Research Specialist I/II Position - Requisition# 2019-10897
Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics
Princeton University

Position Summary

The Amodeo Laboratory in the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics seeks applicants for a Research Specialist I / Research Specialist II. Our research focuses on cellular decision making in the early embryo. We seek to understand the control of the mid-blastula transition and zygotic genome activation using single embryo microscopy, biochemistry, molecular biology, and genetics in the fruit fly, Drosophila.

The rank and salary will be commensurate with experience. 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:

  • Design and execution of experiments.
  • Fly genetics.
  • Application of confocal microcopy techniques and imaging of live and fixed embryos.
  • Basic image analysis techniques.
  • Basic molecular biology procedures including, but not limited to Western blotting, RNA-preparation, and molecular cloning.
  • Participation in shared lab chores.

Essential requirements/skills:

  • A bachelor’s or master’s degree in biology 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 plan and manage 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. The Research Specialist will take ownership of their project and work semi-autonomously under the guidance of the PI and other group members.

This position is subject to the University's background check policy.

Research Specialist I/II Position - Requisition# 2019-10784
Princeton University

Position Summary

The Akey Laboratory in the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics seeks applicants for a Research Specialist I / Research Specialist II. We study the evolutionary, functional, and phenotypic consequences of DNA sequence variation in yeast, dogs, and humans. We leverage a wide variety of experimental methods including DNA and RNA sequencing, functional genomics (such as ChIP-Seq), and gene editing.

We seek a motivated and highly organized individual to contribute to large-scale functional genomics and various support activities in the lab. One immediate goal for this technician will be helping to set up the Akey wet lab in newly renovated laboratory space. 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.

The rank and salary will be commensurate with experience. 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 may include:

  • Lab organization, including equipment and supply purchasing, reagent management and inventory, communication and negotiation with vendors.
  • Molecular biology, including DNA/RNA preparation, PCR, single-cell RNA-sequencing, and NGS library preparation.
  • Cell biology, including tissue culture and flow cytometry.
  • Participation in research projects 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 biology and / or genomics.
  • 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 library prep in next generation sequencing experiments.
  • Experience with sequencing-based data analysis and / or basic programming is a huge plus.

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