A Research Technologist Level I position is available in the Fox Lab in the Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine at the PSU College of Medicine in Hershey, PA. The technician will assist the Principal Investigator in conducting pre-clinical research on behavioral and neural mechanisms underlying the effects of drugs of abuse, including opioids. Studies to be performed will test the effects of these drugs on behavior and brain reward circuits by using behavioral models, e.g., self-administration and drinking, and by using genetic and molecular biological techniques, e.g., in situ hybridization, immunohistochemistry, virus-medicated gene manipulations, etc. The position will involve extensive small animal handling, small animal surgery, behavioral testing, sample collection and analysis.
The successful candidate will have excellent fine motor and visual skills, time management skills, and the ability to follow instructions and work independently. Experience working with mice is preferred but not required. It is preferred that the candidate will have a bachelor’s degree in Biology, Molecular Biology, Neuroscience or any other related field. Some experience with rudimentary data management is essential. A high level of technical aptitude is preferred, as most projects require extensive use of computers, data management software, and electronic devices. Interested candidates are welcome to contact Dr. Megan Fox at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This position typically requires a Bachelor’s degree or higher plus 1 year of related experience or an equivalent combination of education and experience.
This is a limited-term position funded for one year from date of hire, with possibility of refunding.
