This position is for an NIH, foundation, and/or university-funded SRA I. Research in the Ala Moshiri, M.D., Ph.D. Laboratory, investigates the genetic basis of mammalian eye development, including biochemical signaling. Our projects explore hereditary gene mutations responsible for retinal disease, with emphasis on specific retinoid (vitamin A) transport proteins.
The SRA in this position will provide standard technical support and perform experiments under close supervision that involve: bacterial and molecular genetics, recombinant protein expression and purification in E. Coli, protein analysis by PAGE and Western blotting, mouse colony maintenance, tissue culture, DNA transfection, and biochemical analysis. The SRA will also be responsible for repairing and maintaining laboratory equipment and infrastructure and stocking certain supplies. These and other highly specialized research techniques are required for our projects.
Demonstrated skill and experience with molecular biology.
Experience with molecular cloning.
Experience with lab chemicals, reagents, and instrumentation.
Familiarity with protein analytical methods.
Mathematical skills are required to perform routine calculations and prepare chemical solutions.
Demonstrated ability to recognize problems and consult with the Principal Investigator.
Skilled in communicating and cooperating with others and working in a team environment.
Demonstrated skills to keep organized notebooks and records in a fashion that others can easily understand and utilize.
This position may be subject to a criminal background investigation, drug screen, Live Scan fingerprinting, medical evaluation clearance, and functional capacity assessment.
