Rockefeller University Research Assistant | Laboratory of Molecular Genetics and Immunology in New York, New York

Organization Overview

The Laboratory of Molecular Genetics and Immunology is focused on dissecting the cellular and molecular mechanisms governing the generation of antibody specificity and the translation of that specificity into cellular responses. Our work seeks to identify the genetic components that initiate B cell activation upon antigenic challenge, the controls that maintain tolerance both centrally and in the periphery, and the mechanisms that govern the coupling of antibody specificity to effector cell response.


Research Assistant will be responsible for assisting in the maintenance of large animal colony, weaning, weekly tail tipping and overall good health of our animal models. Will also prepare DNA samples and perform PCR on established mouse lines. The candidate will also assist with in vivo experiments involving immunizations, blood collection, and possibly analysis of harvested animal tissues.


Responsibilities include:

  • Animal husbandry

  • Genotyping and PCR

  • Organizational lab tasks

  • Assisting with in vivo experiments



  • Bachelor's degree

  • Strong organizational skills, detail-oriented and ability to mult-task

  • Ability to work collaboratively in a time as well as functioning independently

At least 1-2 years of prior rodent handling experience preferred. A basic background in biology or science is a plus.
