Laboratory Technician, Plant Molecular Systematics
A position for a Bachelor's- or Master's- level technician will be

early evolution of photosynthetic organisms. The
technician will be expected to provide support for the general operation of
the laboratory and will have the opportunity to perform independent 
research. Responsibilities will include, but are not limited to: basic 
molecular methods (DNA and RNA isolation, PCR, cloning, DNA
