The full-time Research Technician will report directly to the PI (Dr. Sturley). The Research Technician will conduct research in the area of RNA splicing modulation and neurodegenerative disease; he/she/they will also assist with lab management activities in coordination with other lab members. This is an NIH-funded position for one year, with the possibility of renewal, if funds are available.
The Research Technician will participate in a funded research project in RNA splicing modulation and neurodegenerative disease under the supervision of the PI and in conjunction with the PI and his collaborators at the University of Notre Dame. Research activities will include, but are not limited to, microbial strain characterization, Genomic DNA and plasmid isolation and screening, and computational/bioinformatic analysis. The Research Technician will be encouraged and expected to contribute intellectually to novel ongoing research in the lab.
The Research Technician will also carry out lab management duties including organizing and maintaining reagents and databases, helping in general strain/sample management and archival, handling basic purchasing and bookkeeping tasks, and preparing visual aids for professional presentations, publications or grant proposals/updates. These auxiliary duties will comprise approximately 20% of the Research Technician’s responsibilities.
The research technician will be expected to perform additional duties and responsibilities as needed.
