A Research Technician position is available in the lab of Radhika Subramanian at MGH/Harvard Medical School in Boston. We are
interested in understanding how the micron-sized microtubule-based machinery required for cell division and cell signaling assemble from the collective activities of nanometer-sized proteins. In other words, they play LEGO with proteins! They use a variety of experimental tools, including structural methods, single molecule biophysics, and cell biological assays.
The candidate must have a B.S. in biological sciences or related field before starting this position. This position is ideal for a graduating student who is looking for 2-years of research experience before applying to graduate/medical school. The candidate must be familiar with general biochemistry and molecular biology techniques. Prior experience with fluorescence microscopy or image analysis would be an added benefit but not necessary.
Please contact Radhika Subramanian with your CV, names of two referees and a copy of your recent transcript. Applications will be reviewed starting April 8th.
