Assistant, Associate, or Full Project Scientist in the Division of Gynecologic Oncology - Orsulic Laboratory
University of California Los Angeles

Requisition Number: JPF09179
The Orsulic Laboratory at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) is currently accepting applications for a Project Scientist at the Assistant, Associate or Full Project Scientist level. Aligned with the UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine and the Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center, this role will be overseen by Professor Sandra Orsulic, PhD, a faculty member in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology in the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA.
We are seeking a candidate who will bring significant and innovative contributions to the study of ovarian cancer initiation. The primary focus will be on understanding the role of ciliated cells in fallopian tube transformation, along with the implementation and testing of methods aimed at minimizing genotoxic stress and preventing cancerous transformation. The research will involve a comprehensive approach, encompassing in vitro, in vivo, and computational analyses.
Applicants must possess a Ph.D. degree or equivalent in a basic science field. A strong background in human and mouse fallopian tube pathology is required, along with expertise in molecular biology, RNA and protein analyses, cell-based studies, organoid assays, live-time imaging, in vivo assays, aseptic surgery in mice, microscopy, immunohistochemistry, FACS analysis, computational image analysis, statistical analyses of bulk RNA seq and single-cell RNA seq data, and spatial profiling analyses. The ability to quickly adapt to emerging technologies in spatial profiling and apply new computational pipelines is preferred.
The selected candidate will collaborate closely with Professor Orsulic and other collaborators on research projects. The successful candidate will also mentor trainees within the laboratory to analyze data, independently write and submit manuscripts, and contribute to the preparation of grant applications, SOPs, and IACUC and IRB protocols.
Salary will be commensurate with the qualifications of the successful applicant.
