Research Specialist, Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI), Stanford University, Stanford, CA

Posted 4/12/2021

Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) is an independent, ever-evolving philanthropy that supports basic biomedical scientists and educators with the potential for transformative impact. We make long-term investments in people, not just projects, because we believe in the power of individuals to make breakthroughs over time.

We are currently looking for a highly talented, resourceful Research Specialist to work in Dr. David Kingsley’s lab at Stanford University. The Kingsley lab uses a combination of genetic and genomic approaches (model organisms are mice and stickleback fish) to identify the detailed molecular mechanisms that control evolutionary change in vertebrates.

The ideal candidate enjoys bench research, has strong interpersonal skills, and has the ability to serve as a trusted resource and mentor for more junior lab members. Applicants are required to have a bachelor’s degree in genetics, genomics, molecular biology, evolutionary biology, or similar discipline along with demonstrated hands-on experience in mouse colony work and management, genetics techniques, genomics techniques, molecular biology techniques, and cloning and building constructs. Genomic data analysis experience would be a plus.
