The Kaun Lab and collaborators at Brown University are hiring two molecular research scientists :
Position 1 : Research Assistant / Staff Scientist
Project focused on understanding the functional role of gene regulatory networks during development and plasticity. Experience and in-depth knowledge of molecular biology is required. Experience performing single cell transcriptomics experiments would be helpful. This is intended to be a long-term position for someone interested in working with a collaborative network of labs interested in understanding how gene regulatory networks change during development and with memory formation across species.
Major duties will include :
1) Performing molecular biology experiments including single cell multiomic experiments
2) Performing and troubleshooting molecular biology experiments
3) Performing spatial transcriptomic experiments
4) Performing biochemistry experiments
5) Collaborative bioinformatic analysis of transcriptomic and multiomic data
6) Coordinating collaborative efforts between multiple labs
Position 2 : Research Assistant
Project focused on understanding the molecular basis of addiction. Experience working with Drosophila is required. This position is ideal for someone that interested in working in a lab for 1 -2 years to gain research experience.
Major duties include :
1) Performing Drosophila husbandry and genetics
2) Performing fly brain dissection, immunohistochemistry and microscopy
3) Performing basic molecular biology experiments
4) Performing basic biochemistry experiments
For both positions, pay will be competitive for the greater New England area and will correspond to qualifications and experience. We are looking for candidates that enjoy working in a dynamic, collaborative, inclusive and interdisciplinary environment.
• Required: Bachelor’s degree in Neurobiology, Molecular Biology, Biochemistry or related science (grade 7 & grade 8)
• Required: Prior related experience or extensive coursework related to basic knowledge of laboratory approaches and techniques in the areas of neurobiology, molecular biology, genetics, and biochemistry (grade 7)
• Required: 1-2 years experience working in an organized biology research laboratory in the areas of neurobiology, molecular biology, genetics, and biochemistry (grade 8)
• Or equivalent combination of education and experience.
