This position is well suited for a trainee preparing for a research path. The associate will participate in experimental studies of variation in resistance to environmental radiation as part of an NIH-funded project. The associate will measure differences among nematode isolates in their developmental and population-level responses to radiation exposure. Job responsibilities include maintaining nematode worm populations; preparing media; organizing and conducting experimental assays; participating in data analyses; and contributing to the laboratory’s culture of scientific discourse at weekly lab meetings. The initial appointment will be for one year, with the possibility of continuing beyond that timeframe.
Projects in the Rockman lab focus on the relationship between the molecular, cellular, and developmental mechanisms that generate phenotypes and the population- and community-level factors that shape variation and evolution of those phenotypes.
