We seek a highly motivated and organized individual to join our efforts to investigate the molecular basis of red blood cell production and how this goes awry in human disease. We utilize modern human genetic approaches to gain insight into diseases of red blood cell production and we use cell biological and biochemical approaches to understand the pathogenesis of these disorders. The selected candidate will work on experimental research projects directly with the laboratory principal investigator (80% effort) and will also spend 20% effort on laboratory management duties, including purchase ordering and preparation of
general lab supplies. A highly motivated and productive technician may get the opportunity to lead an independent research project within the laboratory.
