Undergraduate/Graduate Researcher

The Bazzini lab (https://research.stowers.org/bazzinilab/index.html) at Stowers Institute for Medical Research has an opening for an undergraduate or graduate level student or technician to work on a project addressing fundamental questions in biology related to post-transcriptional gene regulation.

The lab is particularly interested in unraveling molecular mechanisms that affect mRNA stability and/or mRNA translation and how those regulations drive vertebrate embryonic development (zebrafish) or are related with human diseases (human cells).

Strong knowledge of bioinformatics, including R or other programming languages (ideally knowledge in statistical methods) as well as experience in handling large-scale sequence data are preferred but not required.

Candidates should be interested in RNA, gene regulatory networks, development and/or genomics. Successful candidates will have the ability to work in a team-oriented environment as well as have excellent verbal and written communication skills.

Minimum requirements include some college coursework with relevant lab, genomics, or bioinformatics experience or experience in a related field. Undergraduate and graduate students are encouraged to apply.

Application Instructions: To apply, please submit a cover letter (less than half a page) that includes a short summary of interests, a CV (3 pages max), and the contact information of 3 professional references to Dr. Ariel Bazzini arb@stowers.org, cc: careers@stowers.org
