Open Positions at the Dinulescu Laboratory
We are currently seeking candidates for the following positions. If you are interested, please familiarize yourself with the Research Activities page of the site, and send your cover letter and CV to Daniela Dinulescu, Ph.D. More information can be found by clicking the listing title below.
  • Research Assistant I and II, Cancer Biology
    The Division of Women's and Perinatal Pathology at the Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School seeks a highly motivated individual to fill an immediate opening for a Research Assistant position in the Cancer Biology field.
    Current projects include investigating the contribution of cancer stem cells to mechanisms of tumor resistance and relapse following therapy. We strive to develop novel strategies for selectively targeting stem cells in ovarian cancer and we are quickly translating our discoveries from the laboratory bench to the bedside. Our current studies focus on better understanding the mechanism of Notch signaling in the maintenance of the cancer stem cell niche and ovarian tumorigenesis (McAuliffe S et al. Proc Natl Acad Sci USA 2012; Morgan S et al. Cell Cycle 2013). Furthermore, we are working on developing better vehicles for therapy delivery by harnessing the power of nanotechnology (Paraskar S et al. Proc Natl Acad Sci USA 2010; Sengupta P et al. Proc Natl Acad Sci USA 2012). We are uniquely positioned and well prepared to carry out these studies, which are part of a strong interdisciplinary collaborative effort at Harvard Medical School and MIT to develop improved "homing" technologies for the delivery of therapeutic agents specifically targeting and sensitizing ovarian cancer cells, including cancer stem cells, in a spatio-temporal fashion.
    Qualifications:Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts in a biological science is required, with prior experience in genetics and/or molecular and cellular biology techniques.

  • Postdoctoral Fellowship, Cancer Biology
    An exciting Cancer Biology Postdoctoral Fellowship is available in the Division of Women's and Perinatal Pathology at the Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School.
    Current projects include investigating the contribution of cancer stem cells to mechanisms of tumor chemoresistance. We strive to develop novel strategies for selectively targeting stem cells in ovarian cancer and we are quickly translating our discoveries from the laboratory bench to the bedside.

    Qualifications:A recent Ph.D. and lead authorship of major publications are required in addition to prior experience in genetics, molecular and cellular biology, and/or animal models of cancer.
