We are seeking a recent graduate (BS) to join our NSF funded research program as a research technician in our laboratory. Work will involve biochemical, biophysical, chemical, and molecular biology approaches to validate small molecule inhibitors as potential probes to study bacterial cell wall metabolism. A background in biochemistry or chemical biology with some laboratory experience is preferred. Responsibilities will include conducting protein-ligand interaction studies, investigating gene expression changes in genetically and chemically inactivated proteins, assist in supervision of undergraduate researchers, engage with collaborators, and general lab management.
This is a temporary appointment that will run until August 31st, 2021 with the possibility of an additional two-year renewal.
The principal responsibilities for the Research Technician include, but are not limited to the following:
1. Assist with microorganism culture (aerobic and anaerobic), antimicrobial screening assays, cloning, protein expression, qPCR, and in vitro enzyme assays
2. Perform protein expression, characterization, and analysis
3. Perform biophysical studies to measure protein-ligand interactions
4. Perform data analysis and maintain accurate records of results and methodologies
5. Assist with preparation, purification and characterization of small molecule inhibitors
6. Assist in the purchase of laboratory supplies and oversee lab maintenance
7. Responsible for assisting in the supervision of undergraduate research assistants in the lab.
8. Perform additional related duties, as assigned
This position is best filled by an individual with a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, or Chemical Sciences. The Research Technician should demonstrate attentiveness to detail and possess strong organizational, communication, and interpersonal skills. The ability to gather, interpret, analyze and report data; effectively manage time, prioritize and follow through; schedule and complete multiple projects with varied schedules; and work both independently and as a part of a team is required.
