The Elkouby lab is recruiting a Research Associate
Our lab investigates germ cells and gonad development in the zebrafish.
We use state-of-the-art live microscopy and genetics to study processes of cell polarity, biomechanics, cell-cell communication, mRNP phase-separation, stem cells, and morphogenesis. Our research will help explaining how germ cell developmental defects lead to infertility in the adult.
Lead research projects using zebrafish.
Initiate, design, execute and analyze experiments.
Develop and implement innovative research tools and protocols.
Train and develop students and other lab members.
Assist lab administrative management.
Communicate data at various scientific settings.
Write/edit/review papers and grants.
PhD or post-doc in life sciences.
Highly motivated creative scientist with a strong record.
Proficiency in molecular biology and biochemistry.
Background in developmental and cell biology/stem cells - an advantage.
Experience in zebrafish work/organ culture/confocal microscopy/CRISPR-Cas9/ bioinformatics - an advantage.
Excellent team player.
Excellent organizational skills.
75% or 100% time position.
