Dr. Lawrence Shiow is looking to hire a research assistant for his UCSF lab. Please find details in his message posted here:
I am currently hiring a graduating senior into a full time position to work at UCSF in the Stem Cell building (Institute for Regenerative Medicine). I am a physician-scientist studying newborn brain injury in the laboratory of David Rowitch, MD PhD. We use tissue culture systems and transgenic mouse models to understand how inflammation and hypoxia alter progenitor cells in the brain. You must have some experience doing undergraduate research, but the exact topic is not critical, as long as it is some aspect of cell biology, molecular biology, neuroscience, genetics, or immunology. This is a perfect position for someone looking to go to graduate school or an MD/PhD program in a few years. You will have the benefit of learning at the bench with a young investigator while working in the lab of a senior and established PI.
The start date will be after July 1, 2015. Salary is dependent on experience and will follow a set UCSF salary scale. Experience with sterile tissue culture, microscopy, mouse handling, molecular biology (PCR, western, cloning), histology, and flow cytometry would be favorable, but not required.
Please email me if you wish to apply. Include the department from which you are graduating, your GPA, and the name/dates/contact info of the lab in which you worked. Please include a resume/CV in PDF format that includes 1-2 references and hobbies. Use “SRA” in the subject line when you email me.
