Research Scientist 2
Requisition ID req20113
Working Title Research Scientist 2
Position Grade 12
Position Summary

A Research Scientist II position is available immediately to assist in the investigation of mechanisms of target organ metastatic specificity, notably to the brain in the laboratory of Dr. Dario Marchetti (http://cancer.unm.edu/member/dmarchetti/ ). Unique scientific opportunities are presented for deciphering the biology and therapeutic utilities of Circulating Tumor Cells (CTCs) directly isolated and characterized from cancer patients - “seeds” of fatal metastatic disease. This position relates to highly impactful and innovative programs of translational cancer biology using cutting-edge concepts and technologies.

This position will be responsible for managing scientific projects/experiments in cell, molecular, and translational biology of CTC metastatic specificity interplaying with dormancy and quiescence; and involving the use of human CTCs/cell lines, pre-clinical CDX models, and clinical samples reflective of disease status under minimal supervision. Specifically, it is expected that this position will provide significant intellectual input into the design, execution, and analysis of research projects and scientific outcomes of the projects independently.

The University of New Mexico Comprehensive Cancer Center is the Official Cancer Center of New Mexico and the only National Cancer Institute-designated Cancer Center in a 500-mile radius. Its 146 board-certified oncology specialty physicians include cancer surgeons in every specialty (abdominal, thoracic, bone and soft tissue, neurosurgery, genitourinary, gynecology, and head and neck cancers), adult and pediatric hematologists/medical oncologists, gynecologic oncologists, and radiation oncologists. They, along with more than 600 other cancer healthcare professionals (nurses, pharmacists, nutritionists, navigators, psychologists and social workers), provide treatment to 65% of New Mexico’s cancer patients from all across the state and partner with community health systems statewide to provide cancer care closer to home. They treated 13,578 patients in 105,748 ambulatory clinic visits in addition to in-patient hospitalizations at UNM Hospital. A total of 1361 patients participated in cancer clinical trials, including 544 (40%) patients who participated in clinical trials testing new cancer treatments that include tests of novel cancer prevention strategies and cancer genome sequencing. The more than 102 cancer research scientists affiliated with the UNMCCC were awarded $36.2 million in federal and private grants and contracts for cancer research projects. Since 2015, they have published 930 manuscripts, and promoting economic development, they filed 136 new patents and launched 10 new biotechnology start-up companies. Finally, the physicians, scientists and staff have provided education and training experiences to more than 530 high school, undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral fellowship students in cancer research and cancer health care delivery.
