A Technician/Research Assistant position is available in the Hobert lab at
Columbia University, College of Physicians & Surgeons, New York City (see
Departmental homepage: http://cpmcnet.columbia.edu/dept/gsas/biochem/).

My lab studies the development of the nervous system using the nemtode
C.elegans as a model system. We are applying genetic and molecular
biological techniques to investigate how neural circuits are generated
within the nervous system (check the lab's Research Interests:
http://cpmcnet.columbia.edu/dept/gsas/biochem/faculty/hobert.html).

Applicants should at least have a bachelor degree and have some experience
in routine molecular biological techniques (PCR, gel electophoresis, DNA
subcloning etc.). Previous experience in C.elegans is beneficial but not
necessary. The successful applicant will be in charge of general lab
operations, such as maintaining lab stocks and ordering supplies as well as
performing routine techniques such as DNA microinjection and DNA
subcloning. Apart from routine operations, the successful applicant will be
actively participating in ongoing research projects in the lab. The
successful applicant will work in a very stimulating environment and is
expected to be highly motivated. An ability to work independently, to have
good organizational skills, and to work well with people are essential
prerequisites. Experienced Research Assistants as well as recent graduates
who are interested in gaining research experience, are encouraged to apply.
