Life Science Research Professional, Stanford University School of Medicine

Posted 10/23/2017

The O’Brien Lab ( is part of the Department of Molecular and Cellular Physiology at Stanford University School of Medicine. Our goal is to uncover the ongoing dialog that adult stem cells have with the tissues they support, and understand how this dialog happens on the molecular and cellular levels. We use a simple invertebrate organ, the Drosophila midgut, to pioneer new imaging and computational approaches that address basic questions in stem cell biology.

The O’Brien Lab is seeking a highly motivated, detail-oriented Life Science Research Professional 1 (LSRP1) to join our dynamic laboratory environment. The LSRP1 will perform functions and activities involved in defined research projects, which principally involve live and fixed tissue microscopy of Drosophila organs, computerized image analysis (ImageJ/Imaris), basic MATLAB coding, and construction and maintenance of sophisticated Drosophila genetic stocks. The goals of the projects are to understand cellular interactions and signaling in stem cell based Drosophila organs.

At the time of the interview, applicants will be asked to provide evidence of their imaging skills in the form of publications, posters, report, or other documentation.

Interested applicants must visit and enter 76659 in the job number field.
