Preclinical Studies

The Laboratory for Synthetic Immunity (LSI) is an interdisciplinary research group in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech & Emory School of Medicine. Founded in 2014 by Director Dr. Gabe Kwong, the mission of LSI is to pioneer the next wave of immunotherapies and diagnostics to intercept diseases at an early stage and develop treatments that drive deep responses to meaningfully improve patient outcomes.

We are currently seeking multiple exceptional individuals to join our research group as a Research Technician - Preclinical Studies in Atlanta, GA. The candidate will be a motivated technician with a strong desire to contribute to the design, execution, and interpretation of results of various preclinical in vivo studies in rodent models of cancers as they relate to the development of biosensors for early cancer detection. The individual may work on multiple projects in parallel at various stages of development.

The successful candidate will thrive on teamwork and collaboration. They will embrace a fast-paced environment and work closely with lab members to cultivate a positive and inclusive environment.  This is a unique opportunity to join a well-funded research group with a track record of academic excellence, breakthrough innovation and technology translation to assist in developing and implementing pharmacology techniques and procedures in animal models of cancer (e.g., biofluid collection, injections, necropsy, tumor inoculation, imaging).

An example of the work performed may include providing husbandry support: breeding, genotyping, selection, and maintenance of multiple animal colonies, performing culture, characterization, and manipulation of human cancer cell lines. Supporting preclinical activities, studies and lab management-maintaining supplies, reagents, and cells may also be included.
Documenting the design, methodology, and results of experiments and participation in internal project meetings with team members may also be part of the statistical analyses.
