Position Available at Union Biometrica
Union Biometrica, Inc. (http://unionbio.com/) is a leader in automated dispensing and analysis of Drosophila melanogaster, Caenorhabditis elegans, and Danio rerio. Our first product for D. melanogaster research, the COPAS 1000DF sorter and dispenser, was released in December 1999. Since then, we have introduced a family of systems aimed at the research and drug-discovery community. New advances in our technology allow organisms in culture arrays to be re-analyzed for fluorescence or other characteristics (such as growth). Why wait? Join our team of scientists and engineers as we develop fluorescence based instrumentation and associated in vivo assays.
-D. melanogaster Biology-
The position will focus on developing disease model organisms adapted to the COPAS Technology Platform that can be used in drug discovery and basic biomedical research. The scientist will develop tools for automation of all aspects of Drosophila research. Many of these tools/model organisms will involve the use of novel fluorescent proteins.
We are looking for an energetic and focused scientist with at least 2 years of postdoctoral training. The individual must have a strong background in D. melanogaster genetics and molecular biology. Experience appropriate to the project would include familiarity with standard mutant phenotypes, carrying out genetic crosses, establishing transgenic strains, and use of fluorescent reporters and microscopy skills. Interest in cutting edge instrumentation is required.
We offer highly competitive salaries and a broad benefits plan that includes free medical insurance and a company-matched pension plan.
For consideration, please send (email or FAX) a copy of your curriculum vitae plus a brief summary of prior research experience to: Leonard Marchionni, Chief Operating Officer (email:lmarch at unionbio.com), Union Biometrica, Inc., 35 Medford Street, Suite 213, Somerville, MA 02143.
We look forward to hearing from you. Union Biometrica is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
