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 dynamic, interested, and intellectually curious Research Technician to work in Dr. Sean Carroll’s lab at the University of Maryland in College Park, MD. The Carroll lab explores the origin of novelty – one of the central questions of evolutionary biology. Most recently, the team is investigating biochemical novelties such as the origin and evolution of snake venom toxins.
The ideal candidate is looking for a long-term stable full-time position, is passionate about bench research, has strong analytical and organizational skills, and can work capably both as part of a team and independently. Applicants are required to have a bachelor’s degree in the life sciences (with courses in immunology and biochemistry) along with a minimum of 2 years of hands-on laboratory experience. Experience in monoclonal antibody development and protein chemistry are essential. Animal handling experience (such as mice or other vertebrates) would be a plus.
