The Kocher Lab at the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics is looking for a full-time molecular technician to help us study the mechanisms shaping variation in social behavior. Our group combines functional genomic tools with field and lab studies in insects to understand the genetic and environmental factors that shape variation in behavior.
This position offers the opportunity to learn and implement cutting-edge genomic techniques. The ideal candidate is someone seeking professional development as a scientist and excited to develop new laboratory skills and fine-tune molecular protocols.
Salary will include the full benefits package.
Review of applications will begin immediately. The position will start as soon as possible.
This will be a one-year term position, with the possibility of renewal contingent upon continued funding and satisfactory performance.
Your primary role in our group will be to independently generate genomic datasets in bees and other insects with varying forms of social behavior, including: DNA and RNA libraries and ChIP-seq data. You will also be expected to work with insect cell lines. Other responsibilities will include participating in group meetings, assisting with general laboratory maintenance and monitoring/ordering supplies, and keeping an inventory of laboratory samples.
