A research technician position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Gaurav Varshney. We are looking for a highly motivated, passionate, and independent individual with excellent interpersonal skills to play a key role in advancing the lab's mission.
We are focused on tackling the huge challenge of systematically validating the flood of human candidate disease genes identified in various genome- wide association (GWAS) and whole-exome sequencing studies by developing disease models in zebrafish.
The successful applicant will use zebrafish, and the emerging genomic technologies such as CRISPR/Cas9, single-cell genomics to understand the disease pathology of candidate disease genes. Our research interests span multiple disciplines: genetics, genomics, molecular biology, and developmental biology.
A BA/BS or MS degree in Biological Sciences or related field with experience in Molecular Biology/Genetics is required. Experience with zebrafish is desirable but not essential.
Please send your application to email@example.com along with your CV and a list of three references with their contact information.
The Varshney lab (http://varshneylab.omrf.org) is located in the Genes & Huma Disease Research Program at the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation (OMRF) (http://omrf.org), Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. OMRF is an independent, not-for-profit, biomedical research institute adjacent to the campus of the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center (OUHSC) in Oklahoma City. OMRF investigators enjoy close scientific interactions with OUHSC faculty and participate in OUHSC graduate programs.
