Available Positions

The Raleigh laboratory places a premium on education, mentorship and training. Thus, graduate student positions are always available. Projects are individualized according to student's experiences and interests, and graduate students work side-by-side with Dr. Raleigh at the bench during their rotation. Potential projects include, but are not limited to, identification and characterization of genes involved in brain tumor pathogenesis, either using (i) biochemical and molecular techniques, (ii) informatic analysis of clinical and sequencing data from human samples, or (iii) a combination of all of the above. 

 

Position Title: Postdoctoral Fellow

Positions Available: 2

Description: Postdoctoral fellowship positions are available, and highly motivated individuals with doctoral or medical training from broad scientific backgrounds are being recruited. Potential projects include identification and characterization of genes involved in rare brain tumors, meningioma, and Hedgehog-associated cancers; investigation of the biosynthesis and trafficking of ciliary lipids that activate the Hedgehog pathway; creation of clinical biomarker assays to stratify patients with medulloblastoma and meningioma; and development of molecular therapy for medulloblastoma and meningioma patients.

Application Information: Please send current CV and cover letter to Dr. Raleigh at david.raleigh@ucsf.edu

 

Position Title: Laboratory Technician

Positions Available: 2

Description: Laboratory technician positions are available, and highly motivated individuals from broad scientific backgrounds and experience levels are being recruited. Prior laboratory experience is not required, but a strong foundational undergraduate experience is preferred. Laboratory technician responsibilities may include cell culture, mouse colony maintenance, molecular biology, biochemistry, cell biology, immunofluorescence and light microscopy, ordering and organizing laboratory supplies, and mouse surgeries, depending on applicant experience and interest. Over the past two years, all laboratory technician trainees from the Raleigh Laboratory have secured positions within graduate training programs at UCSF.

Application Information: Please send current CV and cover letter to Dr. Raleigh at david.raleigh@ucsf.edu

 

Position Title: Mouse Technician

Positions Available: 1

Description: Individuals with experience maintaining mouse colonies and genotyping mice are being recruited. Mouse technician responsibilities may additionally include stereotactic injection to establish intracranial xenographs, pharmacologic treatment by gavage and intraperitoneal injection, mouse surgeries and sample preparation, and ordering and organizing laboratory supplies, depending on applicant experience and interest.
