Description

The Department of Radiation Medicine and Applied Sciences (http://radonc.ucsd.edu) within the School of Medicine at the University of California, San Diego is committed to academic excellence and diversity within the faculty, staff, and student body and is seeking an Assistant Project Scientist to join a growing team of project scientists.

The Project Scientist makes significant and creative contributions to a research or creative project in their academic discipline. The appointee possesses the subject matter expertise and the creative energy necessary to function at a high level of competence. The appointee will participate in activities to increase, improve, or upgrade competency.

Although the Project Scientist is expected to work independently under the general guidance of an academic member with an independent research program (i.e., Professor), the incumbent is not required to develop an independent research program or reputation. The incumbent will carry out research or creative programs with supervision by an individual in an academic title that carries with it automatic Principal status. Project Scientists may not serve as a Principal Investigator but may serve as Co-Principal Investigators with members of the Professor or Research Scientist series.

University and public service are encouraged but not required, and they do not have formal teaching responsibilities. Appointments duration vary depending on the length of the research project and availability of funding.

Candidates must have a PhD or its equivalent and have experience in peptide synthesis, ratiometric flourescence imaging analysis and mouse tumor modeling expertise.

Candidates with Postdoctoral or equivalent experience, mentorship and research training service will be preferred.
