Research - Laboratory/Non-Laboratory, Staff/Administrative
We are seeking an enthusiastic Research Technician to join our diverse group and support (i) discovery projects focusing on epileptic zebrafish models developed here in our lab (Baraban et al. Neuroscience 2005; Baraban et al. Nature Communications 2014; Griffin et al. Brain 2017; Griffin et al. Commun. Biol. 2021) and (ii) interneuron-based cell transplantation therapies based on embryonic progenitors (Baraban et al. PNAS 2009; Hunt et al. Nat. Neurosci. 2013; Casalia et al. Ann. Neurol. 2017; Casalia et al. J. Neurosci. 2021). Under direct supervision the primary focus of the work will involve assisting/supporting translational epilepsy research.
These National Institutes of Health (NIH)-supported projects include: (i) studies of larval zebrafish models for genetic epilepsies; (ii) using immunohistochemistry and imaging techniques to study cell transplantation; (iii) genotyping of mice and zebrafish and (iv) sophisticated behavioral assays.
Additional responsibilities will include general lab maintenance, placing orders, and maintaining the aquaculture facilities and mouse colonies.
