At St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, we know what can be achieved when the brightest scientific minds face the fewest barriers. That’s why we provide world-class facilities, state-of-the-art technologies, and extraordinary support for your research to ensure scientific progress is never halted from a lack of resources.
The St. Jude Protein Production Facility provides protein expression and purification services to support the translation of discoveries in molecular and cellular biology to chemical and structural biology. The facility offers state-of-the-art technologies for protein expression/purification from bacterial, insect cell and mammalian systems. The facility has worked with many St. Jude investigators, expressing and purifying almost 2,000 different proteins for use in structural and biochemical characterization, high-throughput screens, and use as reagents or antigens. The facility aims to help investigators obtain pure proteins for biochemical assay and structure determination for the development of new anti-cancer and anti-infective drugs.
Contributing to our mission of finding cures and saving children, the Protein Production Facility at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is looking for an experienced researcher to join the facility as a Sr. Research Technologist or Research Laboratory Specialist to provide support and assistance to different departments and investigators at SJCRH.
The successful candidate would have advanced experience in bacterial, insect and mammalian cell protein expression, manage a wide range of research projects, maintain efficient laboratory operations and perform other duties with minimal supervision as assigned in order to meet the goals and objectives of the facility. Experience in mammalian cell culture protein expression and protein purification is highly desirable.
Bachelor's degree in appropriate scientific field is required.
