A full-time Research Assistant/Technologist position is available 
immediately for a highly motivated individual to work on a 
collaborative project investigating gene regulatory pathways guiding 
lipid homeostasis in the model organism C. elegans. These studies 
will facilitate an improved understanding of conserved mechanisms 
underpinning obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease in humans.

Responsibilities will include assisting with ongoing C. elegans 
experiments and performing cutting edge techniques such as RNAi, 
qRT-PCR, chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP), and robotic high 
throughput screens, as well as various DNA and protein-based assays. 
The candidate is expected to be able to work independently, as well 
as in a team setting, and be able to multi-task and work in an 
efficient and organized manner. There will be opportunities for 
co-authorship on publications.

Qualified applicants will have a B.A. or B.S. in biological or 
biochemical sciences, relevant lab experience and a strong desire to 
learn. Training will be available for advanced techniques.

We offer a competitive salary and an excellent benefits package.

Please send a CV detailing educational and research/working 
experiences and contact information for 2 references to:
