At the Knight Cancer Institute, we see a world without cancer. As pioneers in personalized cancer medicine, we continue to change the way the world understands and fights this disease. Work with us to develop new precision cancer therapies. Join us to create groundbreaking laboratory tests to identify unique characteristics of each patient’s tumor. Together, our efforts will provide individually tailored, compassionate care for every patient, from diagnosis through survivorship.  We are situated in Portland: the gateway to Pacific Northwest, with easy access to the Pacific Ocean and the Cascade mountain ranges. The temperate climate, no sales tax and affordable cost of living, makes Portland an ideal place to work and live.  Position Description: The Thomas Laboratory is interested in identifying the mechanisms of tumor responses to targeted therapy in cancer.
