The Opportunity:

As a member of the Cancer Immunology team within the Biology Department, you will:

* Contribute to cutting-edge discovery research with unique RAS pathway inhibitors.

* Conduct experiments to assess how the tumor microenvironment (TME) is altered immunologically with RAS(ON) Inhibitors, including:
* Understanding how IO (Immuno-Oncology) agents synergize with RAS(on) compounds in the TME in pre-clinical studies.

* Hypothesis-driven studies of IO mechanism of action in vitro.

* Demonstrated experience in executing and interpreting data from lab experiments.

* Analyze experimental data and present results at internal meetings.

* As a member of RVMD Research team, you will have the opportunity to collaborate extensively with biologists, chemists, pharmacologists, and data scientists to generate novel insights into key drivers of RAS-addicted cancers.

Required Experience, Skills, and Education:

* Current biosciences, bioengineering, or biochemistry undergraduate or graduate student.

* Completed general coursework in organic chemistry, biology, and biochemistry/molecular/cell biology.

* Prior laboratory experience in a relevant research area would be an advantage. For example:
* Laboratory experience with cellular immunology techniques (e.g., flow cytometry, cell culture, immune-phenotyping, ELISpot, multiplex cytokines, etc.).

* Hands-on experience with molecular and cell biology techniques.

* Background in cancer biology and immunology.

* Demonstrated experience in executing and interpreting data from lab experiments.

* Bioinformatic/statistical tools such as R would be highly advantageous.

* Detail-oriented with excellent record-keeping and organizational skills.

* Enthusiasm for learning new techniques and applying them to benefit cancer patients.
