Research Specialist position
Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics
The Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics seeks applicants for a Research Specialist I/II to join the laboratory of Joshua Rabinowitz. The rank will be commensurate with experience. The anticipated start-date is the 1st of December 2016 or later. Our lab aims to obtain a quantitative understanding of metabolism at the cellular and whole body level. To address these questions, we develop and employ high resolution mass spectroscopy methods for use in conjunction with isotopic tracers, modern genetic tools and advanced computational approaches. These techniques are applied in several model systems, including mammalian tissue culture, yeast, and most recently, genetically engineered mice.
Specific duties include:
Maintaining the lab infrastructure, organization, and management, including:
- Ordering/restocking supplies.
- Basic maintenance of lab equipment.
- Organizing/coordinating lab administration, e.g. organizing lab cleanups, group meetings, etc.
- Training new lab members on proper lab protocols.

- Bachelor's degree in related field, or equivalent experience.
- Strong attention to detail.
- Experience in lab management.
- Willingness to train and technically support undergraduates, graduate students, and postdocs.
- Excellent communication and organizational skills.
- Experience in mass spectrometry, chemistry, or biology.
- Experience with basic molecular biology techniques.
- Experience working with mice and/or tissue culture cells.
