Tulane Center for Aging Genomics Core is seeking a postdoc with a strong background in molecular genetics and molecular biology. The postdoc will be responsible for client-based projects involving Sanger sequencing, Illumina next-generation sequencing, quantitative PCR, scRNAseq, and spatial multi-omics. Tasks include troubleshooting and documentation of omics-based assays. Specifically, pre-planning of projects, DNA/RNA isolation, quality control, and documentation of the results to aid in publication. The postdoc will provide appropriate sample setup and preparation support and execution for investigators who are seeking answers to biologically important questions and will integrate with the Tulane Center for Aging Bioinformatics and Molecular Imaging Cores to provide a seamless pipeline for sequencing and bioinformatic analysis.
