Research Specialist I/II Position - Requisition# 2018-9208
Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics
Department of Molecular Biology
Princeton University
 
Position Summary

The Adamson lab in the Molecular Biology Department and 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. We study cellular stress response pathways and seek to understand how coordination of these pathways control cell behavior. Our goals are to (1) systematically delineate how human cells respond to changing conditions in both normal and disease states, and therefore achieve understanding of differential response activities, and (2) identify and characterize context-specific responses. For our work, we use and develop cutting-edge experimental technologies, including CRISPR-based gene editing, genome-scale genetic screens, and single-cell RNA-sequencing. 

We seek a motivated and highly organized individual to contribute to large-scale functional genomic screens, cell and molecular biology experiments, and various support activities in the lab. One immediate goal for this technician will be setting up the Adamson wet lab. Responsibilities will therefore include ordering equipment and supplies, setting up experimental devices, and establishing organizational systems for lab reagents. In addition, this technician will be expected to contribute to research efforts and analysis of data.

The ideal candidate is one who seeks professional development and is therefore interested in reading the current scientific literature and thinking critically about experimental design. The role has great potential for the advancement of skills in sought after research technologies.

Salary will include the full benefits package. The position is open and review of applications will begin immediately. The anticipated start-date is the 1st of September 2018 or later. This will be a two-year term position, with the possibility of renewal contingent upon satisfactory performance.

Specific duties include:
  • Lab organization, including equipment and supply purchasing, reagent management and inventory, communication and negotiation with vendors.
  • Molecular biology, including DNA/RNA preparation, PCR, sgRNA cloning (individual- and library-scale), single-cell RNA-sequencing, and NGS library preparation.
  • Cell biology, including tissue culture and flow cytometry.
  • Participation in research projects, including execution of well-controlled experiments and gathering of publication quality data.
Essential Knowledge, Skills and Abilities:
  • A bachelor’s or master’s degree in biology or related field.
  • Demonstrated skills in molecular and / or cell biology.
  • Ability to work effectively in a team, clearly communicate ideas, and keep an organized and detailed laboratory notebook.
  • Ability to think critically and troubleshoot.
  • Ability to comprehend experimental work flow.
  • Meticulous attention to detail.
Preferred Qualifications:
  • Previous experience with CRISPR-Cas technologies and / or functional genomics is a bonus.
  • Experience with sequencing-based data analysis and / or basic programming is a huge plus.
  • The ideal candidate would be willing to commit to the position for at least two years.

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

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.
