A research technician position is available in the Buelow Lab in the Department of Molecular Genetics at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York. We use the small nematode C. elegans to study the genetics of nervous system development (http://www.aecom.yu.edu/home/molgen/faculty/buelow.html) and are particularly interested in the functions of the extracellular matrices and how they impinge on establishing neuronal connectivity. To this end, we are using a combination of biochemical, genetic and, analytical approaches.
We are seeking a highly motivated individual with a Bachelor’s degree in biology or related sciences with interest in genetics and a willingness to work in a team. Tasks include microinjections of nematodes, genetic experiments, standard molecular biology (PCR, molecular cloning, etc.) and, general lab maintenance. Prior experience with worms are a plus but not required. For more information, please contact Hannes Buelow (email@example.com).
