The Biomarker Research Program at the Houston Methodist Research Institute is led by Dario Marchetti, PhD, a renowned cancer biology expert who has made key discoveries in the biology and clinical use of circulating tumor cells (CTCs). Under Dr. Marchetti’s leadership, the Biomarker Research Program is developing multidisciplinary research programs to address clinical challenges in cancer, immunotherapy, neurology, cardiology and other areas
The Biomarker Research Program seeks candidates for the Assistant and/or Associate Professor level on the unmodified track (independent investigators). Qualified candidates are expected to have an excellent track record in research, demonstrated by peer-reviewed publications, grant support, and other academic recognition. Particular attention will be given to candidates working in biomarker research, toward clinical interest in cancer, immunobiology, neurosciences or cardiology, using advanced techniques, such as CTCs, ctDNA, exosomes and other liquid biopsy tools. Responsibilities include establishing independent, extramurally funded research programs, supervising/mentoring lab personnel and interacting with the scientific community to develop translational research programs.
State-of-the-art lab space and highly competitive start-up funds are available.
We seek candidates who embrace and reflect diversity in the broadest sense.
