The Marine Biological Laboratory is seeking applicants for full-time Research Assistant and Research Associate positions with the Josephine Bay Paul Center for Comparative Molecular Biology and Evolution
To develop CRISPR in rotifers:
We seek a motivated, creative and innovative Research Assistant or Research Associate. Our research combines comparative genomics, biochemistry, and life history to study aging, maternal effects, and DNA damage prevention and repair using rotifers, a novel aquatic invertebrate model system. The successful candidate will develop genome editing techniques in rotifers, including CRISPR/Cas9.
To study the biochemistry of DNA repair in bdelloids:
We seek a Research Assistant to join the laboratory of David Mark Welch. Our research combines comparative genomics, biochemistry, and life history to study the evolution of bdelloid rotifers. The successful candidate will contribute to an ongoing project to clone, express, purify, and assay a variety of rotifer proteins involved in DNA damage prevention and repair.
To sequence microbial communities:
We seek applicants for a full-time Research Assistant position with the Keck Sequencing Facility. The successful applicant will contribute to projects that will explore diversity of microbes in various communities and the influence of changing environments on microbial population structures.
