A Research Technician position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Jingli Cao at Weill Cornell Medical College, Cornell University in New York City from November 2018 or soon thereafter. The Cao lab is located in the newly established Cardiovascular Research Institute (CVRI) and the Department of Cell & Developmental Biology (https://cvri.weill.cornell.edu). We aim to understand the basic mechanism of innate tissue regeneration by focusing on heart regeneration. The lab uses a combination of the zebrafish model, explant tissue culture, high-throughput sequencing, chemical screening, live imaging, and genome editing approaches (such as CRISPR/Cas9).
This position offers mentoring opportunities and opportunities for co-authorship on published manuscripts. A bachelor’s degree and laboratory research experience are required. Prior experience in the zebrafish model or developmental biology is a plus. Candidates with interests in regenerative biology, heart disease, and zebrafish research are encouraged to send a cover letter, a CV, and a list of three references to firstname.lastname@example.org.
