The Weinstein Lab at the University of Chicago is a dynamic research group jointly affiliated with the Department of Medicine’s Section of Genetic Medicine and the Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering. We work on creating cutting-edge technologies for the visualization and analysis of genetic complexity in multicellular systems. Our most recent work has been the development of a new imaging modality, DNA microscopy, that uses DNA, instead of light, as an imaging medium to achieve spatial-genetic imaging of ‘idiosyncratic’ biological specimens, such as tumors and lymphatic tissue. Our lab consists of an interdisciplinary team of researchers with interests and expertise spanning physics, molecular biology, and computational math. We have a keen interest in extending spatial-genetic imaging to address deep and open questions in immunology, cancer biology, and neuroscience.
We are seeking a Senior Research Technologist with a background in molecular biology interested in working with us on DNA-based technology development. This position provides a unique opportunity to work with both members of our group and others at the Departments of Medicine and Molecular Engineering on DNA sequencing and tissue work, using both vertebrate and invertebrate animal models.
Minimum qualifications: BS or equivalent in molecular biology or an adjacent field in the life sciences or engineering; 2+ years of molecular biology lab experience.
Preferred qualifications: MS or equivalent in molecular biology or an adjacent field in the life sciences or engineering; experience in sequencing workflows and common bioinformatics tools.
