The Department of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics seeks a full-time laboratory technician to support a research program studying skeletal development in zebrafish. We seek an experienced candidate with detailed knowledge of standard molecular biology techniques including gel electrophoresis, PCR, plasmid DNA isolation, preparation of DNA and RNA from tissue samples, and in vitro transcription of RNA. Experience with more advanced techniques, such as preparation of libraries for next generation sequencing, is desirable but not required. The ideal candidate will readily learn new techniques and be able to trouble-shoot protocols. While previous experience with zebrafish or other live animals is not necessary, the applicant must be prepared to learn the required techniques and comply with relevant regulations for safely and humanely working with laboratory animals. This is a grant-funded position.

Required Skills

1-3 years of experience post graduation and Bachelor's degree required.

We are an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law. We are a VEVRAA Federal Contractor.
