A laboratory technician position is available in Dr. Liang Han’s laboratory in the School of Biological Sciences at Georgia Institute of Technology. Dr. Han’s group uses a combination of molecular genetic, immunohistochemical, fluorescence imaging and behavioral approaches to understand how the nervous system receives, transmits and interprets various stimuli to induce physiological and behavioral responses.
We are looking for someone who is collaborative, well-organized, and has experience with microbial cell biology. Your duties will involve genetic transformation (in both Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Schizosaccharomyces pombe), high-throughput fluorescence microscopy, confocal microscopy, flow cytometry, and sterile cell culture. Experience with these techniques is a plus, but is not required. The ideal candidate will also have experience with scientific programming, preferably in python, R, or MatLab.
