Lab technician job opening

We are looking for an individual with enthusiasm for biological laboratory research to join our research team at Duke. In this position you will study the basic biology and disease-related mechanisms of visual system development. The successful candidate will fill a full-time Research Technician II position in the laboratory of Jeremy Kay in the Departments of Neurobiology and Ophthalmology.

In this position you will employ cutting edge molecular, imaging, and bioinformatics techniques to advance a project on retinal development in mice. Training on specific techniques will be provided, so this position is suitable for a recent graduate (undergrad or master’s) seeking research experience. Nevertheless, candidates should have some previous research experience, and the strongest candidates will be those who have previously undertaken independent research projects.

An undergraduate or Master’s degree in biological sciences or allied fields (e.g. neurobiology, botany, engineering, zoology, biochemistry, bioinformatics) is required.
