RESEARCH ASSISTANT POSITION IN MOLECULAR NEUROBIOLOGY AT THE
UNIVERSITY OF ROCHESTER
Applications are invited for a full-time Research Assistant position
in the group of Dr. Raphael Pinaud, Department of Brain and Cognitive
Sciences, University of Rochester. Work in our lab is focused on the
molecular and cellular mechanisms of experience-dependent plasticity
in the visual and auditory systems. We aim to characterize the
molecular machinery and cascades that are impacted by sensory
processing and learning, and memory formation. In addition, our group
aims at establishing causal links between experience-regulated
molecules and the physiology of neural circuits and behavior. For
more information visit <http://www.pinaudlab.org>http://www.pinaudlab.org .
The principle responsibilities of the Research Assistant will be to
conduct standard molecular biology techniques (e.g., cloning, PCR,
genotyping), tissue preparation for histology (cryostat sectioning),
in-situ hybridization and immunocytochemical procedures. In addition,
the Research Assistant will be involve in some behavioral work,
animal breeding and will provide organizational support for the lab
(e.g., day-to-day ordering of equipment and laboratory maintenance).
The ideal candidate will have rigorous training in molecular biology,
in-situ hybridization and immunocytochemistry, in addition to
histological routines. Experience with viral vectors, proteomics and
surgical procedures are a plus, but not a requirement. Applicants
should have a BSc/MSc/PhD in Molecular and Cell Biology or other
relevant discipline, be interested in neurobiology, have a strong
work ethic, and have previous experience with methods in molecular
biology. Ability to work and communicate within a team is a must.
This full-time position is available immediately. A 1-year commitment
is required but a 2-year commitment is strongly preferred. Salary
will be commensurate with experience and competitive benefits are
provided. Applications will be reviewed immediately and continue
until the position is filled. Candidates should e-mail a short letter
of interest, a detailed CV with a summary of research experiences,
and the names and contact information of three referees, to Dr.
Raphael Pinaud, Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences,
University of Rochester, Rochester, NY, 14627. E-mail:
