A full-time research technician/assistant position is available in the lab of Dr. Jonathan Friedman in the Department of Cell Biology at UT Southwestern Medical Center. I am looking to hire a highly motivated and organized individual with a strong interest in cell biology. Our lab studies the fundamental cell biological question of how mitochondria cristae architecture is established and how that leads to proper mitochondrial function.
This is the ideal position for a recent college graduate (bachelor's in biology or chemistry), or someone who anticipates graduating college this spring, to have an extended experience working in a lab before pursuing a PhD in biomedical sciences. At least some undergraduate research experience is required.
The primary responsibilities of the position involve assisting the principal investigator and graduate students in the laboratory with experiments, reagent preparation, lab management, and the chance to work on their own independent research project. For example, a previous technician in the lab (who is now leaving for graduate school) will end up with a first-author publication from his work. The candidate will be trained in several techniques, including fluorescence microscopy, yeast and mammalian cell culture, biochemistry, molecular biology, and others.

The position is full-time and includes benefits. The anticipated starting salary is $30,000-35,000 depending on experience.
