Description & Details:
The Saxena lab is accepting applications for a Visiting Research Specialist. Successful candidate will conduct research by growing, crossing, and maintaining zebrafish (Danio rerio); making DNA constructs for transgenic expression; injecting and selecting for transgenic zebrafish lines; documenting research activities in preparation for publication. Additionally, there is an opportunity to plan and conduct experiments as part of a team and thus earn authorship on resulting publications. Current NIH-funded projects focus on the mechanisms of developmental neurogenesis and their conservation during adult neurogenesis, including in the context of Alzheimer’s disease. We offer a collaborative, collegial, and team-oriented working environment, a laser-like focus (microscopy pun intended) on advancing and supporting your career goals, cutting-edge research techniques, and an ideal location for exploring both Chicago’s dynamic cityscape and the natural beauty of the nearby Upper Midwest.
Bachelor’s degree in biological sciences required.
