<x-flowed>Lab technician, University of Texas at Austin

We are currently initiated a NSF funded project to explore the evolution of
physiological adaptation in Arabidopsis thaliana.  The goal of the project
is to identify and characterize genes underlying naturally-occurring
variation in drought adaptation using genome-wide molecular techniques.

A two-year lab technician position associated with this project is
available at UT Austin. We are looking for a highly motivated individual
with a M.S or B.S degree and with the demonstrated ability to manage labs
and carry out research.  The individual will be responsible for
implementing experiments and high-throughout genotyping of plant material,
as well as upkeep of lab equipment, ordering lab supplies, and training
students in the lab.  The successful candidate must have experience in
genotyping and a strong background in molecular biology. Preference will be
given to candidates with the some of the following skills including DNA and
RNA extraction from plant tissue, experience with robotics in PCR setup,
DNA sequencing, and SNP genotyping.  We also emphasize the ability to
interact and work collaboratively with others, as the technician will work
closely with post-docs, graduate students, and undergraduate researchers.

Application review begins immediately and will continue until the position
is filled. Applications should include a brief cover letter outlining
qualifications and interests, curriculum vitae, and the names and email
addresses of three references. Send applications to
