Stanford Blood Center Histocompatibility Lab has several different openings for Clinical Laboratory Scientists (technologists) to perform highly complex human histocompatibility testing for organ transplantation, including molecular typing, HLA antibody identification, and crossmatch testing including both machine and manual assays. Test specimens, analyze, interpret, and report results. Clinical test results are used directly to inform patient care decisions, with errors potentially leading to adverse events. Experience in HLA is a plus, but we will train. Reference job# 41863, 41845, 41994, or 41995.
