Dear Arabidopsis community,

In addition to a postdoctoral position, we have an immediate opening for a Research Technician/Lab Manager.  Please forward the following advertisement to anyone who might be interested in.



Research Technician position – Arabidopsis molecular and developmental genetics
Department of Biology, University of Washington, Seattle

A research technician position is available immediately in the Keiko Torii lab at the University of Washington (http://faculty.washington.edu/ktorii).  A successful applicant will assist our ongoing genetic screen of stomatal patterning mutants, protein gel-blot analysis, plasmid construction, generation and selection of transgenic plants, genetic crosses, and phenotypic characterization of the mutants/transgenic plants.

The applicants must be meticulous, highly organized, motivated, can work independently as well as a team, and must like to take care of plants on a daily basis.  The primary duty includes help other scientists in the lab and ‘run’ the lab smoothly, such as soiling and watering Arabidopsis, maintenance of oligonucleotide/plasmid database and seed and chemical stock inventory in the Torii lab, and training of undergraduate lab assistants.  A previous experience as undergraduate lab aides is required, and experience in PCR and DNA-gel analysis is preferred.

The position is secured for one year, with additional 1~2 years of extension based on the performance and funding availability.  Therefore, the position is highly suited for recent college graduates who wish to have strong research experience before heading onto the graduate career in related disciplines.  The Torii lab provides a vigorous research training in the highly visible research area, and our former/current technicians have first-authored and/or co-authored research manuscripts in first-rate journals, including Nature, Development, Developmental Biology, and Plant Physiology.

This is a full-time position with benefit, including Medical/Vision/Dental Insurance and retirement, according to the University of Washington guidelines.  Due to the type of appointment, the candidate must be a US citizen/permanent resident

Please send your CV (resume), a copy of transcripts (alternatively, grade points of courses in chemistry and biology), and phone number/e-mail/address of two references to:
