Research Technician Position, Ferkey Lab, University at Buffalo (SUNY)
A Research Technician position is available in the Ferkey Lab in the Department of Biological Sciences at the University at Buffalo (SUNY). For more information about our department, please see: http://biologicalsciences.buffalo.edu/. Research in our lab is directed towards understanding the regulatory mechanisms that control animal behavior. Using C. elegans sensory behavior (e.g. chemosensation) as a model, we study the regulation of G protein-coupled signal transduction pathways as well as the mechanisms by which the neurotransmitter dopamine modulates signaling and behavior.
A Bachelor’s degree in Biology or a related field is required. Applicants must be sharp, highly motivated, well organized and capable of multi-tasking. A solid understanding of genetic principles, molecular biology (especially subcloning, PCR and DNA electrophoresis) and general chemistry is essential. Responsibilities will include making common lab solutions, maintaining C. elegans strains for the lab, ordering and stocking lab supplies AND contributing to research projects. A motivated and productive individual can expect to be included as an author on publications including his/her work.
Pay will be determined based on level of experience. Please email, as a single PDF file, your cover letter, CV (including relevant courses and grades received), and contact information for three references to: email@example.com.
