The Thyme lab uses zebrafish as a model system to understand mechanisms underlying psychiatric and neurodevelopmental disease. See an example of recent work at https://www.biorxiv.org/content/10.1101/360677v2. We also utilize protein engineering techniques to build tools to assist with our zebrafish studies. Job duties include experiments potentially utilizing the following techniques: molecular biology (PCR, cloning), biochemistry (protein purification), bacterial directed evolution, zebrafish genome-editing, zebrafish line maintenance, antibody staining, RNA in situ analysis, high-resolution imaging, high-throughput larval behavior, drug screens, and transcriptomics (bulk and single-cell RNA-seq). Responsibilities will include collecting, organizing and reporting research data under minimal supervision; assisting in the design of experiments; maintaining laboratory supplies and equipment; instructing others in basic laboratory techniques; collecting and summarizing data; monitoring results; reporting unusual outcomes. Necessary skills include organization, critical thinking, communication skills, standard lab notebook practices; attention to detail.
Required: BS or BA degree in the field of biological sciences (or will possess by June 2021), with preferably a year or more of relevant research experience. Research in the area of zebrafish neurobiology, molecular biology, or protein biochemistry will be preferred. DM me on twitter for more information.
To initially apply, please send your CV + a brief description of why you are interested in our lab and how your experience has prepared you for this position (cover letter or in email body). Official application link will follow if you pass a first screening. A lack of response providing the official link within a couple of weeks will indicate that you are unlikely the right fit for the position.
Hourly Pay Range: $15-17 / hr
Start dates between November 2020 and June 2021 are acceptable.
