HHMI is a major force in advancing biomedical research and science education in the U.S. and beyond. We have an opportunity for a Research Specialist to join the laboratory of Professor Barbara Meyer at the University of California at Berkeley, Ca.
The Meyer laboratory carries out pioneering research on the mechanisms of cell-fate determination, the role of chromosome structure and chromatin modification in gene regulation, and the molecular evolution of chromosome-wide mechanisms of gene control in the nematode C. elegans, with a major emphasis on X-chromosome dosage compensation. Approaches include genetics, genomics, single-molecule imaging, and structural studies including X-ray crystallography.
We are looking for an individual who seeks full-time employment and enjoys the excitement of a world-class scientific laboratory and welcomes the challenge of an energetic environment that maintains a strong commitment to collegiality and teaching.
The Research Specialist will perform independent research involving high-resolution, single-molecule imaging as well as genetics and genomics approaches requiring application of professional judgment, interpretation of experimental results, innovation of new approaches, and preparation of research for presentation and publication.
