The Jost laboratory at Harvard Medical School is looking for a research assistant to contribute to our work in microbiome biology. The individual will join a brand-new laboratory with opportunities to contribute to multiple exciting projects, broadly focused on defining the molecular mechanisms of host-microbiome interactions using CRISPR screens, advanced cell culture models, and genetic manipulations of microbiome bacteria.
The research assistant will carry out experiments with mammalian cell lines and human microbiome bacteria, working closely with students and post-doctoral fellows in the laboratory. The research assistant will also participate in lab management duties and maintain cultures of mammalian cell lines. The Research Assistant will work effectively within a culture inclusive of individuals with diverse backgrounds, styles, abilities, and motivations, and appreciate and leverage the capabilities, insights, and ideas of all individuals.
- Bachelor’s degree in Biology, Molecular Biology, Microbiology, Biochemistry, or similar field preferred.
- At least 1 year of research experience is required. Relevant coursework or education may be considered.
- General interest in basic science research.
