We are looking for candidates with experience in developmental biology, neuroscience, or immunology, to join our team as we work to understand how dysregulated interferon signaling contributes to the pathophysiology of Down syndrome. We employ an integrated approach including functional genomics, mechanistic studies, and animal research, to make biological discoveries with clear translational potential. This is an NIH-funded position.
We are looking for a bright, highly organized, dependable, and detail-oriented person to become a full-time professional research assistant (PRA) in our group. The person who is offered this position will participate in studying how the mammalian olfactory system develops and changes based on experience. Experimental approaches used in our research include RNA sequencing, RNA fluorescent in situ hybridization, immunohistochemistry, quantitative PCR, translating ribosome affinity purification (TRAP), and mouse gene manipulation.
