing, multi-disciplinary hub purposed to enable the external cancer research community and provides dedicated support to NCI’s intramural Center for Cancer Research (CCR).  The dedicated units provide electron microscopy, protein characterization, protein expression, optical microscopy and nextGen sequencing. These research efforts are an integral part of CCR at the Frederick National Laboratory for Cancer Research (FNLCR).  CRTP scientists also work collaboratively with intramural NCI investigators to provide research technologies and expertise.

KEY ROLES AND RESPONSIBILITIES

We are seeking a highly motivated Scientist I to join the newly established Single Cell Analysis Facility (SCAF) of the Center for Cancer Research (CCR) at NCI.  The SCAF will house state of the art single cell sequencing technologies including 10xGenomics Chromium, BD Genomics Rhapsody, DEPPArray, and other emerging single cell technologies.

The Scientist:

  • Will interact with close to 200 laboratories within the CCR to design and carry out single cell experiments for cancer research
  • Will work on single cell isolation/preparation from various tissues and cells and related NexGen sequencing library preparation
  • Is expected to author publications in peer reviewed scientific journals
