I am posting the following position announcements for Dr. Patricia
Latham, Department of Pathology, at George Washington University (GWU),
in Washington, DC. If you are interested in the positions, please
contact her directly: platham <@t> mfa.gwu.edu. Applicants should already be
located in the DC area.
One position is funded for development of a histopathology core lab in
the GW School of Biomedical Sciences. This lab will be expected to
provide tissue processing, sections, routine and special stains and
immunostaining to meet the needs of researchers at GWU, primarily in the
Biomedical sciences, but all departments will be invited to submit
tissues. This person will need to work independently to deliver
excellent quality results in a timely manner from the get-go. The person
should have good managerial skills, since there will be a need to
maintain inventory and to keep track of the flow of specimens and
charges. Ideally, the person would have an entreprenurial spirit since
the success of the lab will determine its future existence. The position
is assured for 2 years, but it could grow to full-time, if the lab does
The second position is not available quite yet (but very soon) and this
person must also be a qualified histotechnologist with experience. This
is a contract position at half-time to provide a service to a Pharma
project - now scheduled through May 2015. The work involved for the
contract will be very limited to a select number of routine stains and
one immunostain. However, the person will need to be entering data into
an audit-trail database and to maintain meticulous records and
interdepartmental communications on a limited but international scale.
There will be significant time not involved in the contract work for
research projects that I intend to pursue. It would be ideal for someone
wanting to take an advanced degree or to get involved in biomedical
research. This person will be more like a research assistant, except for
the contract obligations.
