Rockefeller University Research Study Coordinator, Molecular Genetics and Immunology in New York, New York
Job Title Research Study Coordinator, Molecular Genetics and Immunology
Laboratory / Department Laboratory of Molecular Genetics and Immunology
The Laboratory of Molecular Genetics and Immunology is focused on dissecting the cellular and molecular mechanisms governing the generation of antibody specificity and the translation of that specificity into cellular responses. Our work seeks to identify the genetic components that initiate B cell activation upon antigenic challenge, the controls that maintain tolerance both centrally and in the periphery, and the mechanisms that govern the coupling of antibody specificity to effector cell response.
The Research Study Coordinator will process patient blood samples and keep a well-maintained inventory. Responsibilities include employing standard molecular biological/biochemical techniques involved in recombinant DNA manipulation and purification, producing proteins/antibodies using cell culturing protocols, assisting with in vitro and in vivo experiments using immunological-based techniques with cancer/infectious disease mouse model systems, and performing husbandry, maintenance, and genotyping of mouse lines. Additional responsibilities include helping with organizational tasks for the lab. #INDCL
Bachelor's degree in science required; educational emphasis in biological or chemical sciences. Must have basic laboratory experience and computer skills. Experience with flow cytometry highly preferred. Must be motivated and willing to work with animals.
