Associate Professor Andrea L. Graham seeks a Research Specialist to join her laboratory in the Department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology at Princeton University. The Graham Group’s research interests include immune cell and parasite dynamics within hosts, parasite transmission between hosts, and, more generally, the evolutionary ecology of immunity, infection, and disease. The group mostly studies mammalian hosts, both in the lab and in the field.
The responsibilities of the Research Specialist will include: laboratory workspace optimization; planning and execution of experiments, including sampling of animals in long-term studies; development and execution of immunoassays; cell culture; optimization and deployment of flow cytometry protocols for analysis of cell subpopulations; extraction and analysis of DNA and RNA; supervision of technical aspects of undergraduate projects; curation of field sample collections; and laboratory management (e.g., providing safety and technical training for new personnel, ordering supplies, preparing reagents, and arranging maintenance and repair of equipment).
