The Singhvi Lab seeks a Research Technician, Grade I-II. Our laboratory aims to understand molecular mechanisms by which glia, which are about half the cells in the nervous system, impact sensory perception, neuron shape and physiology, neural circuit activity, memory formation and animal behavior. The lab’s primary experimental model is C. elegans and we employ a multi-disciplinary approach including molecular (genetic networks, genomics, transgenics, protein biochemistry), cellular (fluorescence, super-resolution or electron microscopy; functional imaging of neural activity), and animal behavior studies.
Working with the PI, the technician will conduct both research and lab management duties including:
The successful candidate will be highly motivated, organized, detail-oriented and focused. S/he will be able to multi-task between lab duties and scientific research, and be a good team player. Candidates who commit for two years or more are preferred.
This position affords the motivated technician opportunity to master advanced techniques in molecular neuroscience, along with laboratory management training. Tentative start date is 3/1/2018.
