|Technical Assistant I / II - Functional Genomics Platform||#00269|
TITLE: Technical Assistant I / II - Functional Genomics Platform
CLASSIFICATION: Exempt: Research Staff
REPORTS TO:Principal Investigator or other supervisory laboratory personnel
The Functional Genomics Platform is seeking an enthusiastic and motivated individual who is interested in supporting a diverse set of large-scale lentiviral CRISPR/Cas9 screening projects (for example, understanding how genetic variability contributes to selective liabilities in cancer). The Functional Genomics Platform assists other researchers in designing, performing, and interpreting the results of genome-wide loss-of-function screens in mammalian cells.
Designs and performs bench-level experiments and small independent research projects to support scientific research objectives of the platform. Analyzes experimental data, addresses methodological problems in experimental protocols and results and reports data to supervisor. Uses discretion in prioritizing and organizing workflow and in optimizing methodologies and results. Works as part of a team to execute high-throughput lentiviral CRISPR/Cas9-based screens, including maintaining cultured cell lines, lentivirus production, infection of cultured cells, and screening in a high-throughput facility.
At least one year of experience working in a biomedical research laboratory.
