Senior Research Assistant Position (Dr. Joe Gray's Lab)
Become a member of a vibrant research team under supervision of Principal Investigator Dr. Joe Gray, an internationally renowned cancer and genomic scientist in the Biomedical Engineering Department and the Knight Cancer Institute. Apply advanced imaging based high-throughput RNAi and small molecule analyses to identify changes in cellular signaling networks that accompany cancer progression and drug resistance. Participate in broader research efforts, including continued development of the cell microarray based techniques, cytochemical assay development for imaging cytometry based analyses and application of these cytochemical assays to analyses of clinical samples to dissect pathways regulating cancer progression and drug sensitivity.

Postdoctoral Researcher (Dr. Xiaolin Nan's Lab)
At the OHSU Center for Spatial Systems Biomedicine (OCSSB), we have an immediate opening for a post-doctoral researcher to work on microscopic imaging, image analysis, and visualization methods to integrate image data from breast cancer-related signaling networks in cells at electron microscopy (EM), super-resolution microscopy (SRM), and conventional fluorescence microscopy (FM) spatial scales.
The broad project goal is to allow architectural analysis of the nanoscale molecular assemblies that regulate information flow in cells. The postdoc will specifically focus on algorithm development to register information from the different imaging scales and modalities, to automatically detect and segment signaling assemblies and structural features, to link structural features to phenotypic or biological readouts, and to use advanced visualization techniques to present the analysis results to biologists on the project. In this multi-disciplinary project, the postdoc will work closely with biologists, chemists working on the labeling methods, microscopy experts from academia and industry, and computational scientists on the analysis methods.

Cardiovascular Development Postdoctoral Positions (Dr. Sandra Rugonyi's Lab)
The laboratory of Dr. Sandra Rugonyi hasa postdoctoral fellow opening to work on projects related to cardiovascular development.
Candidates considered for this position must have:
i) strong background in mechanics and cardiovascular principles (flow, pressure, tissue strains/stresses);
ii) lab hands-on experience in imaging, measuring blood flows and/or blood pressures (experience manipulating embryos or small organisms is a plus);
iii) strong data analysis skills; and iv) intellectual curiosity. PhD in a relevant field is required. Candidates must also have a demonstrated ability for independent research, strong written and oral communication skills, and the ability to work as part of a collaborative team. Experience in cardiovascular mechanics is not required but it is preferred, however, a strong desire to perform advanced research in cardiovascular development is a must.
