Laboratory Technician Position with Dr. Liang Han

A laboratory technician position is available in Dr. Liang Han’s laboratory in the School of Biological Sciences at Georgia Institute of Technology. Dr. Han’s group uses a combination of molecular genetic, immunohistochemical, fluorescence imaging and behavioral approaches to understand how the nervous system receives, transmits and interprets various stimuli to induce physiological and behavioral responses. We are interested in the basic mechanisms underlying somatosensation, including pain, itch and mechanical sensations. We are also working on the role of the nervous system underlying chronic respiratory diseases.

B.S. or M.S. degree in biological sciences or related field is required. Previous experience handling transgenic mouse lines and genotyping is desired. Daily responsibilities include taking care of mouse colonies, genotyping, participating in experiments such as molecular cloning, PCR, cell culture and immunohistochemistry. Laboratory management includes placing orders, reimbursements, interface with vendors, equipment maintenance and upkeep, laboratory organization and upkeep, and compliance with safety regulations.

Applicants should directly e-mail Dr. Liang Han at a single PDF file that includes CV and names/contact information of three references.
