Research Technician/Technologist position (USA)

A research position is available immediately in the laboratory
of Dr. Kateryna Makova, Professor of Biology, at The Pennsylvania
State University. The successful candidate will perform research and
organizational activities in the Makova Lab, which uses molecular biology,
genetics and genomics techniques to study rates and patterns of mammalian
mutations. Hands-on laboratory experience is required, with expertise
in several of the following basic molecular biology techniques: library
preparation for next generation sequencing, operating a next generation
sequencing machine (MiSeq), DNA and RNA isolation from mammalian tissues,
PCR, molecular cloning, and sequencing. The successful applicant must have
the ability to plan, execute, interpret, summarize, and troubleshoot
independent research and collaborate effectively with members of a
research team. Working knowledge of molecular evolution and population
genetics is a plus. Once hired, the successful candidate will work in
a wet lab, but will interact closely with computational biologists on
data analysis (including that of next-generation sequencing data).

Include a cover letter that summarizes relevant experience and reasons for
interest in the job, along with a CV that includes contact information
for three references (name, position title, mailing address, telephone
number, and e-mail address). This job will be filled as a level 2, level
3, or level 4, depending upon the successful candidate's competencies,
education, and experience. Typically requires a Bachelor's degree in
Biology or Molecular Biology (or a closely related field) plus several
years of lab work related experience, or an equivalent combination of
education and experience for a level 2. Additional experience and/or
education and competencies are required for higher level jobs. A
Master's degree with relevant lab experience preferred. This is a
fixed-term position funded for one year from the date of hire with
excellent possibility of re-funding. Electronically apply on Job #40333
