The Hansel Lab is a research laboratory situated in the Department of Pathology at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU). Our research focuses on the development and progression of bladder cancer with an especial interest in the role of mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) signaling and its regulation of cytoskeletal changes and invasion.Our laboratory uses a combination of human tissue, in vitro, human ex vivo, and mouse models to delineate signaling pathway changes and impact on cellular behavior. Identification of mTOR targets in this setting will be used to develop new biomarker approaches to bladder cancer detection and new targeted approaches to arrest bladder cancer cell growth.
The Staff Scientist will be the laboratory lead in support of the lab's projects including assisting in the development and overview of study design and execution, co-authoring manuscripts and assisting with supervision of team members. Responsibilities include:

As the state's only health and research university, OHSU brings together patient care, research, education of the next generation of health care providers and scientists and community service to improve the health and well-being of all Oregonians.The university is a conduit for learning for more than 2,800 students, providing training to interns, residents and fellows in postgraduate medical and research. It is the only place in Oregon that grants doctoral degrees in medicine, dentistry and nursing. OHSU cares for more than 251,000 patients each year from around the region and takes a leadership role in contributing to solutions involving the health of the state and the nation, such as health care access and transparency, ethics and workforce shortage. Beyond providing critical health care services, quality education and cutting-edge research, OHSU also is a key economic and social force in the Northwest. With an annual operating budget of $2.06 billion and more than 14,000 employees, OHSU is Portland?s largest employer. Its size contributes to its ability to provide... many services and community support activities not found anywhere else in Oregon. For more information visit http://www.ohsu.edu/xd/about/index.cfm
