Designing & conducting experiments: Perform SCNT, in vitro embryonic cultures, gene editing and helping to promote scientific efforts focused on xenotransplantation and analysis of chimeric embryos. Studies will be undertaken to address the following:
1) SCNT of animal model systems 2) Gene editing 3) In vitro culture analysis of early embryos 4) Molecular biology (RNA/DNA, qPCR, transfections, etc.) 5) Animal studies 6) Morphological analysis
Researcher will be expected to: -Participate in the design, implementation, and evaluation of research studies -Train and supervise data collection personnel -Design, organize, and implement project database -Analyze data -Collaborate on reports and publication of findings
Documenting Experimental Data Detailed documentation of procedures and experimental data is expected. This involves analyses of data, writing summary reports on results of work and discussing results with laboratory colleagues and the Principal Investigator. You will be required to present an independent review of relevant scientific literature for ongoing projects and discussions of possible new experimental approaches with laboratory colleagues and the principal Investigator. In addition, you will be required to present regular presentations of scientific data and significant contribution to the preparation of manuscripts.
M.S. or Ph.D. (Embryology, Molecular Biology, Histopathology, or related discipline is preferred). Outstanding expertise in transgenic technologies, somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT) in large animals, and molecular biology required.
Research experience in SCNT, transgenesis, developmental biology, and molecular biology laboratories and solid experience in skeletal muscle and cardiovascular research, metabolomics, and proteomics, as demonstrated by multiple research publications in major journals in these fields are required.
Special consideration will be given to individuals with expertise using SCNT and transgenic technologies.
Preference will be given to applicants with demonstrated experience developing scientific protocols and scientific writing.
