The National Heart Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) is recruiting for a Flow Cytometry Core Director.  The successful candidate will serve as the director of the Flow Cytometry Core, a major component of the NHLBI Division of Intramural Research (DIR). The purpose of the NHLBI Flow Cytometry Core is to provide a broad range of cytometric techniques to investigators with diverse research interests within the DIR. These applications include cell sorting, Amnis Imagestream analysis, multiplex bead arrays for soluble cytokines and other factors, Quanterix SiMoA assays, and high dimensional immunophenotyping.  Core cytometric data needs to be collected in a manner consistent with high quality clinical investigations.  We are currently seeking a highly motivated individual who is able to lead a team of scientists to work efficiently in a multidisciplinary environment and to ensure the Flow Cytometry Core remains state of the art.
