The Castellano laboratory at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai is recruiting! We are recruiting a full-time Associate Researcher (research technician) to start Spring/Summer 2021. Our laboratory’s research focuses on understanding how interactions between the blood/immune system and the brain influence the degree to which the brain ages and becomes susceptible to neurodegenerative disorders like Alzheimer’s disease. The successful candidate will join an energetic team that uses sophisticated methods, including parabiosis, in-vivo microdialysis, and next-generation sequencing (bulk, single-cell, etc) to answer questions related to disorders of memory and cognitive function. The candidate will have the opportunity to work on an independent project and to collaborate with other laboratories across the Ronald Loeb Center for Alzheimer’s Disease and the Friedman Brain Institute. This is a great opportunity to gain skills and mentorship before applying to graduate or medical school.
The ideal candidate is independent and well-organized with a B.S./B.A. or M.S. in biological sciences, Neuroscience, or related disciplines. Work will include conventional molecular biology and in vivo methods, including mouse handling and husbandry, behavioral testing, DNA cloning, viral-mediated gene transfer, and immunohistochemistry.
Previous experience in a laboratory setting with basic laboratory expertise is required, including rodent handling and basic molecular biology techniques, e.g., PCR). Interested candidates should send a cover letter, a CV, and contact information for 2-3 relevant referees. Please click the “Join the lab” tab at Castellanolab.org for more details.
