Employment Status:AF : Active : Regular : Full Time
Job Summary 13;
A Research Technician III is required for a newly established lab that combines technology development of pooled genome:wide CRISPR based perturbation screens and additional high throughput genomic approaches towards applications for mechanistic studies of early and late onset neurodegenerative diseases. The lab is part of the Raymond G. Perelman Center for Cellular and Molecular Therapeutics (CCMT) and the Department of Genetics at the University of Pennsylvania (UPenn). The CCMT fosters a multidisciplinary approach among researchers and scientists working to discover new gene and cell therapies in search of cures for debilitating and life threatening disorders.
Dr. Shalem was one of the pioneers in using the new exciting CRISPR genome:editing technology for genome:wide pooled screens and continues to develop novel screening and high:throughput approaches for studying protein quality control pathways and disease mechanisms of neurodegeneration.
The successful applicant with work closely with Dr. Shalem and graduate students in the lab and will be an integral and essential part of the lab. She/He will be trained in a range of techniques including molecular biology, cell culture, cell biology, high:throughput screens, genome editing, stem cell and differentiation protocols, next generation sequencing and data analysis.
Previous experience in biological research is required. Candidates with some computational background including R, Python and unix would be preferred. Self:motivation, and a keen interest in learning new techniques is a must
