GENERAL SUMMARY OF POSITION:
The Kaufman laboratory in the Department of Molecular, Cell, and Cancer Biology at the University of Massachusetts Medical School is searching for a Research Lab Technician candidate for a new NIH-funded project. We will be studying the interplay of proteins involved in genome organization and genome stability, using molecular, cell biological and genomic methods. A competitive salary and excellent benefits package will be provided commensurate with experience.
The Research Technician will contribute directly to the central research programs of the laboratory. They will perform gene depletion and deletion experiments to analyze the functions. We are particularly interested in chromosomal proteins involved in the three-dimensional organization of the human genome and defense mechanisms against genotoxic stress. Molecular mapping of active domains and biochemical experiments to explore mechanisms will follow. In addition to experimental duties, the Research Technician will contribute to laboratory organization and stock maintenance.
Under the supervision of the Principal Investigator or designee, the Research Laboratory Technician I, performs a variety of specimen preparatory techniques, dry lab data collection, and routine laboratory maintenance.
