Research Technician: Carnegie Institution for Science
|Organization:||The Kostova Lab
Carnegie Institute for Science
Department of Embryology
|Type of Position:||Research Tecnician|
Description & Details:
The Kostova laboratory at Carnegie’s Department of Embryology in Baltimore is searching for a full-time research technician. This is a great opportunity to work directly with a principal investigator using cutting edge technologies, and an exciting model organism (zebrafish!) to answer fundamental questions of cell biology. Ideal candidates should have a B.S. in Biology or related field, experience in modern molecular biology techniques, and a strong work ethic.
We are investigating the fundamental question of how cells respond when their ribosomes break down, and how defects in the translation apparatus lead to complex disease. The ribosome is one the most complex and long-lived molecular machines in the cell and the presence of functional ribosomes is essential to live. Ribosome damage has been recently linked to complex human diseases, such as cancer and neurodegeneration. We use cutting-edge technology, such as CRISPR-mediated genome editing to model ribosome defects in zebrafish, and map the molecular pathways that ensure ribosome integrity.
We are looking for a highly motivated individual with strong organizational skills to join our team and help explore these novel areas of biology.
