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 are currently looking for a Laboratory Manager to manage the day-to-day operations of Dr. Elliot Meyerowitz’s lab on-site at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech). The Meyerowitz lab has the goal of understanding the mechanisms of plant development, using both experimental and computational methods to test hypotheses. They concentrate on the shoot apical meristem and its derivative structures (primarily flowers), because this meristem is responsible for the development of the entire above-ground part of the mature plant and utilizes a number of different pattern-forming processes that are as yet poorly understood.
Applicants are required to have a bachelor’s degree in biology, chemistry, or a related discipline. A minimum of 3 years of experience working in a lab environment is required. Experience with Ariba, TechMart, or other purchasing software is preferred and previous lab management experience would be a plus.
