Rockefeller University Research Assistant in New York, New York
Job Title Research Assistant
Laboratory / Department Neuroendocrinology
We take an integrated, interdisciplinary approach in our work, combining behavioral analysis and measurements of hormone levels with neurochemical, morphological, neuro- pharmacological, cellular and molecular methodologies. Studies are under way to investigate cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying the effects of stress and sex hormones on neurogenesis, synaptogenesis and dendritic remodeling in the hippocampal region of the adult brain.
We are seeking a motivated and technically skilled Research Assistant to support basic and translational neuroscience research. Will assist and perform molecular and behavioral experiments in addition to maintenance of transgenic mouse models. Molecular techniques include immunocytochemistry, immunofluorescence, western blot, qPCR and ChIP.
Bachelor's degree in science required; educational emphasis in neuroscience or biology preferred. Must be highly motivated, and have experience working with small rodents as well as performing standard molecular and biochemical techniques (qPCR, Western blot). Expertise in next-Generation Sequencing, such as RNAseq, is a plus. The ability to perform Chromatin Immunoprecipitation (ChIP) techniques and previous experience with stereotaxic gene delivery in the mouse brain is strongly preferred.
