Job Description

Research Technician - Molecular Biology and Microbiology, School of Medicine-18001338

This is a grant funded position and is not eligible for severance pay.

The faculty in MBM are united by a common interest in the biology of microbes (bacteria, fungi, viruses, and parasites) and the effects of microbes on human and animal hosts. The microbial pathogens program studies microorganisms that cause infectious diseases, with emphasis on rigorous analysis of these pathogens and the immune responses that restrict them. Program investigators direct detailed studies of pathogenic bacteria, viruses, fungi and eukaryotic parasites. Research topics include structural analysis of virus entry, viral evolution, viral oncogenes, intracellular bacterial pathogens, microorganisms that cause diarrhea and pneumonia, intracellular signaling, pathogen adhesion, genetic determinants involved in susceptibility to infection, vaccine development, and identification of novel antimicrobial agents.

The position will involve a blend of clinical study coordination and laboratory based research. Duties will include: enrollment of research subjects, database management, performing bench laboratory experiments to support the clinical research project. The successful candidate must be personable and extremely well organized and should have a BA or ScB in a scientific discipline. Training will be provided for both the clinical and laboratory based research, but prior experience with study coordination will be strongly favored.

Basic Requirements:

  • Up to 1 year prior lab experience and BS or BA in a Biological science.
Preferred Qualifications:
  • Consistent attention to detail and excellent organizational and communication skills are critical.
  • Previous experience with study coordination or working with microbiology and/or molecular biology and/or bioengineering techniques are preferred but not required.

Special Work Schedule Requirements:
Work hours may vary due to the nature of the experiments being performed.

An employee in this position must complete all appropriate background checks at the time of hire, promotion, or transfer.
