This position will assist the ICCB-L Director in advising screeners and overseeing staff involved in all stages of the ICCB-L workflow, including HTS assay development, laboratory automation, data analysis and annotation, website management, implementation of facility policies, and database software development. The Assistant Director will also be expected to assist with preparing grants and progress reports. This position will have a high degree of independence, direct and indirect responsibility for multiple staff members, opportunities to present at regional and national scientific symposia and workshops, and opportunities to develop collaborative relationships with HMS investigators.
Candidates should hold a Ph.D. in cell biology or a related field, and have experience with a wide variety of cell biology, biochemistry and molecular biology techniques. Excellent command of written and spoken English is essential, as are strong organizational and interpersonal skills. Direct experience with HTS and cell-based assays is strongly preferred.
