The Tigano Laboratory at Mitocare is recruiting!
We are looking for an enthusiastic, scientifically curious Research Technician to join our new team at the Thomas Jefferson University Center for Mitochondrial Imaging Research & Diagnostics.
In the Tigano laboratory, you will perform foundational research in the field of mitochondrial disorders: genetic, progressive and often inherited pathologies that manifest when mitochondria fail in their principal task of producing energy. A specific focus is on the way in which mitochondrial dysfunction alters innate immune signaling and inflammation and how these factors modify the course and severity of disease.
Your research will provide answers to some of the highest priority questions in the field such as:
Why do patients sharing the exact same mitochondrial mutations differ in the severity and overall presentation of disease?
What are the cellular mechanisms that lead to worsening of disease with time?
How can we leverage this knowledge to discover and develop new treatments?
To answer these questions, we will use cutting-edge genetic approaches such as genome-wide CRISPR screenings, proteomics and transcriptomics analyses, disease mutation modeling and state-of-art cellular imaging. For recent college graduates in the biological sciences or related fields, this provides a unique opportunity to gain hands-on research experience that will prepare you and improve your application for graduate or medical school.
Our ideal candidate is motivated, meticulous and well-organized. This is a full time position and we are looking for a commitment of at least 2-3 years in the lab, during which you can expect to be included as author of scientific manuscripts.
Any previous experience with molecular biology (DNA, RNA, protein analyses), human tissue culture, and standard laboratory techniques (solution making) are greatly welcome, but unconventional experience will be taken into consideration. The most important qualities are an eagerness to learn and be mentored and, because you will be part of a small team, a willingness to communicate openly. Everything else will be taught.
Interested candidates should send a cover letter, a CV, and contact information for 2-3 relevant references to firstname.lastname@example.org
