The Parker lab at Caltech is searching for a Functional Genetic Technician to generate genetically modified rove beetles (Dalotia coriaria) for the study of behavior and chemical ecology.
The successful candidate will work with the Principal Investigator and lab members (graduate students and postdocs) to establish and maintain engineered beetle lines created using CRISPR/CAS9 gene editing and transposon-mediated transgenesis technologies.
The position requires competence in molecular biology techniques for the design and construction of plasmid vectors and sgRNAs for insect genome engineering. The position also demands careful screening and husbandry of insect cultures. Necessary bioinformatic skills can be acquired through training in the Parker lab.
We are an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.
