The Bondy-Denomy lab is seeking a Junior/Assistant/Associate/Full Specialist to join our group and contribute to new and ongoing projects. Our lab focuses on CRISPR-Cas immune systems and their natural functions in bacteria. We are also interested in developing new tools stemming from both Type I and II CRISPR-Cas systems, both for inhibitor proteins and new applications for these systems in microbes (see Bondy-Denomy et al., Nature 2015, Rauch et al., Cell 2017, Marino et al. Science 2018, Jiang et al. Mol Cell 2018).
The candidate will be expected to contribute to this tool development and CRISPR biology work in the lab, by conducting microbiology and molecular biology techniques, including bacterial and bacteriophage manipulation, cloning, protein purification, and biochemical assays. An exceptional candidate will lead their own independent project, develop new ideas, be familiar with the literature, and participate in procurement of funds, where appropriate. Additionally, the specialist will be expected to assist with managing day-to-day lab operations, and perform general lab duties and be a positive lab citizen.
