Research Assistant | Laboratory of Molecular Neuro-oncology in New York, NY
"RNA is the driving force of biological complexity, determining which genes any given cell expresses at specific times and under specific circumstances. Darnell developed high-throughput sequencing and crosslinking methods to investigate how RNA binding proteins (RBPs) modulate gene expression. He discovered neuron-specific RNA-binding proteins in the mammalian brain, and studies their link to intellectual function and human disease."
We need an experienced laboratory animal technician to help maintain our animal colony and work with our biologists. Must be comfortable working with laboratory animals, understand genetic breeding strategies, timed matings, and all aspects of mouse husbandry. Excellent chance to learn cutting edge neuroscience and molecular biology techniques including sophisticated brain dissections, optogenetics, stereotaxic injections, CLIP, RNA-sequencing, and animal behavioral and vocalization studies.
Animal husbandry, including:
- Setting up matings, weaning and genotyping
Bachelor's degree required
Must be comfortable handling mice
Ideal applicant will be:
Extremely organized and self motivated to ensure proper maintenance of important animal lines
Familiar with basic molecular biology and biochemical techniques (with emphasis on working with RNA and protein), including immunoprecipitation, qPCR, gel electrophoresis, and western blotting is encouraged but not required
