Princeton University

Position Summary

The Shvartsman Laboratory in the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics seeks applicants for a Research Specialist I / Research Specialist II. The rank and salary will be commensurate with experience.

Our research focuses on the quantitative analysis of development. Our goal is to establish models that connect multiple levels of description, from gene sequence to pattern formation and morphogenesis. We emphasize close coupling between genetic experiments, computations, and theory, and use the fruit fly (Drosophila) as an experimental system for model validation.

The Research Specialist will provide general research support to the lab and work with the PI and other lab members to design and execute experiments, perform basic molecular biology procedures, perform confocal microscopy techniques and imaging of live and fixed embryos as well as perform image analysis, and perform other tasks in support of the lab.

Salary will include the full benefits package.  The position is open and review of applications will begin immediately.

This is a one-year term position with the possibility of renewal based on available funding and satisfactory performance.

Specific duties include:

  • Planning (with direction from supervisor), performing, and analyzing experiments.
  • Drosophila genetics.
  • Application of quantitative microscopy techniques and imaging of live and fixed embryos.
  • Basic image analysis techniques and statistics.
  • Basic molecular biology procedures including, but not limited to Western blotting, RNA-preparation, and molecular cloning.
  • Presenting data in lab meetings, external meetings, and assisting with the preparation of publications.
  • General lab tasks such as preparing buffers, maintenance of stocks, lab clean up, ordering etc.

Essential requirements/skills:

  • A bachelor’s degree in biology, bioengineering, or related field.
  • Laboratory research experience and familiarity with microscopy, basic molecular biology and biochemical procedures, and data analysis.
  • Ability to work independently as part of a larger team.
  • Strong attention to detail.
  • Ability to follow through and implement a research project.

Non-essential (preferred) functions:

  • Experience in working with Drosophila.
  • Experience with ImageJ, R, or Matlab.
  • The ideal candidate is one who seeks professional development as a scientist and is therefore interested in reading the current scientific literature and conducting an independent research project. She/he will take ownership of her/his project and work semi-autonomously under the guidance of the PI and other group members.

The final candidate will be required to pass a background check.
