|Technical Assistant I - Jain Lab||#00285|
Classification: Exempt: Research Staff
REPORTS TO: Principal Investigator or other supervisory lab personnel
The Jain lab studies the role of RNA aggregation in human health and disease. We are investigating how defective RNA processing may contribute to certain genetic neurological diseases such as Huntington disease and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. We use a variety of biophysical and biochemical approaches to examine aberrations in RNA processing at a molecular and cellular level.
We are looking for a motivated individual to join our growing team in Technical Assistant I position. The technical assistant will conduct experiments to characterize the effects of RNA aggregation in cell culture models.
