Research - Laboratory/Non-Laboratory, Staff/Administrative
The department is looking for a highly motivated, enthusiastic and organized Lab Assistant 3 to assist in our aims in studying postnatal neurogenesis (100% effort). We are trying to define regulators in various neurogenic niches of the postnatal mammalian brain. In this role you will help our team characterize molecular factors and elucidate their role in controlling neurogenic mechanisms using transgenic mouse models.
The Lab Assistant (Lab Assistant 3) will assist in characterization of transgenic mice. Key experiments will include mouse husbandry, genotyping brain tissue dissection, processing, and cryosectioning. In conjunction with this, the position will require performing immunohistology, microscopy, image analysis and documentation, preparation of common laboratory reagents, contribute to general lab maintenance, and some RNA-related work such as in situ hybridization such as the RNAScope assay. Occasionally the staff member performs other techniques as needed and will participate in lab meetings and departmental seminars. . We have a large research group in shared space so good communication skills, tolerance for feedback, and a positive attitude are important. We are a passionate, energetic group and hope to find someone who is very eager to learn and shares our commitment to the exciting work we are doing. In return, you will receive the opportunity to work on the leading edge of basic neuroscience research.
