December 15, 2015 – Looking for more experience in lab? 

One current challenge in studying cell signaling is understanding how a conserved signaling pathway can function in many diverse tissues producing diverse outcomes. For instance, the canonical Wnt signaling pathway is used during embryo axis patterning, muscle patterning, brain development, maintaining stem cells in bone, colon, liver, hair, and regulating regeneration!  We have a hypothesis that a key part contributing to the versatility of a signaling pathway is its quantitative design.   We are looking for a driven and creative individual to help carry out a research project investigating the design parameters of the Wnt pathway.

Basic Qualifications.  B.S. degree in relevant fields.  Experience in tissue culture work and basic molecular biology protocols (e.g., Western Blot, cloning).  2-3 letters of recommendation required.  We will consider applicants who can stay for at least 1.5 years.

Preferred Qualifications.  Experience working with mice would be a real plus. Positive attitude, imagination, and resourcefulness.  Organization skill. Communication skill.
