Job Title Research Assistant, Developmental Neurobiology
Laboratory / Department Developmental Neurobiology
Our research focuses on the development of laminar architecture in cortical regions of the developing mammalian brain. In particular, we are interested in mechanisms of fate specification during early steps of brain development and in the vast cellular migrations that occur in later periods of development.
The Research Assistant will perform work with induced pluripotent stem cells to contribute to exciting projects related to neurodegenerative disorders of the cerebellum. Will also be responsible for mouse husbandry, including checking vaginal plugs, monitoring pregnant animals, weaning and culling newborn animals, ear punching as needed, and colony maintenance. Will also maintain animal tracking software, carry out genotyping and make solutions.
Bachelor's degree in science required. Experience performing cell culture, working with stem cells, and performing animal colony maintenance preferred. Must be willing to work with mice. Must be detail-orientated and computer literate. Training in additional necessary skills will be offered by the lab as needed.
