The Rosenberg Lab at UCSF aims to better understand how microbial pathogens cause disease in humans. We use a combination of structural biology, microbial genetics, and innovative methods to investigate the molecular underpinnings of the host-pathogen interface. Our goal is to uncover novel vulnerabilities that will enable faster, cheaper and less toxic treatment of infections.
We are currently seeking a Research Specialist to join a motivated, and highly collaborative team to work on projects related to Mycobacerium tuberculosis (etiology to tuberculosis disease) and the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV2 (etiology to COVID). While previous experience in cell culture techniques and molecular genetics (including genomic editing) is preferred it is not required.
Specific Responsibilities Will Include: • Cell culture • High containment laboratory use • Bacterial maintenance and genomic editing • Cell analysis (cell counting, FACS) • Ability to think independently and design research experiments
Requirements: • BS/MS in Molecular and Cell Biology with relevant lab experience • Extraordinary attention to detail and ability to follow protocols • Must be highly collaborative, team-oriented, and an effective communicator • Experience working with cell culture is preferred but not required • Experience with genomic engineering is a plus but not required
This opportunity is full-time only. No contractors, consultancies or recruiters will be considered.
