The Marc and Jennifer Lipschultz Precision Immunology Institute (PrIISM) and the Human Immune Monitoring Center (HIMC) are hiring a Research Program Director of Technology. This is a unique opportunity to bring together your expertise in molecular and cellular profiling and the development of related technologies, with a desire to collaborate directly with the world's leading researchers in diverse areas of biomedical science.
PrIISM is led by Dr. Miriam Merad and is a part of the Mount Sinai Medical Center, the largest hospital system in New York City. The highly integrated structure of Mount Sinai's departments, institutes and clinical divisions provides a unique environment for cross-disciplinary scientific and medical collaborations between basic scientists and clinicians. Mount Sinai fosters an ideal atmosphere for technological innovations aimed at addressing 21st century biomedical challenges.
PrIISM is particularly invested in the development of new technologies that will advance our understanding of the fundamental immunological mechanisms of human diseases; and their diagnosis, prevention and treatment. PrIISM scientists have recently devised new approaches for multiplex immunohistochemistry (MICSSS), protein bar-codes and spatial functional genomics (Pro-Codes and Perturb-map) and a multi-omic clinical decision platform for myeloma treatment.
As Research Program Director of Technology, you will support the successful operation of the HIMC and lead PrIISM scientists and HIMC technicians in the development and application of innovative new technologies and methodologies for deep immune cell profiling to understand human disease and improve immunotherapy strategies. The ideal candidate will be able to identify unmet or unrecognized technology gaps that limit the scientific and clinical questions we can address, highly motivated to develop new methods to fill these gaps, and facilitate their use by PrIISM's clinical trialists and experimentalists to uncover new biology and for clinical discovery. Roles & Responsibilities:
- Focus on development of new technologies, protocols, bioengineering approaches and assays that enable analyses of the complexity and heterogeneity of the immune system across diverse clinical conditions.
- Lead the use of cutting-edge technology platforms (flow and mass cytometry, single cell sequencing, spatial transcriptomics, serum profiling, multiplex imaging and spatial transcriptomics) in the HIMC.
- Facilitate the timely and responsive communication of updates on existing and new technological advances to PrIISM scientists.
- Participates in the development and implementation of ongoing quality improvement activities as per policies and protocols.
- Driving the preparation of grants, financial activities and contracts that support the range of technologies available within the HIMC and PrIISM.
- Performs other related duties.
