We are seeking an R&D Associate to join the Pre Therapeutic Target Discovery team. This team is responsible for a target discovery screen that uses genetically modified mice to evaluate therapeutic potential of both novel and validated disease targets and identify promising leads for follow up. This individual will be a key contributor for identifying and photographing expression patterns and morphological phenotypes in all tissues and preparing data for presentation and database entry.
In this role, a typical day might include:
• Tissue dissection, staining and photography
• Identification and documentation of expression patterns and phenotypes in multiple cell types and tissues
• Regular use of microscopy (bright field and fluorescent) and data base entry
• Testing and integrating new assays and technologies into the screen
This role may be for you if you are:
• Detail oriented and able to maintain high levels of data integrity and consistency.
• Organized, able to manage your own work flow and consistently meet weekly deadlines.
To be considered for this role, you must have a bachelor's degree with 2-4 years lab experience. Working with mice is essential.
