A technician/research assistant position is currently available in my 
laboratory in the Department of Molecular, Cellular and Developmental 
Biology, at Yale University. Our research focuses on an analysis of 
developmental timing, using the nematode C. elegans as an 
experimental organism (see http://www.yale.edu/slack). The research 
involves a variety of different procedures including: PCR 
amplification, DNA sequencing, isolation and blot analysis of RNA and 
DNA, preparation of cosmid DNA, plasmid subcloning, microscopy, 
animal anatomy, genetic analysis, generation of transgenic animals, 
cytological analysis, immunostaining. Apart from routine operations, 
the successful applicant will be actively participating in ongoing 
research projects in the lab. The specific research project will 
depend on skills and experience of the candidate hired. Duties also 
include responsibility for overseeing frozen strain collection, and 
general laboratory organization. Requires B.S./B.A. degree in 
applicable science field, with a strong academic record. One year 
prior experience in either molecular biology or C. elegans genetics 
preferred. Excellent organizational and record-keeping skills, 
ability to work independently and troubleshoot are essential 
prerequisites. Experienced Research Assistants as well as recent 
graduates who are interested in gaining research experience, are 
encouraged to apply. The lab is seeking an energetic and highly 
motivated individual. The successful applicant will work in a very
