Open Positions

Professional Research Assistant - Bates Lab

The Bates lab has an opening for a Professional Research Assistant. The successful candidate will help us use mouse and fly genetics to answer questions about how ion channels impact development. Some projects include understanding how in utero exposure to CBD impacts brain development and or vaped nicotine impacts fetal bone development. We also ask basic science questions about how ion channel function impacts BMP signaling in flies and mice. We look forward to curious individuals joining our collaborative team to answer questions about developmental biology.
