Our primary approach is to develop state-of-the-art genomic techniques to profile and perturb cell dynamics at single-cell resolution. Our long-term goal is to leverage this knowledge to develop cell-type-specific engineering tools that enhance cell population robustness or restore cell population homeostasis in response to cancer and aging-related disorders.

Will also manage maintenance and repair of laboratory equipment, and maintain reagents and supply inventory following department procedures. Job Requirements Bachelor's degree in science required. Must have experience working with mice and with pathology. Must have a minimum of one year of experience with mouse colony management, genotyping, and experiments, working knowledge of basic procedures involved in immunohistochemistry and mammalian tissue pathology, and excellent organizational and communication skills.
