Marine Biological Laboratory, Woods Hole, MA: Postdoctoral Scientist - Genome editing in rotifers

(posted 2017-12-30)


Position Summary: The Marine Biological Laboratory seeks a motivated Postdoctoral Scientist to join the laboratories of Kristin Gribble and David Mark Welch. The successful candidate will develop genome editing techniques, including CRISPR/Cas9, in rotifers, a novel aquatic invertebrate model system for studies of aging, neurobiology, developmental biology, ecology, and evolution. Specific goals of the project include designing guide RNAs, optimizing microinjection methodologies, phenotyping and genotyping mutant strains, and screening genes of interest.

Applicants should have a Ph.D. in biology, cell/molecular biology, biochemistry, or a related field. This position requires proficiency in basic molecular biology techniques, microscopy, microinjection, and CRISPR/Cas9 methodology. We are seeking an independent, organized, enthusiastic, and productive individual with robust problem solving skills. Excellent written, verbal and interpersonal skills, attention to detail, and a strong work ethic are essential.
