Temporary - Lab Technician - Requisition# 2018-9088
Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics
Princeton University

Position Summary

The Ayroles Lab at Princeton University is looking to hire a lab technician. Our group takes a multi-disciplinary approach to investigate the genetic basis for variation in complex traits addressing broad questions in evolutionary and medical genetics. The technician will contribute to ongoing research investigating how the microbiome influences evolutionary processes using Drosophila. Through experimental evolution, we test if and how the microbiome facilitates adaptation to stressful environments.

This is a casual hourly position of approximately 30 to 40 hours/week. The expected timeframe of this position is October 2018 through February 2019. Review of applications will begin immediately. Salary will be commensurate with experience.

Responsibilities may include:

  • Applying molecular biology and microbiology techniques.
  • Drosophila maintenance, crossing, and screening.
  • Participation in experimental design and execution of experiments.
  • Participation in group meetings.
  • Other lab duties as assigned.

Qualifications:

Applicants for this position should have experience in at least one of the following areas:

  1. Drosophila husbandry (stock maintenance, crosses)
  2. Basic microbiology (bacterial culture, sterile technique)
  3. Basic molecular techniques (DNA/RNA extractions, PCR)

Most importantly, the applicant should have strong organizational skills and attention to detail. 

How to applyApplications should be submitted online at the Princeton University's Careers Website (Requisition No. 2018-9088)*  Applications should include CV as well as a brief statement describing previous research experiences and their interest in this position.

Research Specialist I Position - Requisition# 2018-8964
Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics
Princeton University

Position Summary

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.

Responsibilities

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.

Requirements

  • Bachelor’s degree in biology or a related field.
  • Background in molecular biology or genomics.
  • Experience with cell lines.
  • Experience working with insects or Drosophila.
  • Excellent communication and organizational skills as well as a strong attention to detail.
  • Ability to troubleshoot and optimize protocols, and manage projects.Linkit
  • Capacity to work both independently and collaboratively.Linkit
  • The final candidate will be required to pass a background check.
