The Bar-Peled Lab of Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center at Harvard Medical School is accepting applications
for a Research Technician position. The laboratory studies the cellular response to altered metabolic states in multiple cancer
models. Specific studies relate to discovering druggable vulnerabilities in genetically defined cancers and elucidating the
mechanisms of reactive oxygen species in cancer growth using cutting edge chemical proteomic technologies. More about
their research can be found at: barpeledlab.org.
Dr. Bar-Peled seeks exceptionally motivated candidates who enjoy conducting research and involving themselves in the
dynamic environment of the laboratory. She or he will have the opportunity to become fully involved with all the steps of
research being completed in their laboratory, often working directly with Dr. Bar-Peled, which will lead to numerous
publications. Investigators in their laboratory will present at regular laboratory meetings and will be encouraged to attend talks conducted by scientists visiting the Harvard Medical School campus. The experience gained in the lab will be very helpful for pursuing a career as a researcher or physician. Exceptional technicians may have a further opportunity to engage in their own primary research project.
College degree with a preference in biology, molecular biology, chemistry, or biochemistry is preferred. Candidates with a
strong computational background are also encouraged to apply. 1-3 years of research experience is highly recommended.
The ideal candidate will be detail-oriented, organized, and able to work independently as well as part of a team in a fastpaced
evolving environment. Excellent communication and organizational skills are necessary.
