Histotechnologist

With the advent of genomic sequencing, we can finally decode and process our genetic makeup. We now have more data than ever before but providers don't have the infrastructure or expertise to make sense of said data. Here at Tempus, we believe the greatest promise for the detection and treatment of cancer lies in the deep understanding of molecular activity for disease initiation, progression, and efficacious treatment based on the discovery of unique biomarkers.

We're on a mission to connect an entire ecosystem to redefine how genomic data is used in clinical settings. We're looking to build a laboratory operations team who are passionate and focused on developing state of the art techniques from sample processing to creating and interpreting vast amounts of genomic and molecular data. Histotechnologists will collaborate with product, research, and business development teams to develop the most advanced platform in cancer care.

What you’ll do:

  • Preparation of both unstained and routine hematoxylin and eosin stained slides from formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue blocks
  • Preparation of hematoxylin and eosin stained slides from fresh frozen tissues as well as collecting scrolls of the same tissues for sequencing
  • Maintain laboratory equipment and perform troubleshooting in an independent fashion
  • Approach work with safety and diligence and follow safety requirements of the laboratory
  • Performs routine assignments without specific guidance
  • Reliably produce quality finished product
  • Perform daily duties in accordance with standard operating procedures and study protocols
